      Outlook Express and Hotmail

      Hi, I have just got Sky internet connection, but I am having a problem in accessing my hotemail plus account through Outlook Express.

      It was working fine at Internet Cafe, so it must be something with Sky.
      If anyone knows how to fix this problem, please let me know!!!
      I use emails for my job, so using a mailer like OE is important for me!

      Is it like I need to download a free SMTP software coz Sky hasn't got it or something?

      Thank you!

      u cant use hotmail in outlook express....unless u pay extra for it. having said that, u might need an update from microsoft for it but its nothing to do with Sky as hotmail/OE are Microsoft products

      He did say he is using Hotmail Plus.

      Have you set the Hotmail account up to access Sky's server. Instructions on how to do this can be found in this section-
