Question and Answer

  • 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?
