iOS 8 issues with email

Hi

I recently updated to iOS 8 on my iPhone 5. I now can no longer pull my Verizon email to my iPhone. I have tried deleting and adding the account, verified the port numbers and passwords. I keep getting the same message, "Pop.verizon.net is not responding". Any ideas? Thanks

Working before?  perhaps something wrong with IOS 8.  Also possible you hit it when a Verizon email server is down. 

Make sure you can access your email with the Webserver to make sure you are one of those accounts under attack that verizon was forced to suspend subject to a password reset.

Thanks. I do have access to my web server email. Also this has been an issue for multiple days so don't believe it's a server being down. Thanks though!

Same here. My mail has not been working since I updated to iOS8. At first I was only able to receive mail and not send. I removed and re-added the account and now it won't add back at all. My Outlook isn't working on my MBP, either. However I can access webmail. Maybe the pop servers are broken.

I updated by iPad and iPhone 5 2 days ago to the new ios8 and cannot get emails no longer. I am able to get emails through the Verizon site and checked all settings on my devices. Called verizon tech support yesterday, after spending long time on phone, I was told Apple apps and some Verizon servers are not compatible or not communicating. No solution. I am so annoyed. Can anyone help? I noted someone had att help solve the problem which is also my cell provider. Did not quite understand what att did. My other option, unless someone resolves, is drop the Verizon email. If there is an issue, the corporations should be solving problems on their own systems for the consumer. Yesterday Verizon made it my problem.
