    My ISP is verizon.net.
    I successfully setup outgoing using "outgoing.verizon.net" as the server and "SMTP" as server type.

    I cannot get the receiving end correctly set up.
    In Outlook, it is POP/SMTP
    In evolution, my choice is POP only and I get an error message
    "Error while Fetching Mail.
    Unable to connect to POP server incoming.verizon.net: No support for requested authentication mechanism."

    If I try IMAP, ther Evolution scans folders for awhile and then times out.

    I'd appreciate any help thatI can get.
    Thank you
    Wharf

      im guessing verizon prob uses authentication. Do you know for sure if they make you authenticate to use there smtp. I use sbc yahoo for my smtp service, and they make me use the setting to authenticate, then put in ur username and pass that u normally use for POP login credentials.
      hope this helps.
