Fix Email (Software)
There are several reasons your email may not be working. Review the following scenarios and solutions below.
I can't send or receive email
You can troubleshoot your email using a step-by-step or automatic solution.
Most issues can be solved by answering a few questions:
Are your email settings correct?
Did you update your outbound port setting to 465?
- Is your user name and password correct?
- Did you temporarily disable any security software? Security software can occasionally prevent a successful email software setup. To avoid any security issues, don't forget to enable your security software after you complete your email setup.

I can view email in Outlook but not in Message Center or Webmail
Your Outlook email settings may be setup to automatically remove email from the Verizon server once you download and view email in Outlook. Anytime you open email messages, they are downloaded to that computer, removed from the Verizon server -- and not accessible from any other computer or via the Web.

My emails are being deleted automatically
Most often, email messages are automatically deleted because they were filtered by a spam or an email address blocking filter.
