I have tried all of those variations including mail.XXX.com:587,
smtp.XXX.com:587 and restarting the machine between changes,
unfortunately they have not worked. Originally mail.XXX.com worked
for years before Verizon made the changes Monday. My email server is
at my old ISP that we have used for years. A call to them revealed
that mail.XXX.com is the proper syntax and if the email client needs
port 587 then it resides with the client and the host isp.
On the windows side Eudora 7 and outlook express made the conversion
fine but if tried thunderbird and it exhibits the same problem.
An interesting problem.

That makes sense; there probably is no "smtp.mail.XXX.com"; have you
tried just "smtp.XXX.com"? Or looking up what the setting should be.
The port syntax XXX.YYY.ZZZ:### does work. Our shop runs SMTP on
TCP/21212 and specifying smtp.USUSUS.com:21212 works in evolution.
