FairPoint E-Mail Issues 

Customers with Verizon e-mail accounts were supposed to be switched over to FairPoint beginning Saturday, but when the switch was made, many customers couldn’t set up new accounts.

FairPoint last year paid $2.3 billion for Verizon’s land lines in Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont. It has 285,000 customers in the three states with Verizon e-mail addresses.
