      Re: sky smtp problems

      iirc You have to be on your Sky connection to use smtp.sky.com

      Unhappy Re: sky smtp problems

      does that mean that I have to find out the smtp address of wherever I happen to be at the time? I have my own domain name that I use and always want to send using that address.

      I use this company - http://easily.co.uk/- it's cheap, reliable and it really doesn't matter who your ISP is - and you can access it from anywhere you have web access!!

      Then I would suggest that you are a perfect candidate for using google apps. See my signature for a link.

      Don't tie yourself to your ISP's email system

      Re: sky smtp problems

      My mail is configured to the standard mail. I can't send any mail!!!!!!!!!
      ARRGHHHHHH...

      Error Message as this:

      This message could not be delivered and will remain in your Outbox until it can be delivered.

      Verify that you have addressed this message correctly. Check your SMTP server settings in Mail Preferences and verify any advanced settings with your system administrator.





      Any ideas...this appears to be a big problem for macs!

      Cheers Alan

      You can sign up for Google mail and then associate your Sky email address with Google. You can then send mail via Google but the reply-to will be your Sky email address.
