I've tried this suggestion. Thanks to everyone, but IE still crashes/is blocked. Very bizarre.
But when I use Safari, my name is now populated in the upper left corner. But I still cannot receive a test message. here are my settings.
First, I turned off DHCP on the TV, so I have a static IP address of 192.168.1.xx. Is that wrong? Should I leave DHCP on? If so, won't the IP address change everytime I reboot something??
Next, I go to the web control system and enter the following:
Sender Address: my verizon POP email address (email@example.com)
Mail server (SMTP): For this I have to explain. I am on a Mac on which I can run Windows under VM Fusion. I went into Windows, went into the command mode (Run|cmd) and typed ping outgoing.verizon.net. This returned a specific value of 206.46.232.xx. That is the number that I entered as the mail server (SMTP)
Verizon requires authentication, so I clicked "On", typed in my verizon username, and my verizon account password.
In case I'm wrong, i've also tried no authentication as well.
The only other field I filled in was "Received address (1)" in which I typed the same email address that I typed in the Sender Address (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I then clicked "Test Mail" (for both when I used authentication and when I didn't), and I have not received the test mail at all. What am I doing wrong.
Thanks and happy new year.
