How To Add Verizon Online Email Account To Outlook

Microsoft Outlook lets you configure different email accounts into one single platform so that your email management becomes easy. If your Internet Service Provider is Verizon, you might probably have an email account with Verizon.
When you setup a Verizon Online email account, you will be provided with a user name and password. Once you have all the required information to use your Verizon Online email account, you can add your Verizon account to your Microsoft Outlook account so that you don’t have to login separately. To use your Verizon email account, you first need to setup your email software with your Verizon email account settings.
There are some important account settings that you need to configure in order to use Outlook for Verizon Web Mail. The configuration settings are as follows;

 Server information:

Incoming mail (POP3):
Outgoing mail (SMTP):

 Server Port numbers:

Incoming mail (POP3):  995
