Verizon Domain billing + Email Access problem
Enthusiast - Level 1

I have 2 problems. I've spent many, many hours on the phone (mostly on hold) with 6 or 7 different Verizon Departments trying unsuccessfully to resolve them. Each department directed me elsewhere, until the last one directed me back to where I started.

I have a Verizon email and domain account only, needed to cancel FiOS service a few years ago. I have been paying $19.95 per year to maintain the email/domain.

1) After serious effort, I have been unable to pay the amount due either online or by phone. The system won't allow it for me or Verizon customer service folks, at least the ones I could reach.  I also wanted to change the address, since I've moved, but nobody was able to help me with that.  I eventually discovered the Site Control Manager online and updated my contact information.  At least, I think I did, since I received no confirmation that the changes were accepted.  And more importantly, I was still unable to access the Verizon site to pay (or by phone).

2) For years I've had a Verizon email account and 3 sub-accounts.  Starting yesterday afternoon, suddenly I was NOT able to access them via Mac mail or directly via the internet.  Again, after nearly 5 hours on the phone and being directed everywhere but the right place to fix the problem, I still have no Verizon email service. One person told me there was a security breach or outage of some sort and many Verizon customers were experiencing the problem and it was being addressed. I was told to reset my password.  But the system wouldn't allow me to do that.  One of Verizon’s tech people, tried multiple times from his end, but nothing.  Finally I was sent to something called OSC who claimed they were an outside service, no longer affiliated with Verizon. That guy forwarded my call back to where I started 24 hours ago.

I am at a loss.  Can somebody please help????
