Bellsouth Pop Server Settings

E-mails are one of the primary sources to establish a professional and personal connection. Since we are used to setting up different e-mail services all in one single go, we won’t know which to consider a priority. The best solution is to configure them in one place for easy management. Since ATT and Outlook are the two major e-mail clients used by IT and other private organizations, we will be looking at the ATT Outlook e-mail settings.

ATT is a webmail program powered by Yahoo. It offers a free e-mail account with one optional plan to manage all your ATT accounts in one place. If you want to sync both ATT and Outlook e-mails, you must configure the ATT e-mail settings in Microsoft Outlook. It offers a lot of benefits; you can also access data and enjoy vast features of Outlook like calendars, contacts, and much more.

With the help of the Bellsouth e-mail settings, you do not have to access the bellsouth.net web interface. You can check and reply to e-mail messages using other e-mail clients like Outlook Express, Apple Mail, Gmail, to name a few. Your e-mail will still be available on your computer even after being disconnected from the computer.

NOTE: ATT acquired Bellsouth in 2006.
