How to Check My BellSouth E-Mail Log-In on My Email Account

By Jim Campbell

Your Bellsouth email account settings can be configured to forward your email to an alternate address, allowing you to check your messages from another account. The preferences are set in the online email interface provided by Bellsouth when you sign up for the DSL service. All incoming email will be forwarded to the designated address, so you don’t need to log in to your Bellsouth account to read your messages.

Step 1

Open a Web browser and log in to your Bellsouth email account. Click the "Preferences" link in the left navigation panel.

Step 2

Click the "Rules" tab link at the top of the window. Type your alternate email address in the "Forwarding Addresses" text box.

Step 3

Check the "Forward and keep a copy" option to save a copy of each forwarded message in your Bellsouth inbox. If you want to clear the message from your Bellsouth inbox after it has been forwarded, click "Forward, then discard" instead.

Step 4

Click "Save Settings" to complete the Bellsouth email setup.
