I have Verizon FIOS, but I want to be able to use Outlook
I have FIOS, but I want to be able to use OUTLOOK, since when I link onto email addresses from websites it defaults to OUTLOOK. What happens is that the email I send goes to the outbox, but is not sent since it does not show up in the sent box. Is this a POP issue? Thanks
Re: I have Verizon FIOS, but I want to be able to use...
First you need to configure your outlook incoming mail server and outgoing mail server normally you can get it from your isp provider for verizon normally it is incoming.verizon.net for incoming server and for outgoig it is outgoing.verizon.net

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.
For that you need to import it in 1 file. Open outlook express then go to file menu then import ->address book. Then save it to desktop then you can export in microsoft outlook with that file. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
I have put details of copying over addresses and the emails for both Outlook express and Outlook.Hope this helps.
In Outlook Express, select File --> Export and select Address book. I recommend that you use a comma-separated values (CSV) format as it's more portable and can be recovered if something happens since it's just a basic text file. Copy that onto the new computer, choose File --> Import, and select the CSV file. That should do it!
Backing up email is more difficult, however.
Here's the basic process in Outlook Express: Under Tools --> Options, click the "maintenance" tab. This will tell you where your email is stored. Now copy all of those files onto your new computer (if you make a CDROM you'll have a nice permanent backup too) and then put them in the exact same folder on the new system (while you aren't running Outlook Express). Restart the app and you should have all your mailboxes intact.
Outlook does have an appropriate archive/restore function too, if you want to try that instead. Under File, select Import/Export. Select "export to a file," then select the mailbox that you want to back up. If your mailboxes are like mine, this will produce a fairly large file, depending on the size of your mailbox. Copy these exported files onto the new computer, then use File --> Import/Export --> Import from a file and you should have the mailboxes on your new system. Outlook
You'll have to export the Address Book from the computer then import it into Outlook on the new computer
1) On your desktop click File --> Export --> Address Book 2) Select the Comma Seperated Values (Windows) as your output format 3) Select the folder you want to export - in this case Contacts 4) Type a name for your file - example: addresses 5) Be sure there is a checkmark next to Export then click Finish
This is the important part: You'll need to copy or save the file to a flash drive or floppy. Alternatively, you can email the file to yourself or burn on CD if you don't have a floppy or flash drive available. Either way the file needs to be transfered to your new laptop.
1) On your laptop open Outlook and click File --> Import --> Import from another file or program (this varies depending on your version of Outlook) 2) Select Comma Seperated Values (Windows) - the same option you selected when you exported 3) Click Browse to retrieve the file you exported 4) Choose either replace, not to duplicate or duplicate under the options menu 5) Select destination folder - since this is your address book you would click Contacts 6) Be sure there is a checkmark next to Import then click Finish
You may find your data files are still on the disk and only the program files have been removed. You should try and find your data files and make a back up of them before you try and restore outlook express.
Once you get Outlook Express working again you should be able to restore the data files.
There is a great description here about how outlook express stores it's data. As usual Microsoft seem to have gone out of their way to make it complicated where other products just have a file or two.
Read the article and perhaps do a bit of googling on your own and I think you will figure it out.
You probably are using a POP3 mail client like outlook or incredimail or the like.
You'll need to change the profile IN that mail client. Relatively simple to do. The information is INCOMING.VERIZON.NET and OUTGOING.VERIZON.NET.
If you had DSL service with them previously then it may be that your screenname was NOT scrubbed across into the FIOS network. In this case you'll need to contact the tech support people (good luck) and ask them to scrub your old id across.
To check to see if the s/n (screenname) was deleted. Go to verizon.net and attempt to login there. If your e-mail pops up then your s/n exists and it's merely the pop3 mail client settings that are botched.
I think the problem is from your sender. Is the message sent from a personnel email address or from a corporate address? I asked because where I worked, we could make rules to send messages and sometimes those rules were causing that type of problem.
Outlook Express - no software included with Palm devices but There is third-party software to synchronize the email and Windows Address Book from Outlook Express to Palm OS devices.
