    Any way to reset the MS account server (for email) to its default, or maybe to find out what it is? I accidentally changed it, and I need it changed back to the default one to avoid factory resetting my phone.

    I got an email from Verizon saying that I had to change my server for all my devices that use Microsoft's email clients. I did that, but I forgot that changing the server of my Microsoft account is very frowned upon. For some reason, MS will not let me change my email server to something "third-party", e.g. pop.verizon.net. So, when I tried that, my MS account would not sync, even though my email is @verizon.net.

    So now I'm kind of stuck. I tried to change my email's server, but now my email won't sync. I tried getting my server back by going onto the mobile site for hotmail/outlook and copy/pasting the URL that shows up. That worked, but now my MS account shows up as "not up-to-date", saying it can't connect to the server.

    Any ideas on how to get the default server URL back? I don't want to factory reset my phone to restore it.
