Verizon wireless SMTP setup
Verizon Wireless' National Access and Broadband Access Services
To utilize SMTP you will need to do the following:
- Change your Outgoing Mail Server to smtp.vzwmail.net. The steps to change the Outgoing Mail Settings will vary by email client. Please refer to your email client provider for instructions on how to change the setting.
- Create a VText.com profile if you do not already have a Verizon Wireless VText.com profile. Visit www.vtext.com from your PC to register for free. A TXT Messaging capable data device or phone is required.
- The credentials to access the send mail server will be the 10-digit mobile number (used on VText.com) @vzwmail.net (i.e. email@example.com) for the user name. For the password use the password established on www.vtext.com.
NOTE: Credentials established on www.vtext.com
may take up to twelve hours before they will work on the Verizon Wireless SMTP server. If your password works on www.vtext.com
but not on the smtp.vzwmail.net server, try again in a couple hours. The Verizon Wireless SMTP server can be accessed from most ISPs (Internet Service Providers) eliminating the need to reconfigure settings when switching between Verizon Wireless and other networks.
