One such common issue is that they can’t receive email.

This problem is very common with AOL or even Yahoo.  There might be many reasons that you are not able to receive emails.

If you are using any third party application to access your emails and you can’t receive emails or even having problems connecting or sending emails, then one reason might be that you have not updated the application.

How To Fix Verizon Mail Not Receiving Emails Problem-

To continue using your email service, try the following steps:

  • Update the third party application with a new version.
  • Make sure that you are using your full email id as your username while login. Such as username@aol.com or username@verizon.net instead of just username.
  • If you see a security certificate pop up asking to accept it, you need to do that, but also you need to consult that support team for that.

If you are still having the problem and still can’t receive emails by using the third party application using POP service then you need to follow the following steps.

Try different setting; add a second account using IMAP service. You need to use imap.aol.com server and port 993 as your incoming server.

Also, don’t forget to enable SSL service. Also, do not remove your POP account as you will need that account to view your old email messages.

Next, your outgoing email server would smtp.verizon.net and the port number would 465.

If you are using your Verizon or AOL email using a third-party app, you need to manually configure the server name and the port number.
