    Sending Mail with Bellsouth

    I was wondering if anyone has been able to send mail using their bellsouth account. I can receive mail fine, but it gives me invalid recipient every time I try to send. Mail sends fine using my gmail account. I have tried the auto-setup and set it up manually. I have to authenticate to the outgoing mail server and to not. I just setting up my gmail account as the outgoing mail server, but then the reply to address is the gmail account instead of the bellsouth one? I am trying the, but no luck yet.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Bellsouth restricts SMTP connections (outbound mail) to being on their network. So, basically, you can access Bellsouth's incoming mail server ( outside of Bellsouth's network, but cannot access Bellsouth's outgoing mail server ( from anywhere but.

    What I've done successfully is use the incoming, and utilize another service I pay for as outgoing.

    Are you using for the login and the password you set up on vtext for the outgoing server?

    box and add a new username and password instead?

You will need to change your current Outgoing Mail Settings (SMTP settings) to the "" address, along with the username and password you registered with at the website.
    To register for a Vtext account, please follow the steps we have outlined below.
    1. Navigate to "" and select "Join Up!"
    2. Enter your 10 digit mobile number.
    3. In approximately 30 seconds, you will receive a 10-character, alphanumeric password on your handset. Enter this under step #2 at the Vtext site.
    4. Enter and re-enter a personal password and click "Save."
    You are required to sign up for a Vtext account, to use the username and the password within your SMTP e-mail settings.
