BellSouth LLC developed BellSouth email services; it is an American Telecommunications company, formerly known as BellSouth Corporation. BellSouth LLC launched this email service to ease the emailing experience for its users. Later in 2005, AT&T comprised BellSouth after the US Department of Justice forced the American Telephone & Telegraph Company to divest itself to its regional telephone companies. Since then, BellSouth and AT&T have been sharing the platform and generating significant popularity amongst the users.
