HowTo Make a Bellsouth Email

by Matthew Fortuna

AT&T South, the southern U.S. branch of the massive AT&T telecommunications company, was formally known and is often still referred to as BellSouth. Setting up a BellSouth email account requires that you are a customer and subscriber and have purchased its internet services. Making a BellSouth email account can be set up with any kind of email provider, including Express, Vista and Outlook, and can be done by entering your personal BellSouth account information.

Find the "Set Up a Mail Account" tab in your e-mail provider.

Type the name you would like to display when using your BellSouth email address into the tab labeled "Display Name."

Click "Next" and enter the email address that was assigned to you or that you created after changing your assigned name, into the tab labeled "E-mail address." This e-mail will be your e-mail name followed by "@bellsouth.net."

Select "Next" and choose "POP3" as the incoming mail server.

Enter "mail.bellsouth.net" into both the incoming and outgoing mail-server fields.

Click "Next," and enter your display name again into the "Account Name" field and enter a password. Click "Next" and "Finish" and your BellSouth e-mail account will be setup.
