I am unable to use Entourage on my MacBook Pro with Lion after switching from Comcast to Verizon. Neither Verizon nor Apple could help me with this. Is there a trick???

Did you change your email account too?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
If you mean by my account changing my email address to verizon--I did that---and cancelled Comcast.
Expert:  Mike replied 2 years ago.
OK and you can neither send nor recieve?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I can't send or receive through Entourage. The Person at the Apple store set me up with Apple mail but I'd greatly prefer to continue to use Entourage. I just went to Comcast.net and found that I'm receiving email through the web for my Comcast address. I haven't given my Verizon address to anyone but I'd like to use Truthswitch once I figure things out.

Thanks.

I thought you cancelled Comcast? Is your Verizon email setup like this?

Mail server settings
Incoming mail server (POP3): incoming.verizon.net
Incoming Server Port Numbers: 995
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): outgoing.verizon.net
Outgoing Server Port Numbers: 465 Why is this important?
Your Verizon Online user name
Your Verizon Online password
Make sure "This server requires a secure connection (SSL)" is checked.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I'll check. I believe the port server numbers are different in my set up.
Expert:  Mike replied 2 years ago.
OK try that first.

I replied to your webisite that I still can't send or receive Verizon email using Entourage.
Expert:  Mike replied 2 years ago.
You have to reply here I don't see that. Can you go here and sign in to your account?

I just used the Automatic Assistant to set up my account in Entourage and that worked. Not sure why I didn't do that before. It's a POP account.

Thanks for your help

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill Bill M. Schenectady, New York
