How To Setup Verizon Smtp Settings?

Verizon is one of the best e-mail service providers that allows you to manage your e-mail account over a network. However, Verizon has stopped its e-mail service on 5 December 2017. Before the shutdown, the Verizon users were offered to move their account to AOL to continue using their existing Verizon account. Since then, users have been using the mail.aol.com or Verizon.yahoo.com (for verizon.net e-mail through Yahoo) page to access their existing account. The below section covers the general Verizon SMTP settings.
