It sounds like you don't have your Windows Mail setup correctly (maybe). I can suggest two things: Verizon should have a place online that shows you how to setup your email. Make sure you've followed that. The other thing to try is: In Windows Mail, select tools, then accounts. Now select your email account then choose properties. Under the Servers tab try checking "My Server Requires Authentication". Hope this helps. I just checked the help section for Verizon and you need to check the "My Server Requires Authentication" box.
I am running Vista Ultimate and am having a problem with my Windows Mail. When I check for new email, I receive (after a period of time) a message that my Pop 3 has timed out. I am offered the opportunity to check a box to wait but the same message comes up again. I am using Verizon for my DSL provider. If I go to Verizon Central and get my email that way it comes right in. After getting email that way, I can go back to Windows Mail and the email comes right in. I even set up another test message and it came through fine. The computer has just started doing this.
I would sure appreciate any and all ideas on how I can correct this problem.
