Do you want to change your Bellsouth email login to the Gmail account login? If yes, then here’s a quick guide for you. Pay kind attention to this guide. You will come to know about the different steps to transfer the account from Bellsouth to Google account servers.
If you are currently using a Bellsouth email account and want to change it to a Google account due to some problem or reason, then you need to check the date of creation of your Bellsouth email account first. If it has been created before 2011, then you can easily transfer it, otherwise, you won’t. We all know that POP3 servers and SMTP servers are required for transfer which you won’t get in the accounts created after 2011. The steps to transfer the Bellsouth net email login to Google are discussed here as under:
- Log in to the Google account from the Chrome browser by entering the login details and tapping on ‘settings’.
- Go to the ‘POP3’ option and click on ‘Add a new account’.
- Now, you need to enter the login details of your Bellsouth email account and click on the ‘Next’ option. Enter the password carefully in the next box.
- Now, you will be prompted to enter the port number and inbound.att.net settings in the next couple of fields. Enter ‘995’ in the port number box.

In case of support and help, you can contact BellSouth customer service executives. They will guide you properly. Otherwise, you will find the server name and port number on the home page. Enter them directly and configure them on the client program.
All the security features must be turned off while transferring the account from one program to another.
