Verizon Email Transition

by Office Administrator on March 27, 2017

in News, Tech Thoughts and Tips

Verizon email customers have been receiving an email message informing them that Verizon is discontinuing their email service and moving all accounts to AOL. While we can help in your migration to another email provider, it is not necessary to switch to another provider. AOL was acquired by Verizon in 2015, and Verizon will transfer all your Verizon emails and contacts to AOL if you want to keep your current Verizon email address.

If you need help with this transition please contact us and we’ll be glad to help.

If you do decide to switch to another email provider we can help you migrate your mail and set up a temporary forward and an autoreply so that if your contacts email your old address, they will be advised that you have switched.

The Frequently Asked Questions on the Verizon Web site details more information about the transition.

Hi Roberta, Hi Michael.

So if my Verizon email was dalefournier@verizon.net will it now be dalefournier@aol.com?

Thinking I don’t want email with AOL.
Rather use dale@dalefournier.com which I think I have already or gmail. Which I have and never use..

Please advise?
Dale

I made the migration to AOL, keeping my Verizon.net address a long time ago. Now I am getting emails this week from different entities with whom I do business, warning that my Verizon.net address will no longer by valid as of April 28. Is this true? I have received no notification otherwise from AOL or Frontier.

As far as I understand you can keep using the Verizon email address.
