Can receive mail, cannot send.

Client: Thunderbird

  • Last successful outgoing message 5PM 5/20. First failed outgoing 9PM 5/20. Symptom was NB connect error 1460.
  • Discovered outgoing server was set to outgoing.verizon.net, port 587, password sent insecurely (honestly don't know how it got there, since last outage Feb 2014).

Still no luck. BTW I can ping outgoing.verizon.net, but smtp.verizon.net appears DEAD ("request timed out").

These are the new settings:

  • Incoming mail server (POP3): pop.verizon.net
  • Incoming Server Port Numbers: 995
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.verizon.net
  • Outgoing Server Port Numbers: 465  Why is this important?
  • Make sure SSL encryption is enabled for the incoming and outgoing mail server.
