      Recent Sky changes & using your own domain

      I have my own domain which up till a while ago I was using it's incoming mail server and address for my mail and Sky's outgoing server. However, I understand that recently Sky made some changes to it's outgoing servers so that nly sky email addresses could be used. Is this right? Is there a way to still use a non-sky email address in mail/outlook etc or will I have to change from Sky?

      Thanks!

      I use Thunderbird for all my email as it allows you to select just one outgoing mail server to use for all your mail accounts so I don't need to use the Sky one.

      I use Opera for my own domain emails (POP and SMTP) and it's no problem when connected via Sky Broadband. And Opera allows any number of incoming and outgoing email servers, you just select the account you want to use when composing the email.
