Yup, unlike most email, "mail.bellsouth.net" is used for both the incoming and outgoing.

Cheers.
I tried those servers and it stated that the message can not be sent since server rejected message

Please help I have a businesss and can not send emails

That's odd. Not sure what to tell you - that info came straight off Bellsouth's website. Sorry I couldn't be of more help on this one.

You can try putting mail.Bellsouth.net:587
put your username and password same as incoming. And leave SSL settings (under advanced) however they are already set.

See if that helps ya out...

The Bellsouth smtp server will only accept connections from bellsouth.net-connected users. If you're not connected to a bellsouth.net hosted wifi the connection will fail. If you're connected to the internet via the EDGE connection, you have to use some other smtp server such as AT&T's or gmail.

This is why I suggested what I did in my reply above. Sometimes they WILL allow outgoing mail from a connection other than their own through port 587 with authentication. I only know because it works with my provider, and I believe comcast people have had success with it as well.

Bellsouth has different names for which ever city you are in. example, I'm in Atlanta so my mail server is "mail.atl.bellsouth.net" if you are in another city you need to add it. google it and see if you can find the mail server for your area.
