    OK, as I mentioned in my original post I got it to work by using smtp.aol.com instead of smtp.verizon.net. Now (Tuesday evening) it has reverted back, and smtp.verizon.net now works, but smtp.aol.com doesn't. Weird, but this is AOL. Are we having fun yet?

    When I try to send from Thunderbird I now get "Login to server smtp.verizon.net with username ghristwd failed." This worked until a few hours ago. I changed to smtp.aol.com and that seems to work. Have you abandoned smtp.verizon.net or is this a temporary failure?

    I have been asking for this ever since they changed things to prevent us from turning off the spam filter.

    THEY JUST DON'T CARE!!!

    I would dump AOL in a minute if I didn't have to change my verizon.net address in a zillion places.

    This was initially possible when Verizon dumped our email service onto AOL. When the function disappeared I went through a frustrating exchange with an AOL rep asking to have it restored. The person either didn't seem to know what I was talking about or was intentionally playing dumb to make me go away (successfully). This is extremely annoying for those of us who use a POP email client instead of AOL's lame web interface. I don't get that many emails in my spam folder, but lately more of them have been not spam than spam. Having any at all makes me go onto the web mail interface for no other reason than to check for legitimate messages in the spam folder.
