Bellsouth Email Problems

Common causes of the email problems:

1. Authentication and login error 

  • The error occurs when you enter the incorrect username and password.
  • In case you are logging in from an email client, the error appears when the app is denied access.

2. Incorrect mail server configuration

  • When you find that you are not receiving emails and are not able to send emails from your account, the server configuration might be incorrect.
  • Check if you have given the correct port numbers and server address.

3. The email server is down

  • High traffic in the server can create a block and slow down the server function.
  • When the server is down, you cannot send or receive the emails.

4. Email client application

If you are using an outdated email client app, the emails may not sync on your email account.
