Re: question about Verizon email services

Blaster
 

I got the e-mail last week and jumped through all of the hoops to save
my Verizon.net e-mail accounts. The good news is the AOL webmail
interface is much more screen reader friendly. The down side for me
was wrestling with the Verizon webmail interface. The screen layout
is a little jumbled so go all the way through each page to be sure
your not missing anything. Admittedly, I've always had trouble with
that website, so I'm not sorry to see it go away.

Here's what I did:

Login to your account with this link:

https://webmail.verizon.com/signin/login.jsp

The first screen asks for your login name.

The second one wants your password, and like I said go through the
whole page before you click continue.

I had a captcha screen pop up above and sometimes below the continue button.
A couple of times I got a security challenge question, very skitzofrinic.

Whenyou get logged in click on the "All mail" link and you'll be
presented with your two e-mail transfer options.
Switch to AOL and keep your Verizon.net account with all of your mail,
contacts, address book, ect. Or, create an account with any e-mail
provider and move it all by yourself manually.

I clicked on the button to use the AOL option and was taken directly
to the AOL login page, which had some of my information already
pre-filled into the form. There's a pull-down menu with an option to
choose which e-mail address your transferring, but what you'll find is
your actual address and an alpha numeric equivalent, I chose the
actual e-mail name and it was the right choice.

At the end of the form you'll need to either put in your cell phone
number to receive a numeric password or you can use your home phone
and receive a call with a pre-recorded voice that tells you your
numeric number. It's a lot easier then a captcha, that's for sure.

after that you'll need to set up your account with a new password,
your birthday and a security question.

If you use a mail program like Outlook than you'll need to change your
account settings.

Your username is your full Verizon e-mail address, like "yourname@...".
Your password is what ever you created during the setup.

Incoming Mail Server: imap.aol.com (Use port 143 for standard or 993
for SSL connections) POP is also still supported.

SMTP Outgoing Server Address: smtp.aol.com Set the port to 587

For a secure connection, check the SSL option for IMAP/POP and TLS for
SMTP in your mail program.

HTH,
Blaster

affected with a link that enables you to keep your domain while support
is transferred to AOL.

I am getting questions from folks on Verizon about them changing
something or doing away with their email servicing for private
customers. I am not on that system so I have no personal information
on this matter. If anybody out there does please let me know what if
anything is going to change along with what the average person needs

For the record, Outlook Express can import and export to EML files, but it is not the format it uses for storing messages.  It stores messages in DBX files.

Hi Vicky & John,
 
There's a free program called EML Viewer that supposed to allow someone to read this type of email since Outlook Express uses the, .eml, file extension.  Info is below:
Website / Link:
 
Documentation:
 
Version 1.7
Updated 02/13/2013
FREE
PROGRAM FEATURES
 ceml is a free eml / nws file viewer. Neither Windows 7 nor Windows 8 come with a program capable of reading eml or nws files (message files from Microsoft
email programs Outlook Express, Windows Mail and Windows Live Mail). So users of Windows 7 and Windows 8 needn't download an entire suite of programs in
order to read and browse their messages -- they can download this free program instead. This program also works in Windows XP and Windows Vista.
ceml screen shot
 
 If the user browses to a directory of eml / nws files, it will show the list of files in a message list along with the message properties such as Received
date, Subject, To, From, Newsgroups, Size, References, Message_Id and File name for each file. There is also a column labeled "A" which will show the letter
"A" if the message has attachments.
 
 The user can then select the message in the list and it will display in the preview pane below the message. The preview pane can be disabled via the View
menu.
 
 Columns in the message list can be reordered and clicking on a column header will sort by that column in one direction and clicking again will sort in
the other direction. Sorted columns will be prepended with a " ^ " character when sorted ascending and with a " _ " character when sorted descending.
 
The message view is now filtered.  Many email senders use linked images to track recipients, so linked images are now blocked by default and the user can
click the button to enable showing the linked images.  Similarly, dynamic HTML, such as scripting, is also blocked by default.  To enable such dynamic
HTML, the user must first go to View | Enable Full HTML and then the checkbox labeled "Full HTML" will be enabled and the user must also check this box
to show a message with the HTML unfiltered.
 
If the message has attachments, then when then user selects the message and it is displayed, a box with the character "A" inside is displayed in the upper
left of the displayed message. Clicking on this box will display the list of attachments and the size of each attachment as well as a "Save Attachments"
menu item. If the user clicks on the name of an attachment in this list, then the user is prompted to save the attachment in the location the user designates.
If the "Save Attachments" menu item is clicked, the user is prompted for the location to save all the attachments. Note that the File menu also includes
a "Save Attachments" menu choice. When clicked, the user is then prompted and the attachments are saved to the designated location. This option also saves
embedded images as well as attachments, even if the message does not have attachments listed. Also with this option, one can choose to Save Attachments
for all messages selected in the list at one time.
 
The File menu includes Page Setup, Print, and Print Preview features. The program inserts the abbreviated message header (From, To, Subject, Date) at the
top of the first page.
 
 Double clicking the message in the message list will result in the message opening in its own resizable window.
 
