Password for mail.bellsouth.net is incorrect

From the time I first set up my email on my iPhone 3GS, I've gotten this error msg.  

 

In trying to fix it, I may have made the problem worse. I don't remember the "mail.bellsouth.net" password.  How do I find it?

 

Even when I was getting this message in the past, I could still send email. I changed my regular email passwords recently, and now I can't send email from my phone. I get mail - just can't send.  What settings do I need to change to be able to send mail from my phone again?

 

Thanks in advance for any help!

Peachekeen,

 

     Welcome to the forum, here is a page for the Apple 3GS email setup to go through and verify everything is set up correctly.

     I found this link for the resetting of forgotten email passwords.
