I think it may be more the mail server, I cannot get to any of Bellsouth's sites including mail via pop3 or webmail....

I would concur with that. Everything related to BS is a no go...even newsgroups.

Must be a huge crash over there.

Yep. Mail service is failing on BS accounts.

I have two other accounts that are coming in just fine.

Lovely.

Just spent an hour on the phone with them. They said it was something on my side. They reset my ports three times.

Scheduled a truck roll for tomorrow, sounds like they need to schedule a truck roll for themselves.

I should have checked here first.

Everything down here in Birmingham. That includes all Bellsouth websites, and their DNS is slower than Christmas. I'm using different DNS just to browse the web.

No DSL connection here in Georgia (near Atlanta); can connect via dialup. Neither bellsouth.net nor fastaccess.com respond to ping.

Is anyone else seeing slow download speeds? I'm on the 6Mb xtreme, normally get 4-6 Mb download speeds. Tonight I'm getting less than 300 Kilobit downloads. Upload speed is normal at about 420 kilobits.

Wondering if whatever outage/issues they're having may be related.

Thanks

Can't connect to dsl. When connected through wireless can't connect to mail servers or bellsouth.net only bellsouth.com available. Too many calls to tech support to get through, just get message to call back later if still need tech support.

DSL is up, here in Huntsville, but no mail service.

Could this be related to the planned DNS change?

More info - download speeds from West Coast, Texas are much closer to normal ~3MB. Servers in NY, GA, DC have the 200 - 300 kb speed.

DSL access ok; Bellsouth site inaccessible. Friend on qwest claims he can access it however. This does sound moreover like a DNS issue.

It's DNS, up here in Asheville, NC. I find that with a non-Bellsouth DNS server, I can get at any non-Bellsouth site. Too bad they are keeping their CSRs in the dark - the one I spoke with said all she could get was an hourglass.

Mail no work. They say there is no big rush to fix it.

Bellsouth stinks

My internet is up, but same as others..no mail or Bellsouth DNS. Luckily I use my own DNS server that doesn't forward to BS DNS Servers.

According to the Helpline (it took 8 calls to get through), they are doing a system upgrade. It would have been nice to have a warning email.
