Question and Answer

Have a question regarding your Outlook email setup or think you can help other Verizon (Yahoo!) users out? Please comment below!

  • Yes, the suggestion of going to the Yahoo web and get a password generated for Outlook 2016/365 mail does work. Like others it did not for iOS mail. HOWEVER. I deleted my Verizon/Yahoo accounts in iOS and rebuilt them by using iOS eMail Yahoo option and signing in using my Yahoo account logon. THIS WORKED. You do lose your old history but in my case that's in Outlook anyway and is just wastest storage space on my iPhone/iPad.

  • Yup, like someone mentione in Yahoo webmail going to account settings, then security and at the bottom manage app password. You now need to generate a password per app/device. Once window is closed you can no longer see these passwords. Worked like a charm, thanks everyone for this info! I've been thinking something similar has happened but no info came from Yahoo or Verizon, VZ tech support had no idea about this. I looked in security thinking they did something similar to Gmail blocking other clients but their naming was less than obvious.

  • Similar to the other complaints, Outlook email collection stopped working on all of our computers as of 3/18/20 pm. My home business consists of 4 different Dell PCs running Windows 7 & Windows 10 and 2 different Ipads. All fail in exactly the same way. My wife and I both have separate Verizon.net email addresses that we've had since 2007. On a positive note, we can both collect our individual emails using the Yahoo website via Chrome or Explorer however it is a workaround for now and not a long term solution. We need to use Outlook so emails are retained/created within our home network as our business relies on Outlook's email functionality. I've gone thru all of the settings Yahoo suggests but nothing helps. Please help us fix this, Thanks.

  • None of the devices (iPad, iPhone or my HP Windows Laptop) I use to send and receive email are able to receive my verizion/yahoo email. Has there been changes to port, SSL/TLS, or POP settings?
