Outlook should configure your ports on its own, but if you need to manually configure them, they are the following:

SMTP Port 25 or 587 (some ISPs are blocking port 25)
SMTP SSL Port 465
POP Port 110
POP SSL Port 995

Hello Tom, and thanks for providing some links for others.

Those would be problems sending mail with Outlook 2000/2002, and change your email settings to use port 465 on Verizon.

Thanks again!
