  • If your Bellsouth email isn’t working in Outlook, you might be able to fix it by changing your password. This problem can happen with some legacy accounts, and the best way to fix it is to go to Bellsouth’s website and change your password.

  6. Select Create secure mail key from the drop-down menu. Copy the secure mail key to the clipboard by clicking the Copy secure mail key to the clipboard button.
  7. Click the OK button.
  8. All you have to do now is go into Outlook and change your password to the secure mail key. After then, see if the issue has been resolved.
