Ok
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

Since the e-mail is not working on your phone, please tell me if you have a computer you can use just to check if you can access your e-mail account there?

Thanks,

no problem there
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

That's good. It means your e-mail account is fine, but the e-mail settings on your phone probably need to be corrected. Do you see any error message when checking for new e-mails or when trying to send an e-mail using your phone?

OK. Please tell me the make and model of your phone. Also, do you know when the e-mail problem first started to occur?

Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

Thanks for the information!

Do you use a default e-mail app that came with your phone, called "Email" that looks like a white envelope and has a red @ symbol, or you use another e-mail app?

Let's first remove the existing e-mail account.

To do that, please go to Settings and then scroll down to Accounts. Tap on Email and then tap on MORE. Select Remove account and confirm.

Was your Verizon e-mail account listed under E-mail accounts and were you able to remove it?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no email account there
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

OK. Let's re-add the e-mail account. Do the following:

1. In the Settings menu, tap on Accounts

2. Tap on Add account located at the bottom

3. Tap on Email

4. Now type your e-mail address and the password, and tap NEXT. The phone should automatically look for the correct e-mail settings. Just make sure to type the correct password

5. When done, you should be see the Accounts menu again. To verify if the account has been added, tap on Email. You should see your e-mail account listed there

If you see your e-mail account listed there, go back to the home screen and tap on the app called Email. If you don't see it, tap on Apps to see all the apps and then look for Email there.

Let me know if you can see your e-mails.

Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

You can verify your password ***** signing into the Verizon web mail interface. Please use your computer and visit this web page:

https://webmail.verizon.com

Check if you can sign into your e-mail account using the same password ***** type in your phone.

still nothing on cell phone takes me to yahoo mail
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

OK, let's try with the manual setup instead. I will provide the instructions now. In the meantime, you can go to the Accounts section on your phone and remove the e-mail account in case it is there.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
ok well ive tried that also with verizon on various settings , i guess we will try that
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

Instructions for manual config:

1. Go to the Accounts section and tap on Add account

2. Tap on Email

3. Type your e-mail address and password. You can check the "Show password" box to see the typed password. Make sure you type the correct now

4. Tap on Manual setup

5. Tap on POP3

6. Use the following settings for incoming mail server (receiving e-mails):

Email address: your e-mail address

Username: full e-mail address

POP3 server: pop.verizon.net

Security type: SSL

Port: 995

7. Tap Next and see what happens. It should display you a confirmation or an error message.

Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

OK. Have you tried using any other e-mail app, except this that came with the phone?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
nope
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

Let's try with the Yahoo! Mail for Android app. Please go to the home screen and tap on Play Store. Use the search at the top and type: Yahoo and then tap on the first search result that should appear - yahoo mail.

Tap on the first app that says Yahoo Mail - Stay Organized!

Install it and open it. Tap on Sign in and type your e-mail account and password.

Let me know the results.

still nothing i have tried that already
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

That's quite strange. What you can try next is to go with the manual config again, and instead of typing the full e-mail address in the Username box, type only the first part of the e-mail address that comes before the @ symbol. For example, if your e-mail address was:***@******.***, you would need to type john123 in the Username box.

Use the same settings for other boxes and tap Next. See if that makes any difference.

i will try that again also, but i tried that a couple of days ago, did not work
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
no luck
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

Hmm. My next suggestion is to access the Verizon web mail interface on your computer and change (reset) the password. After that, wait for about 2-3 minutes and then check if your phone will accept the new password.

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
says old password *****
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

Please use the reset method where you don't need to type the current password, but answer a few questions about your account. Access the password ***** by going to this link:

https://signin.verizon.com/sso/mForgotFlows/mpassword/verifyIdentity.jsp

Or, a shorter version of that link is:

http://tinyurl.com/VerizonWebmailReset

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
it took it on the computer, but not the cell phone
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

Now when you have reset the password, please go with all the previous methods of setting up an e-mail account:

1. Use the standard (automatic) configuration when tapping on Add account

2. Use the manual config with both your full e-mail address typed into the Username box and with only the short Verizon username

3. Use a Yahoo! Mail app

Just make sure to type the new password. Let me know the results.

still nothing
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

I am starting to think that something is wrong with your phone. May I know if your phone can accept any other e-mail account, for example your Google, Yahoo!, Microsoft (Hotmail), etc?

If you haven't tried to set up another account, please try it now. Use the standard method where you only need to type the e-mail address and password.

i have no problem with old email going through email app yahooo
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

I am starting to run out of ideas. It really doesn't make any sense why the phone won't accept the settings and the password ***** your Verizon e-mail account. I think I suggested you everything that can be done. Really strange.

To confirm, you have already contacted the Verizon support about this problem?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
do u think someone hacked the account, they said it was a portal problem that i have to seperate the association with yahho/verizon and remove portal othrough verizon
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

I am not sure what happened, but if someone hacked the account, I don't think you would be able to easily access it on your computer. So, I think the account itself is fine. I just don't know if your phone doesn't accept only your Verizon account or any Verizon account.

You could test that if you find someone who is using Verizon as well, so you could test if their account would be accepted.

Ask Your Own Email Question
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

As a workaround, you could access the Verizon e-mail account on your computer and set e-mail forwarding to another e-mail address that your phone accepts. That way, any e-mail sent to your Verizon e-mail address would be accessible on another e-mail address, for example your Google, Yahoo! or Microsoft account.

What do you think about that?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
how do you do that
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

See the instructions described here:

https://www.verizon.com/support/residential/internet/highspeed/email/email+tools/questionsone/85734.htm

Shorter version of that link:

http://tinyurl.com/VerizonEmailForward

Use any other e-mail address that your phone can accept.

Ask Your Own Email Question
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

Hello again!

Several days have passed since I suggested forwarding e-mails to another e-mail address you can access on your phone, and you haven't replied, so I am wondering if you were able to set up e-mail forwarding and if it is working correctly?

Let me know by sending me a reply below.

Thanks,
IT Miro

Could not do that either,spent hours with a verizon support team & nothing
Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

It shouldn't be that hard. If you wish, I can remotely access your computer and help you set up e-mail forwarding. If it works, you can then set up the e-mail account on your phone.

Let me know if you would like that.

Email technician: IT Miro, Computer Scientist replied 1 year ago

I can offer my assistance using a secure remote connection, or, if you want, you can give me your Verizon e-mail address and password ***** that I can test the e-mail forwarding on my computer.

I don't see how else I can help.
