Anyone here at the Factory with a Verizon.net email address through AOL who uses a 3rd party email client like Outlook Express, should check out this link:
Changes to your 3rd party email client connection settings must be made by 11/7/17.
Email messages about this were supposedly sent to all Verizon / AOL email customers but I know of several (including myself) who did not get this message.
Thanks for putting this out there. I am another that never received notice.
I received that email also. It sounds like they just want to make sure that customer's port settings have been set properly if a third-party email client is used. I use Mozilla Thunderbird as an email client. These incoming and outgoing port settings have been made available for a long time. They were also made available when Verizon acquired AOL and starting using the newly acquired AOL servers. Nothing new...
I checked my port settings when I received that email just to be sure they are correct ... and they are correct.
a couple of days ago. All seems to be OK. My ports were OK. For some reason I had been using pop.aol.com and smtp.aol.com for the past few months. Not sure why I would have changed them from the VZ addresses?? Regardless, changed back to the VZ addresses and everything feels pretty much the same apart for requesting all passwords to be re-done.
