      GMail has the option to download from a pop3 account these days.

      Go to Settings->Accounts->Add another mail account

      and go from there

      Re: sky.com email

      I do this myself, set up an Outlook Express account to receive your Sky e-mails and then set Outlook to forward them to your gmail account.

      1. Open Outlook Express, click Tools then select Accounts
      2. Click the Mail tab, then click Add and select Mail
      3. The wizard will start. Type in your name then click Next
      4. Enter your email address then click Next
      5. Leave the My Incoming Mail Server is a POP3 Server drop down box as POP3. In Incoming Mail Server enter: pop.sky.com (all lowercase, no spaces). In Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server enter: smtp.sky.com (all lowercase, no spaces).
      6. In the Account Name Box enter the first part of your @sky.com email address (everything before the @ sign). In the Password Box, enter the password for your @sky.com email account, then click Next.
      7. Click Finish
      8. To complete the acount creation process click Tools then select Accounts
      9. Click the Mail tab, then click Properties
      10. Click the My server requires authentication box to place a tick inside. Click OK
      11. Repeat the above process for each mail account you want to set up, including sub accounts. Each sub account will have a different email address and password. If you're having trouble sending email from Outlook Express (or other email software), it may mean you need to switch on SMTP authentication.


      To forward from Outlook express go to Tools, Message rules, mail and set up a new rule to forward your messages.

      Re: sky.com email

      The problem with the Outlook solution is that you still have to setup the email anyway so it kind of defeats the object of not having the account set up on your machine.

      The gmail solution is a great idea, although it still relies on gmail sucking the email over rather than sky actually forwarding it to you so you have to use gmail as your email service or set up an elaborate forwarding system to send it to your proper email account - best solution!

      thank you, this is perfect.

      Can I just say how awful the Sky Broadband Email Portal is? I have nothing but problems with it and now thanks to Gmail, I will never have to use it again

      Hi, hadn't realised that I could collect messages directly using gmail.
      Tried it and its a great solution for old accounts.

      Thanks.
