    When I got BellSouth DSL years ago I had Outlook email account set up with BellSouth as outgoing and old domain as incoming so I could keep my email address from another domain. It worked fine until a year or so ago I had to add another account just for BellSouth and that worked fine.

    Within last few weeks emails from my email address (old domain) would not send. I've been through it with ATT tech several times to no avail.

    It seems that ATT has trapped me out and does not want me to be able to keep my old email.

    There's bound to be a way to set up my email accounts so my outgoing email from my other ISP provider will send through BellSouth without changing my very old and reliable email address.

    Also, I recently have acquired my own domain name and I fear emails from that email address will suffer the same fate.

    I hope this is not too long, but PLEASE HELP if you can.

    If your BellSouth e-mail service is provided by Yahoo, then you probably need to go through a registration and authentication process for each e-mail address you want to send through a non BellSouth/Yahoo mail server. At least that is what I had to go through as an SBC/ATT DSL customer. They claim that they do the blocking to prevent from originating from users within their network.

    EDIT: Forgetting my manners. Hi and welcome to TSG.
