New Verizon email settings and gmail
Enthusiast - Level 2

I am unclear if I need to change my gmail to use the new verizon settings for, port 995. I use gmail to get my Verizon email using POP3. When I enter the new information, I get the error message "Server denied POP3 for the given username and password." I did check the SSL box.

The username and password work if I use port 110. 

Thanks for any guidance.

You do need to make the changes. 

More details would be needed to explain why it didn't work.  Note the changes to Server Name, Port numbers, the use of SSL, and that password must be presented as normal plain text. The actual communication is encrypted with SSL so the plain text is protected.

Note that this is a peer to peer forum.
