Can't Add Mail Account on my 4s

Would really appreciate some help on this one......Switched from a Droid to an iPhone 4s yesterday and can not add any of my Verizon email accounts for some reason. 

When I walk through the steps of adding an account and hit "Next" I get the following error:

Cannot connect using SSL. Do you want to try setting up the account without SSL?

Then, when I select "Yes", it says it's "verifying" and then the following appears:

The SMTP server "" is not responding. Check your network connection and that you entered the correct information in the "Outgoing Mail server" field.

I though seeing "Yahoo" in the server name was odd, so I deleted that and re-tried.  Also double and triple checked my password.

Right now, I am not diggin' the iPhone!

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

@gunnerboy1 - Receiving emails is very important. Is your iPhone 4s still having a hard time setting up your email account through Verizon? I know it has been a few days, so I wanted to check in with you. If you are still having issues, let us know as we'd like to help out.

Thank you Gunnerboy1! We look forward to hearing from you.
