[Vision2020] Frontier (was Verizon) DSL

Hi Kit,

Unfortunately, what email settings you need to set up seems to depend on
what part of Frontier's Web site you wind up at!

What is Frontier's incoming mail server?

What is Frontier's outgoing mail server?

Other areas in Frontier's Web site set for Moscow, ID 83843 show Verizon's
settings being used:

I'm not sure, but it looks like perhaps Frontier isn't blocking outbound
port 25?

Interesting about your client -- we've not heard anything more about the
email migration, so your report is the first local one I've heard of someone
actually being migrated.  Can you find out if the notification process was
as sucky as it sounded (one week notice, and logon credentials &
instructions not send until the actual day)?  One of the complaints I've
heard from other areas is about the lack of advance notice, so I'm wondering
if it's really going to be as bad as it sounds.  It doesn't matter much to
me since I quit using Verizon's email addy over a year ago, but my dh is
pretty annoyed about having to change his email addy.

Today I was trying to migrate a client's email access from Verizon to
Frontier. It took forever to load the initial page. Glancing at the adddress
bar, I noticed it was set to a directory at "Zimby.com".  
After several minutes with nothing loading, the URL switched to Frontier and
eventually the log in page popped up.

Any body know what "Zimby" is and why it should do an invisible load before
one's email is accessible?

Also, anybody know the incoming and outgoing addresses so I can set up
computer (not web) based mail programs (Outlook, mac Mail, etc). I haven't
been able to pry that info out of Frontier.
