Thread: Verizon.net e-mail

  1. #1

    Verizon.net e-mail

    Got a notice today that my Verizon e-mail will go away in May. As an 84 year old curmudgeon, I hate change.
    They offer the option to transfer my contacts and my verizon.net E-mail address to AOL mail.
    Otherwise I am on my own.
    I miss how with Outlook Express I could down load my e-mails to my computer and keep them as long as I wanted.
    I have never had AOL. Do the e-mails stay on their server like they do with Verizon?
    Not having to notify the world that my e-mail has changed is tempting. I am sure I would miss somebody.
    Do you think AOL will charge a fee for this service? Verizon is my ISP provider and e-mail was part of the package.

    Well, that stinks. I have Verizon.net mail also, but haven't seen any notice yet. I was planning on dropping them anyway, but not prepared for it by May.

    I did find an announcement online that Verizon is getting out of the email business completely.

    FYI there are no changes if you use a POP Client such as Outlook Express to download your email to your computer if you go ahead and do the suggested transition to AOL.

    When using webmail you will use the AOL page, which is a lot better than Verizon and now I can access my Verizon email on my phone easier with the AOL app. I thought it was going to be a pain too and annoy me too, but it turns out to be a non issue/win.
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    What state do you live in? A year ago in April all Verizon customers in Ca, Tx, and Fl, just coincidentally the three largest populated states that used Verizon e mail were forced to AOL - sold out. I'm used to AOL now, but I wonder which other states have been dropped to pad the upper profit margin for Verizon. The cable TV was also sold to Frontier Communications. Is that your situation as well?

    I'm really having issues with Yahoo Mail lately. I admit I'm using older PCs, but their front end seems to be getting slower and slower. They now want me to use their brand new front end, but I'm afraid it will be unusable on my older machines.

    I got that notice also, you have the option to keep your Verizon email which its states in the notice to click some link. It was so stupid, I had to call tech support to change something but my email is still Verizon.net.
