I had been getting mails. Now out of the blue I get I need to update my settings. I have canceled my account in outlook, set it up again....didn't work. I have changed passwords with Verizon and AOL but I simply can't get email without using a browser...why?
If you are using the correct settings it should work. There are even a few variations that work (TLS instead of SSL).
Remember you are talking to peeps here not Verizon Support.
IF you want some help from the peers here Post some of your settings. Do not post confidential info such as USERID or Password.
see help for POP
or for IMAP
