A number of Bellsouth email users have been bellyaching about SMTP errors they are facing when using Bellsouth DSL. The problem is not confined to any particular region, but people using this email in all parts of the world are facing it. Let us find out what SMTP error is and how it can be solved.
Many Bellsouth email users are facing the problem in the discussion, and there is no denying the fact that it is one of the most frustrating issues that has engulfed Bellsouth up till now.
As of now, no troubleshooting steps have been found out, which users can follow to fix the issue. If you too are facing the issue, then let’s find out how it can be solved.
People have described the occurrence of the issue, and the story of every user is quite similar to other. One user said that ‘he was about to send emails from his email client, then he changed the SMTP server in order to match it with that supported by Bellsouth server.
This particular process is difficult itself, but the worst part is yet to come. When he tried to send emails from SMTP server, then he had to register on Bellsouth, but it was locked down already.
He then changed the SMTP server to the original value thinking it would fix the problem, but that didn’t happen. He saw an error message on the screen, i.e., ‘unable to accept sender email addresses’, which is quite annoying.
So, he logged into their Bellsouth email account and added ‘my sender mail addresses’. After that, he verified his name, which is a unique step, but that is how emails can be sent via SMTP from another place where the person is staying.
This fixes the issue for a short duration of time, but the problem will return to haunt him. The problem is fixed because there isn’t any other using Bellsouth email at the same time. In case, there is any visitor at home and they are also using SMTP to send emails from PCs, then the problem will appear again.
Then, it will be very difficult to deal with the problem. The problem can be fixed by following below-mentioned steps:
- The details of the right Bellsouth email settings need to be given to authenticate the email.
- Users need to add their email address and verify those email address with Bellsouth server.
With this, the problem is going to be solved, but in case, it is not, then you will have to get in touch with Bellsouth email help and support facility. You can also try to change the port from 2525 to something else, but that won’t do any good.
If you think that whether you should stay with the same DSL or change it to some other DSL, then there is no reason to change your DSL, so stay with the one that you are using. If the problem is not being solved despite trying all the possible steps, then you can consider changing the DSL.