 If one presses the key combination CTRL-F3 (or View | Message Source) the message source will display a separate window.
 
 The key combination CTRL-F2 (View | Message HTML) will display the HTML source of the message (or the plain text one if there is no HTML).
 
 NOTE: If one clicks on a single eml or nws file, one can choose the program with which to open the file.  If one browses to "c:\program files\ceml\ceml.exe"
then one can set ceml as the program with which to open the file and then set it as the default program to open eml and nws files.  The command line
 
"c:\program files\ceml.exe" "%1" 
 
will also open the file where %1 represents the path to a given eml or nws file.  Note that there is a space between the quoted path and the "%1".
FREEWARE
 This software only reads files and does not alter them. However, the author makes no guarantees as to this software and the user, upon downloading and
executing it, does so at his own risk.
 
 ceml is free. It may not be sold or used for promotional purposes.  DO NOT DISTRIBUTE!  Rather reference this page so that users may acquire the latest
version of the software from its source.

Hi Vicky,

 

The fact that you are not using OE complicates things somewhat, especially relating to the ‘manual’ conversion. To manually convert you would need to have OE installed and also install Windows Live Mail. While OE is a Microsoft product, it is in no way compatible with MS Outlook and Outlook will not import OE emails directly. The manual process requires importing OE mail into Live Mail and then exporting to a PST file. There are, as Gene mentioned, 3rd party software vendors that provide DBX to PST converters which is the most effective means of converting.

 

As a matter of interest, how did you extract the files/emails you say you have in a folder, which were originally in Outlook Express?

1.       Are you intending to import emails currently listed and being used in Outlook Express?

2.       Which version of Microsoft Outlook are you intending to use, 2010, 2013 or 2016?

3.       Will Microsoft Outlook be installed on the same machine as Outlook Express or a different machine?

Hi Everyone,

I am currently using Outlook 2007, and I just don’t like it maybe because of all the whistles and bells that seem to come along with the program.  I was talking to MS sometime last year about email programs, and they told me MS doesn’t support Outlook 07 anymore, I asked them about me using Windows Live Mail, and they said MS doesn’t support that either.  Do you know if this is true? MS wanted me to purchase Outlook 2016, but I just don’t want Outlook as an email client anymore.  I will adventually find an email program without all the whistles and bells though.

I just checked.  Outlook used to support EML but that changed at some point.  I haven't done enough checking to see how to work around the problem or perhaps convert the files to the format Outlook works with. 

 

But the discussion raises another question.  Outlook Express isn't supposed to be used beyond XP.  There is a version that has been altered so that it can be.  Some people use it without problems and some people have problems.  But is there any particular reason why you want to use Outlook?  Is it coming with the computer?  You can use Windows Live Mail or Thunderbirrd and they are both free.  I know that Windows Live Mail uses EML.  I don't know about Thunderbird but I would expect it to.  It's a widely used format. 

 

If you want to read eml files in Outlook, I may have more information about that in a later message.

EML is a widely used e-mail format.  I would be very surprised if Outlook doesn't use it or work with it.  If it is your default e-mail program, pressing enter on any saved message in that format should cause it to open in the program. 

 

Just so you know, you have a lot of other choices than Outlook Express.  Windows Live Mail uses the format, and I would think e-mail programs do in general.

I am currently using Outlook Express on my desktop computer. I have saved, over the years, many e-mails in folders on the computer in the .eml format.

 

I want to use Outlook 2010 on my laptop, so I wanted to be sure that I could open those files using that program on my laptop. It seems as though I cannot.

 

My other option is to install Outlook Express on my laptop. I thought Outlook might be a more stable program, although I don't have too many issues that I can't deal with using Outlook Express, more just irritating ones. I was hoping to avoid those.

a "Save Attachments" menu choice. When clicked, the user is then prompted and the attachments are saved to the designated location. This option also saves
embedded images as well as attachments, even if the message does not have attachments listed. Also with this option, one can choose to Save Attachments
for all messages selected in the list at one time.
 
The File menu includes Page Setup, Print, and Print Preview features. The program inserts the abbreviated message header (From, To, Subject, Date) at the
top of the first page.
 
 Double clicking the message in the message list will result in the message opening in its own resizable window.
 
 If one presses the key combination CTRL-F3 (or View | Message Source) the message source will display a separate window.
 
 The key combination CTRL-F2 (View | Message HTML) will display the HTML source of the message (or the plain text one if there is no HTML).
 
 NOTE: If one clicks on a single eml or nws file, one can choose the program with which to open the file.  If one browses to "c:\program files\ceml\ceml.exe"
then one can set ceml as the program with which to open the file and then set it as the default program to open eml and nws files.  The command line
 
"c:\program files\ceml.exe" "%1" 
 
will also open the file where %1 represents the path to a given eml or nws file.  Note that there is a space between the quoted path and the "%1".

Hi Vicky,

 

The fact that you are not using OE complicates things somewhat, especially relating to the ‘manual’ conversion. To manually convert you would need to have OE installed and also install Windows Live Mail. While OE is a Microsoft product, it is in no way compatible with MS Outlook and Outlook will not import OE emails directly. The manual process requires importing OE mail into Live Mail and then exporting to a PST file. There are, as Gene mentioned, 3rd party software vendors that provide DBX to PST converters which is the most effective means of converting.

