I had to find my Verizon FIOS Email address so that my Synology NAS’ can send out notification email.
Finding the generic SMTP settings was fairly easy with the help of Google:
But what the heck is my actual address?!?! it’s not my Verizon login name, tried that and failed.
I cannot believe I had to go through this stupidity, but here are the steps I went through to discover my Verizon Email address. None of the documents or web services showed the actual address.
1. Log in to “My Verizon” at https://www.verizon.com/foryourhome/myaccount/pr/dashboard/details .
2. Click the link that says “Your Email”
3. Send an email to your gmail address.
Total idiocy, right?
My username is ‘rqbanXXX’ to log into the site, but my email address is vze1elXXXX@verizon.net . Why don’t they give us the option to choose an intelligible username?
