OK, after sharing your frustrations for awhile, I set up a gmail account with the ability to send from both of my bellsouth emails. I guess I could receive from them into gmail, but I did not choose that option.

When it asked me the email address, I enter the bellsouth email address, but when it asks for the settings, I use the gmail info: the account name (gmail login address), gmail password and all the port and server settings for gmail.
I opted for manual check of email on these 2 accounts -- since the bellsouth accounts still receive as they arrive on the Pre and now when I send an email, I have the bellsouth sending options from the pulldown of address choices in the upper right.
I have 4 accounts on the Pre, but that is fine with me, I can send and receive from any of my email addresses. Success! I hope this helps!
