Bellsouth mail.lig.bellsouth.net server phasing out?



I haven’t had much time to look into this, but one of the mailservers I administer is typically configured to relay through mail.lig.bellsouth.net, with mail.averyjparker.com as a fallback. Sometime overnight, mail.averyjparker.com started getting heavy use and on checking this morning was getting all of the outbound traffic. So, I did a bit of investigation mail.lig.bellsouth.net is no longer found and I’ve switched the configuration to mail.bellsouth.net and all is churning along well.

The bottom line to this is if you’ve been using mail.xxx.bellsouth.net (whether it’s mail.atl.bellsouth.net or mail.lig.bellsouth.net or mail.mia.bellsouth.net etc…) change to mail.bellsouth.net

From what I read at broadband reports the mail.xxx.bellsouth.net addresses are being phased out. I’ve looked at their website but haven’t had time to dig enough to find any information on the phasing out. There was a network status note about mail outage overnight, but NO mention of phasing out of an old mailserver name. Just marketing fluff about the service being to enhance your experience or something….

So, if you’re having bellsouth.net mail problems… check and make sure your program is set to receive messages at mail.bellsouth.net instead of one of the older alternatives.