 

As a matter of interest, how did you extract the files/emails you say you have in a folder, which were originally in Outlook Express?

 

John.

Verizon is indeed ending its email service, but is offering customers with a "verizon.net" account to have support transferred over to AOL, while maintaining their "verizon.net" domain.  This is verified by my call to Verizon tonight.  There was supposed to be an email sent to all affected with a link that enables you to keep your domain while support is transferred to AOL.

I am currently using Outlook 2007, and I just don’t like it maybe because of all the whistles and bells that seem to come along with the program.  I was talking to MS sometime last year about email programs, and they told me MS doesn’t support Outlook 07 anymore, I asked them about me using Windows Live Mail, and they said MS doesn’t support that either.  Do you know if this is true? MS wanted me to purchase Outlook 2016, but I just don’t want Outlook as an email client anymore.  I will adventually find an email program without all the whistles and bells though.

e-mails have a .eml extension, and Outlook e-mails
have another extension, will I be able to open, read
and access the links, etc., in my saved Outlook
Express e-mails with the Outlook program?



Thanks.



Vicki

Re: question on reading e-mails

Janet Gross
 

Hi Everyone,

I am currently using Outlook 2007, and I just don’t like it maybe because of all the whistles and bells that seem to come along with the program.  I was talking to MS sometime last year about email programs, and they told me MS doesn’t support Outlook 07 anymore, I asked them about me using Windows Live Mail, and they said MS doesn’t support that either.  Do you know if this is true? MS wanted me to purchase Outlook 2016, but I just don’t want Outlook as an email client anymore.  I will adventually find an email program without all the whistles and bells though.

I just checked.  Outlook used to support EML but that changed at some point.  I haven't done enough checking to see how to work around the problem or perhaps convert the files to the format Outlook works with. 

 

But the discussion raises another question.  Outlook Express isn't supposed to be used beyond XP.  There is a version that has been altered so that it can be.  Some people use it without problems and some people have problems.  But is there any particular reason why you want to use Outlook?  Is it coming with the computer?  You can use Windows Live Mail or Thunderbirrd and they are both free.  I know that Windows Live Mail uses EML.  I don't know about Thunderbird but I would expect it to.  It's a widely used format. 

 

If you want to read eml files in Outlook, I may have more information about that in a later message.

EML is a widely used e-mail format.  I would be very surprised if Outlook doesn't use it or work with it.  If it is your default e-mail program, pressing enter on any saved message in that format should cause it to open in the program. 

 

Just so you know, you have a lot of other choices than Outlook Express.  Windows Live Mail uses the format, and I would think e-mail programs do in general.

I am currently using Outlook Express on my desktop computer. I have saved, over the years, many e-mails in folders on the computer in the .eml format.

 

I want to use Outlook 2010 on my laptop, so I wanted to be sure that I could open those files using that program on my laptop. It seems as though I cannot.

 

My other option is to install Outlook Express on my laptop. I thought Outlook might be a more stable program, although I don't have too many issues that I can't deal with using Outlook Express, more just irritating ones. I was hoping to avoid those.

Hi Vicky,

 

The fact that you are not using OE complicates things somewhat, especially relating to the ‘manual’ conversion. To manually convert you would need to have OE installed and also install Windows Live Mail. While OE is a Microsoft product, it is in no way compatible with MS Outlook and Outlook will not import OE emails directly. The manual process requires importing OE mail into Live Mail and then exporting to a PST file. There are, as Gene mentioned, 3rd party software vendors that provide DBX to PST converters which is the most effective means of converting.

 

As a matter of interest, how did you extract the files/emails you say you have in a folder, which were originally in Outlook Express?

 

John.

Hi Vicky,

 

Are you currently using Outlook Express, or do you just have emails stored in a folder? I can give you step-by-step instructions on how to migrate the old OE emails and import them into Outlook, but first I need to know the following:

 

1.       Are you intending to import emails currently listed and being used in Outlook Express?

2.       Which version of Microsoft Outlook are you intending to use, 2010, 2013 or 2016?

3.       Will Microsoft Outlook be installed on the same machine as Outlook Express or a different machine?

It means that you will first export the messages using the Outlook Express export for messages features and then you will use the Outlook Import feature by highlighting the folder/file where the messages have been exported and then, the messages will be imported into Outlook in the proper format.

Re: question on reading e-mails

Gene
 

Here is an answer from a Microsoft site that provides more information.  The short answer is that for your version of Outlook, you can just make it the default e-mail program and press enter on an EML message. This may not work for some earlier versions, as discussed in this brief excerpt.
 
Gene
It is possible to do this but since support for this in Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 was only introduced after their releases, make sure you have the latest updates installed for Outlook before attempting this registry fix.
Note: Outlook 2010 and later have native support for opening eml-files and also do this by default so no registry fix is needed. If Outlook doesn’t open the eml-file, make sure it is set as the default handler for eml-files.
