Yahoo POP e-mail Problems

  1. I am having a SERIOUS problem with my Yahoo account that no one has been able to help me with. A while back, I added a POP account (my BellSouth e-mail address) to Yahoo. And to make a very very long story short, even though I have deleted the BellSouth address off of the Yahoo POP mail, EVERY e-mail that is sent to my BellSouth address is still sent to my Yahoo inbox. I no longer receive ANY e-mails to BellSouth. I could maybe understand if e-mails were still being sent to both places, but no -- They are ALL being sent to Yahoo. Every BellSouth e-mail I receive gets forwarded to my Yahoo inbox and doesn't even pass by BellSouth anymore.
    CAN SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT I AM DOING WRONG??? :mad:

    Unless yahoo aquired an mx record for your BellSouth (highly unlikely), BellSouth is simply forwarding the email from their servers. You'll have to contact BellSouth if you need that changed.
