Comment on attachment 744847 [details] Updated ISPDB entry for verizon.net Hi moz-bugz, in the future you should make sure to request review from an actual person, so it doesn't get lost. Unfortunately there are no 'suggested reviewers' for this component so you have to dig through similar bug to find one. Blake, you seem to have reviewed many patches in this component, can you have a look? Please redirect if your not an appropriate reviewer.
The old servers POP SSL incoming.verizon.net 995 supports encrypted passwords. The new server does not. The old server still works. I see no reason to change.
Current live config: https://autoconfig.thunderbird.net/v1.1/verizon.net

Basically a "soft" r- unless you have a reason to publish this or want to override me, I wanted to give you a chance to utter your opinion, not outright block it.
So, this is somewhat off topic, but, wow, verizon is messed up. From https://www.verizon.com/ForYourHome/VZRepair/vziha/Service.aspx?ihaweb=EmailAccountsAndSettings (noting that I am a logged-in Verizon FIOS customer): Verizon customers can have four different types of Email Accounts: Verizon.net Online Email Account Verizon Yahoo! Mail Account Verizon AOL Mail Account Verizon Online MSN Premium Account I was figuring there had to be IMAP support since a family member of mine has a Verizon Yahoo account, and yahoo does provide IMAP. It appears new customers (post March 27, 2010) can only get verizon.net POP3 e-mail accounts; as a recent customer I have one by default and when I created a test account, I had no choice of other providers to use, and Yahoo's Verizon branding did not recognize my credentials. And as how it relates to this bug. It's my understanding that Thunderbird's autoconfig will try the entries it finds in the order it finds them. I would propose we do the following: - Add the Yahoo Verizon mapping for IMAP as something to try. Details at http://www.verizon.com/support/residential/internet/fiosinternet/email/setup+and+use/questionsone/128217.htm - Do not change the mapping per Ben's reasoning. The default verizon e-mail account has the same credentials/is the same account as the Verizon account management stuff which allows access to bills, some personal details, etc. CRAM-MD5's protection of the credentials is a good thing. == Extra details pop.verizon.net CAPA: TOP PIPELINING UIDL RESP-CODES AUTH-RESP-CODE USER SASL PLAIN IMPLEMENTATION MMP-7.4p23.01 Aug 10 2011 incoming.verizon.net CAPA: TOP PIPELINING UIDL RESP-CODES AUTH-RESP-CODE USER SASL CRAM-MD5 PLAIN IMPLEMENTATION MMP-7.4p23.01 Aug 10 2011

I don't know how much longer the incoming.verizon.net and outgoing.verizon.net servers will continue to work. Verizon has been sending emails to people who are still using those servers. From the http://my.verizon.com/central/vzc.portal?_nfpb=true&_pageLabel=vzc_help_announcement page, you can view the announcements on 1/29/13, 6/6/13, 6/13/13, and 10/24/13, where Verizon is telling users to switch to the pop.verizon.net and smtp.verizon.net servers. An idea has been submitted to Verizon to have encrypted passwords enabled on pop.verizon.net. See http://forums.verizon.com/t5/Share-Your-Ideas-with-Verizon/Enable-encrypted-passwords-on-pop-verizon-net/idi-p/669411 . Maybe if enough people vote for it, it will get implemented.
(In reply to moz-bugz from comment #10) > Verizon has been sending > emails to people who are still using those servers. Specific outreach like that sounds like a reason to make the change, then! It does seem unlikely anyone would go through the effort to contact users specifically if they weren't serious about it. (Although it would be nicer if they were at the same time telling the users to transition to using IMAP too...!)
+1 Let's make the change and please file a followup advocacy bug to make them re-enable encrypted passwords.
Comment on attachment 744847 [details] Updated ISPDB entry for verizon.net Sounds like a good plan to me. Thanks, Blake.
