Verizon Email Protocols (IMAP. POP, SMTP) Settings
There are several protocols required to access the emails on the iPhone. Without these, you can not have the emails functioning properly on the iPhone. So, the protocols are IMAP, POP, SMTP. Below find the settings of all protocols one by one.
IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol)
The main aim of this protocol is to fetch the data from the server and display it on the device screen. Settings of it with reference to Verizon email are mentioned below.
- Server– imap.aol.com
- Server Port – 993
- Encryption – SSL
POP (Post Office Protocol)
The majority of the protocol used to fetch the data from the server is IMAP but if you want to use POP, you can give it a try. The main difference between IMAP & POP is that whenever an email is deleted from the device it will also get deleted from the server in case of POP but the same is not true in the case of IMAP as in this, email persists on the server even if it has been deleted from the device.
POP settings for Verizon email are
- Server – pop.verizon.net (For Verizon Yahoo: incoming.yahoo.verizon.net)
- Port– 995
- Encryption – SSL
SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol)
This protocol is responsible for sending and receiving the email and settings of the same are depicted below.
