Verizon was blocking email to Verizon customers and bouncing email from ISPs the world over, as millions of Verizon email customers and those sending email to them were affected over the weekend and beyond when Verizon’s anti-spam spam blocking technology went astray.

As a result of a spam blocking snafu, Verizon wireless began blocking email from mail servers and ISP the world over. In fact, some of you did not receive some of your Internet Patrol alerts because – yep, Verizon was bouncing them (oh, the irony!)


This is not the first time that Verizon has blocked massive amounts of email – not by a long shot. In fact just last week we reported on the settlement of a class action lawsuit against Verizon, for the damage caused to Verizon customer by Verizon’s blocking of email from entire countries.

This time it appears that it really was in error, and that Verizon has been working on it to fix the situation as quickly as possible (in fact we are getting reports that it was resolving as early as Sunday).

So, if you are one of the folks who have been bitten by this, the good news is that Verizon isn’t really blocking your ISP, and you don’t need to do anything about it except count to ten.

  1. Verizon is at it again blocking my email looks like it will send to other email accounts can’t receive anything they tell me that I need to have some type of security five look at my computer files for three or $400 don’t know what’s going on but I think to much anybody have any suggestions
    Looks like my wife subaccount works but my primary doesn’t reply to the above email I should get thanks for your help

  2. I’ve been having the same problem, my emails from the UK are not being delivered (again Verizon) and this has been going on for years, even though Verizon settled a class action lawsuit 5-6 yrs ago. My mother is frustrated as Verizon continues to suggest the problem is elsewhere. I have since been successful sending here email from Google, but what is this ‘big brother’ attitude. I don’t even get a reply that my email was blocked. Looks like they are back to their old tricks.

  3. Emails from friends is currently being blocked I reported this to verizon. They looked at my email and said it should be Ok. It is still being blocked.

  4. I’m having the same problem. I have lots of words about Verizon, still use their cell phone, but not happy. So what do we do, just wait it out?

  5. Verizon just recently started blocking most of the websites I host on my server. It almost seems they are running Class C IP blocks. They have no phone number to contact. They want everyone to email in to their abuse address. I don’t care if they have the most coverage for wireless. They have the worst customer support and I am not even a customer. Maybe if they spent that money on customer support, rather than TV Ads they would be a decent company.

  6. Verizon won’t let me send an email with my daughter’s livejournal link in the message! It keeps coming back with an error message saying it was determined to be spam. Any ideas?

  7. was this on verizon wireless only?It happened to my Verizon (Home Phone/Internet/Direct TV package) I wasn’t getting ANY email at Outlook Express,since April 7,2009,where I normally get alot every day, come to find out,after calling V tech sup, it was being sent to verizon email w/o my permission they had shut down my O.E.that i’ve had for a year. HOWEVER, only a cpl came thru to V.Email,and for only a cpl days…then I was w/o ANY email again from Ver.or O.E. I went thru hell until 2 days ago May 6th, when finally all of my emails from 4/8/ to present, came spurting out together, and all of them in double! I don’t understand it at all, but when I suggested I should get some kind of a reimbursement (cause,also, my Games on Demand have not been accessable to me usually 2 times a week for the last year and once for a whole week!) They emailed me back asking me to make a copy of my files (the ones you get when you click run then msinfo32), and send them to them,cause they’re trying to blame my computer…they said no one else is having this problem. Anyone else having a similar prob? I’m so frustrated! I pay them alot every month!

  8. What is wrong with VERIZON??? I get bombarded with SPAM regularly. Now VERIZON is blocking my outgoing messages and saying that it is SPAM. IT IS NOT SPAM. HOW in the hell do they stay in business being so inept?

  9. no he podido enviar correo ni contestar los correos que me envian,gracias por su colaboracion.atte. Rosa Ceballos-

  10. What irritates me is that I can send cell phone pictures from my Verizon cell phone to Gmail just find, but not to my verizon email address. WHY?! I’m paying for both!

  11. I get enough junk mail on my email; now I also get it on my phone. How can I block junk mail on my phone?

  12. I am unable to send messages to the following address. snurse at verizon.net It keeps getting bounced back to my mailbox. What can I do?

  13. This is the wrong way around – Verizon should be working to block OUTGOING spam. Roughly 65% of spam I receive comes from Verizon. It’s sick.
