i cant get my bellsouth.net incoming mail or outgoing. had to set up my computer ater losing everything what do i put for my incoming mail server(pop, imap, http incoming mail pop, imap or http outgoing mail smtp server


Im assuming you are using outlook express, if not, I apologize, but steps should be similar for other types of software:

  1. On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
  2. Click Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next.
  3. Click POP3, and then click Next.
  4. Under User Information, do the following:
    1. In the Your Name box, type your full name the way that you want it to appear to other people.
    2. In the E-mail Address box, type your e-mail user name, followed by @bellsouth.net.
  5. Under Server Information, do the following:
    1. In the Incoming mail server (POP3) box, type mail.bellsouth.net.
    2. In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box, type mail.bellsouth.net.
  6. Under Logon Information, do the following:
    1. In the User Name box, type your full e-mail address, including the @bellsouth.net domain.
    2. In the Password box, type your password.
    3. Select the Remember password check box.
Note You have the option to have Outlook remember your password by typing it in the Password box and selecting the Remember password check box. Having Outlook remember your password means that you won't have to type your password each time you access the account; however, it also means that the account is vulnerable to anyone who has access to your computer.
  1. To verify that your account is working, click Test Account Settings. If there is missing or incorrect information, such as your password, you are prompted to supply or correct it. Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.
  2. Click More Settings.
  3. On the General tab, under Mail Account, type BellSouth.net.
  4. Click the Outgoing Server tab, and then select the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication check box.
  5. Select Use same settings as my incoming mail server, and then click OK.
  6. Click Next, and then click Finish.
Notes
  • Do not select the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) check box.
  • Unless specified by BellSouth.net, all server and address entries are typed in lowercase letters.
Good Luck!

i cant receive my emails


You can't receive emails? You need to give more information. Are you using a Web mail (i.e. Yahoo mail, Gmail) or are you using an e-mail client (i.e. Outlook 2003/2007; Outlook Express)?

Email clients uses two types of account, POP3 and IMAP.

If you are using an e-mail client like Outlook 2003, you need to change the incoming mail server. Please follow the steps below:

For Outlook 2003/2007:

1. Open your Outlook and then click on Tools.
2. Go to Accounts or Email Accounts.
3. Go to Mail tab and you will see the account that you have created (like pop.gmail.com or imap.gmail.com)
4. Double-click on pop or imap account and then go to Advanced tab.
5. You will see the Incoming Mail server.

By default, the incoming mail server is set to 110, you may change it to 995 and then select SSL. Then close and reopen your Outlook and click the Send/Receive button.

Now, if you're just using a Web e-mail like Gmail or Yahoo mail, you need to check your storage. There's a possibility that you reached the quota storage of your email that's why you are not receiving emails. You need to contact your email provider for this problem.

If you have a router on your network, you need to check the router settings and perform a Port Forwarding. You have to open the port 110 or 995 so that you could receive e-mails.

These are the things that you need to check and consider.

Have a great day!

connecting my email to outlook express


Hi
Outlook Express doesn't accept web based email anymore.

I recommend Outlook 2007. You will also need to install the outlook connector to be able to do it.

Right now Outlook supports Hotmail web email addresses only.

In Outlook click on TOOLS and then ACCOUNT SETTINGS.
Click on NEW and choose the Microsoft Exchange,POP3, IMAP or HTTP.
Then just follow the On-Screen Instructions.
Don't tick the box where it says Manually configure server settings

cheers
