Verizon fixes glitch that blocked weekend e-mails

Verizon has fixed a software glitch that inadvertently blocked e-mails coming from major Internet service providers over the weekend, a Verizon spokeswoman said on Tuesday. E-mails sent to Verizon.net customers from Yahoo, America Online, MSN, Google, Roadrunner and others were blocked "because of a bug in a spam-filtering software update we were conducting," the spokeswoman said. "Customers whose e-mails were bounced back should resend them." The problem lasted from early Saturday morning through late on Sunday night.
