Tip icon.These steps should be followed only if you've been using a 3rd party email client with POP3 enabled to send and receive Verizon.net email prior to migrating to AOL. If you're not currently using an email client with POP3 enabled, you can set up your Verizon.net AOL Mail account using IMAP.

POP3 lets you access your emails in a 3rd party application. Your messages are downloaded to a single computer or device from a server, then deleted from the server. This means the only copy of your emails are on that specific device.

After migrating your Verizon.net email to AOL Mail, follow the steps below to update your settings based on your email client. Be aware some sections will link to the client's help page, and they can't answer questions about AOL Mail settings, or your Verizon.net username or password.

No matter what application or software you use, the POP sever and port settings will be the same. Just make sure SSL is enabled and you use your full email address, including @verizon.net.
