Settings for BellSouth Mail for the iPhone

by Maya Walker

The iPhone allows you to set up several email accounts on the phone for access to your emails from any location with an active cellular data or Wi-Fi connection. The emails are accessible through the phone's Mail application. Proper setup of the account even gives you the ability to send email messages from your iPhone. Setup is a one-time occurrence unless you change your BellSouth Mail username or password.
