How to add the BellSouth account to Outlook
  • On the Outlook Express toolbar menu, you would find the Set up a mail account option. This would take you to a number of other options, among which you need to choose Create a new Internet mail account. Here, you would find the Display option – you need to give here the name you want displayed on your outgoing mails.
  • Then you would find the option that says I already have an email account that I would like to use. Now, enter your email address for the BellSouth account in the Email Address field and fill in the other details for setting up the account using the details you collected from the BellSouth mail network website.
  • These details would include the email account type (which would be POP3), the incoming and the outgoing mail server addresses for the BellSouth email service.
  • Once you have entered these details, you would be required to enter the username and password for the BellSouth email account. Only if all the above-mentioned details are entered correctly will the Outlook client be able to connect to the BellSouth mail server.
  • You can use the Remember my password option in the Outlook mail client so that you do not have to enter the password every time you log in.
  • This completes the email account setup process in Outlook Express, and you can exit from the account setup wizard by pressing on the Finish button.
