      Setup Sky in Outlook Express ??

      Hi

      Just gone on-line with my new Sky BB and have been trying to set up emails with Outlook Express.
      Unfortunately I cannot get it to accept my password.
      I had a temp password given to me in a letter, which I got into the Sky home page with (which I have now changed for a personal one).

      Is this supposed to be the password I use when I set-up the email account in OE, or is there one I've missed?
      Rang the help line and after trying to understand what he was saying, managed to realise he was talking me through what I'd already done. He then said "It must be a fault with Outlook and to contact Microsoft"
      Never had a problem with OE b/4 the change over to Sky.

      Hope this message makes sense, it's all "Greek" to me.

      Thanks for any help.

      Bob.

      Thanks for the reply newsreader.

      I've sorted it out now.
      The password I was using was correct, it was the login name I had wrong. Duh!!!

      I guess I'm one of those idiots in your signature.
