Tip & How-To about Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 for PC

I cannot access my Verizon mail _ Verizon.net server responded: Authentication failed.

Hi.

The following tip applies to users that want to access Verizon mail using an e-mail managing software as for example Outlook, Outlook Express, Eudora and similar.

The checkup procedure and server settings can also be used to setup your verizon email on a mobile or on a PDA.

If the Verizon server responded: Authentication failed, that means that either your ID, or your password had not been recognized.

Ensure that Caps Lock is not on.
ID and password are case sensitive, ensure that you use capitals only if needed.

Ensure that you entered the right user ID and password for your mail.

The ID must be your Verizon email address, or the first part of the Verizon email address (before @ sign). Password must be your Verizon email password.

If for example the address is MyMail@verizon.net , then try first putting id MyMail@verizon.net , if that does not work, try again with MyMail as ID.
The format that is supposed to work on Verizon is MyMail@verizon.net.


Ensure that the server settings you are using are correct:

1. Incoming mail server (POP3) - incoming.verizon.net.
2. Outgoing mail server (SMTP) - outgoing.verizon.net.


Ensure that you have not set the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)
Ensure that ports are POP3 PORT: 110. SMTP PORT: 25

Turn off any active firewall or security software. Also ensure that your router is not blocking port 110 (for POP server) or port 25 (for SMTP).

If all that does not work, then there may be an issue that depends on Verizon server. Also try calling Verizon online to find out if there is any additional issue that can affect your account.

Regards.

Message recall


Outlook Express 6 was intended as a way to download your mail and view it locally on the computer its used on. In most cases mail accessed with Outlook Express was done so using POP account settings, resulting in the mail being deleted off the main mail server (in your case, verizon) and leaving only the copy of that email sitting on your computer in Outlook Express.
Of course if you were using more customized mail settings, its possible to keep the mail from being deleted from the server and have access to it from other computers or being logging into your mail account through a web browser like Firefox or Chrome, etc.
So to answer your question... If the email still exists on the server (verizon) then yes it can be done. But then accessing your account via the web would be far easier than doing it with Outlook Express.
On the other hand, if the email cannot be seen on your verizon account online, then accessing it with Outlook Express will not be possible. If its not there, its not there.

If the email physically exists on your computer in Outlook Express, then regardless of the account it was received through, it should still be there. If you changed your computer logon information, you might have inadvertently switched identities, resulting in your mail appearing to be gone. It could still be safe and sound, but hiding under another mail identity. You can find this by looking in your menu in Outlook Express for switching identities. If you see more than one identity available, switch to another and look for your mail.


I hope this helps.

unable to access email account on acer net book . i have a laptop running blueyonder broadband,when i try to connect my netbook to my outlook express email account i get unable to access the mail server.


Hi

This sounds like your user account settings are not correct and need to be input via the account management section to look like the following:

  • Customer Email format - user.name@blueyonder.co.uk
  • Outgoing Mail Server - smtp.blueyonder.co.uk
  • Outgoing server type - SMTP
  • Incoming mail server - pop3.blueyonder.co.uk
  • Incoming server type - POP3
  • Password - for example, Rich4rd1

  • Thanks
