Mozilla Thunderbird ISP Configuration Settings: Verizon.

thunderbirdVerizon provides two types of email accounts: verizon.net and Verizon Yahoo!. If your email address ends in "verizon.net", you are not a Verizon Yahoo! user. Note that Verizon Yahoo! broadband has been discontinued in some areas. See Verizon's service notice for more information. 

This article describes the connection settings for both Verizon services, and describes how to change from Yahoo! to Verizon.net (if your Yahoo! broadband service has been discontinued). This article assumes that you have already created an account (for example, through Automatic Account Configuration) and provides instructions for modifying an existing account. 

See Configure an account for general information about setting up Thunderbird accounts.

Verizon.net

Use these settings if your email address ends with the suffix "verizon.net" (for example, "johndoe@verizon.net"). Note that there are conflicting reports regarding the availability of connection security and the ports on which connection security is available. You may need to contact Verizon for assistance.
