How to Change My Homepage to Verizon Email

By Aksana Nikolai

Verizon customers have the option of using Verizon's web-based email client. Allowing users to manage their email messages from anywhere, the client features 2GB of storage, drag-and-drop technology, spam filters and virus protection. Users who use the service may want to set the homepage of their web browser to the Verizon email page. As a result, the Verizon email site will be the first one that users see each time they launch their browser.
