Outgoing Mail Server Settings
General Email Setup
In all Mail setups, when you
are asked to enter the SMTP server (outgoing.verizon.net),
you will be asked via button or prompt whether your server
requires authentication. In this box click yes (check
it off) and a configuration box will appear. It will ask for:
username. @verizon.net is not required)
Password: (verizon password)
Then it will have an option to
save password, which you may want to check off to eliminate
repetitious entering of this information.
If asked about secure password
authentication leave it blank.

Verizon used to also require that on the General
tab of Outlook Express, and the Personal Settings tab
of most other email clients, that in the Email Address
field (Note: not the Reply to Field) you place your verizon
email address (i.e. firstname.lastname@example.org). It appears that
this is no longer required. But if you have done everything
according to the directions above and your mail is not working
for some reason, try filling in the Email Address
