I recently received a message telling me to change my email servers in my email software from incoming.verizon.net to pop.verizon.net and from outgoing.verizon.net to smtp.verizon.net.
I followed the instructions on setting up outlook express with the new server names.
However, I have been unable to connect to the server to retrieve my mail.
The error message is that the server is not responding.
So I did a Ping of pop,verizon net.
It returned the IP address of 22.214.171.124
All four pings returned request timed out.
Is there a problem with this server?
Do I have the wrong server name?
What can I do to get outlook express to retrieve my mail??
Just to clarify on the pings timing out, a lot of corporate servers have ping responses disabled. Helps keep traffic controlled and helps prevent DoS ping attacks.
