Setting up a Verizon POP3 email account

My friend Wendi called me today about setting up her Verizon POP3 email account. To my surprise I was unable to quickly find any information about setting up a Verizon email account using Google. I ultimately did but the search took awhile. Hopefully, Google will index this entry and people will be able to find these instructions easier than I did.
