How Do I Transfer My Bellsouth Email to Yahoo?

By T.J. Cunningham

When Bellsouth was acquired by AT&T, customers were still able to keep their old Bellsouth email accounts. However, switching to the Yahoo! email service provides users with more storage than a Bellsouth account. Yahoo! email also offers many additional features including photosharing and the ability to connect apps to your Yahoo! email account. If you have an old Bellsouth email account that you would like to transfer to Yahoo!, don't panic. You can do this easily and quickly through your Bellsouth email account.
