    Does anyone else not get yahoo email in there verizon account inbox. I made a purchase at a place who has yahoo.com email and I am not getting there email and I can't even send myself an email from yahoo.com to my verizon inbox. Does anyone know what this is about.

    While I have no personal experience with Verizon, I can almost assure you that it's about anti-spam techniques used by large ISP's to filter a glut of inbound mail. I have constant issues with mail to/from Hotmail and my regular ISP. If it's something important, I make sure it's Hotmail-to-Hotmail, Yahoo-to-Yahoo, etc.

    thanks for your response

    It would be difficult to be able to determine what email someone is going to use for support before placing an order online. And I certainly can't possibly have email accounts at all of them. Verizon does have somekind of yahoo portal email for there new subscribers. I however have had it so long I have the older incoming.verizon.net server account.

    Don't use Verizon. Their e-mail technology a decade behind. Their SPAM "filtering" is a sad joke and it is so freaking slow and clunky.

    When's your birthday? We'll buy you Yahoo Plus.

    I just changed over from Verizon to Comcast yesterday. Verizon was always screwing up my Yahoo e-mail so I made a habit of accessing it via Yahoo only, completely ignoring the Verizon Yahoo e-mail box (you have the choice of using regular Yahoo or Verizon Yahoo at the top of the e-mail page.)

    I find MSN to be very unstable.
    I wasn't happy with the previous version of Yahoo so I up dated it a few days ago.
    It will be interesting to see if it's more reliable than the last one.

    Forget Verizon's (or any other commercial network carrier) email system...go with Gmail.

    I never have any problem receiving mail from any of the other free providers (hotmail/msn, yahoo, etc), and I haven't had any problems with my emails going out, either.

    You can also use POP3 clients (like Thunderbird, Evolution, or Outlook/Express) to check your Gmail account.
