How To Configure Bellsouth Email Settings?

Bellsouth Email Settings

Bellsouth is an email service that provides access to its email accounts using both IMAP and POP so that a Bellsouth email account can be accessed from any third-party email client or mobile phone apps. While accessing the Bellsouth webmail might be easier, which requires just the email address and password, setting up the email account on an email client is not more straightforward, as in other email services like Gmail or Yahoo. To set up a Bellsouth email account on an email client, you have to configure the server settings manually.
