Verizon arrived on October 7, 1983, and since then it’s one of the, if not the largest wireless communications service provider in the United States. Believe it or not, but AT&T is the company that created Verizon, unintentionally of course.
Before Verizon got the name, we have all come to know it was part of Bell Atlantic (one of the seven bells that came after AT&T was forced to give up its control of Bell Systems and with time Verizon was born.
Once Verizon was up and running, it started offering many services to its millions and millions of customers, and one of the services is Email. It’s a service that automatically comes when you sign up with Verizon and that you can quickly set up by using your Verizon Email ID and Password.
Two Ways to Access Your Verizon Webmail
There are two ways that you can access your Verizon Webmail, either by using the browser on your device or computer or by setting it up directly on your device or Mac. If you want to access your Webmail through a particular browser, in that case, you don’t have to worry about setting up any type of settings since you will only need to go to Verizon’s Webmail Site and log in with your Verizon Email ID and the password you set up.

- Incoming Server Port Number should be on 995
- The Outgoing mail server (SMTP): should be smtp.verizon.net
- The Outgoing Server Port Number should be 465
- It is also imperative that you make sure that the SSL encryption is turned ON for both incoming and outgoing mail servers to keep your information secured.
Be Careful with Your Firewall
Verizon does advise HSI (DSL) users that have a Westell or an Actiontec Modem (Actiontec GT784WG exempt) that are currently using its firewall to set the firewall settings to Low if they want to be able to set up their Verizon Webmail correctly.
I’m sure that once you have it set up, you can always go back and make the necessary adjustments with your Firewall.
