  1. Harry,

    What did you end up doing in regards to Verizon disabling the ability to use their outgoing email server to send emails with a non-verizon email? I have the same issue.

    1. They pretty much left we with nothing I can do. I’m still GETTING email, just can’t send any out, and Verizon is not going to let me send email from my domain.

      Right now I’m reviewing some email services. Of course most require a fee, they average $10 to $15 per month, which is not for me. There are a few free ones, which I may try first. One of the free ones is actually Google: https://www.siteground.com/kb/google_free_smtp_server/

      TurboSMTP (http://www.serversmtp.com/en) also offers a free service for up to 6000 emails a month (way more than I need). I actually signed up for an account there, but it’s not activated yet.

      One I’m looking at right now only charges $10 per year, which seems okay to me:

      Anyway, I’ll post on my home page when I’ve settled on something and have it all set up. Thanks for your interest.

  2. Update:

    I had to give up on TurboSMTP. They have an automated system to set up an account. It rejected my registration – twice for “not meeting our terms of service”. I emailed them back, and they couldn’t tell my why, but suggested I try again, which I did, and again it was rejected. So I gave up on them.
