      Sky Imap login failing

      in the last hour Sky Imap feature has been having login failures, I have not changed any smtp settings in any of my email programs.

      My mail washer program keeps trying to accees the imap server, and its giving timeout errors, no response from server.

      my Pop peeper program gives the error Login Error[system error failure]

      and Thunderbird keeps asking for my password, I enter correct password, and then it tells me login to imap.tools.sky.com failed.

      What is going on??

      Yep it happens now and then, google have to sort something and it knocks the POP/ IMAP servers out of whack while its being done.
