    just got the email yesterday

    The next question is cost, is there going to be a charge from AOL to use their service or is Verizon picking up the tab.
    I guess the next question to come up will be Internet services from Verizon that is not FiOS.

    I can seriously see them dropping that segment since the customer base the uses DSL is small in comparison to the FiOS market.

    An AOL mail account is free.
    Same with Gmail. Dont let anybody make you think you need to pay for an email account.
    Chaos breathes life into routine.

    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.
    I don't have any information to provide but I do want to congratulate you on being 84 and even knowing about this technology. My mom is 83 and it just blows her mind when we try to tell her anything. She actually has a cell phone (flip phone) and every once in a while she actually turns it on. Don't leave her a voice mail though, she doesn't know how to listen to them

    I love her to pieces though.

    When I changed ISPs from Earthlink to @Home
    .... it was going to be such a pain in the ass to migrate all my email tech 'subscriptions' at the time I moved to Webmail never looking back having to 'migrate' again
    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    Just got a notice from my cell phone company that the verizon.net email associated with my account expires on 4/28 and needs to be update on their website. I haven't received anything through our email about it though.

    Just curious how this notice was received. I've gotten nothing via email about it and I have paperless billing, so not sure if I'm missing something. I first heard about this change from a friend when I gave her my email address.

    I was notified by e-mail.

    I called Verizon on Saturday and they said that if you access your email through Yahoo, you don't have to make the transition.

    I had heard that this was happening through QVC, of all people.

    QUOTE.

    Effective April 28, 2017 Verizon will no longer support verizon.net email addresses. You'll be asked to convert to AOL Mail or create a new email address with another provider.

    We want to ensure you have no interruption in receiving QVC emails, including your order & shipping confirmations, Customer Care correspondences, and promotional emails.

    Please be sure to convert your email address to AOL or provide us with another email address. If you change your email address, visit our Email & Mobile Preferences page to update. You may need to select Email & Mobile Preferences on the left to update. Don't forget to submit your change at the bottom of the page.

    Please visit www.verizon.com/email for more information.

    UNQUOTE

    Of course, I called Verizon and said What? Why am I hearing this from QVC and not from you? The guy explained that they're not just dumping Verizon.net all at once for all their millions and millions of customers - instead, they're doing it in buckets of people over the course of one year. (People are on different servers all over the country.) The migration to AOL actually started in March. And when it's my turn, I will receive an email well before my Verizon.net stops working (unless I take the actions they said to do if I want to keep Verizon.net.

    Sure enough, I got my notice last week and followed the instructions and am now fully migrated to AOL and will be able to keep the address for free and forever. I actually changed from POP to IMAP, by preference.

    Bottom line: If you haven't received the notice directly from Verizon: IT'S NOT YOUR TURN YET. :)

    Just got my notification. Drop dead date June15. I've got my main account and 4 sub accounts, one of which my dad uses. Gotta figure out the best move for him.
