Everyday Tips from the ComputerMom

I very rarely send out more than one email in a month, but, right after I sent newsletter earlier this week, it came to my attention that Verizon is leaving the email business, and everybody with a verizon.net email address has to make some decisions, and quickly. As Verizon now owns AOL, their solution for verizon.net email clients is to switch them to the AOL server.

Attached is a copy of an email from Verizon, forwarded to me from an affected client. If you have not yet gotten an email like this, you will get one soon.

As switching to AOL will allow you to continue using your verizon.net email address, I recommend that everyone take that option, at least for the short term. If the AOL mail service works for you, then you are all set. If not, you will have some breathing room and time to make a decision about a new email address.

As always, please feel free to call me with questions, and schedule an appointment if you need any help with any of this.

Regards,

We emailed you a few days ago to tell you effective April 05, 2017, we'll no longer provide verizon.net email service. Other than this change, your Verizon service(s) won't be affected.

We have two options for you to consider. Please review both options and take action today to avoid losing access to your email.
 
Choosing an option is easy.
  1. Go here to sign into your verizon.net email account.
  2. Select Keep verizon.net email address or Try any other email provider to complete the setup.
 
 
Option 1. Keep your current email address with AOL Mail.
By choosing this option you will:
  • Keep your verizon.net email address
  • Migrate to AOL Mail
  • Retain email, contacts and calendar(s) automatically
 
 
Option 2. Try any other email provider.
By choosing this option, you will:
  • No longer be able to use your current verizon.net email address
  • Establish an account with a mail provider of your choosing like Outlook.com
    or Gmail
  • Manually move your email, contacts and calendar(s)
 
 
To confirm this message is valid, visit verizon.com and select Announcements under the Tools section at the bottom of the page.
