      I would like to suggest you learn to be a little more articulate and rely a little less on the text speak and gutter language if you want help on this forum.

      First bit of advice is to stop swearing and acting like a general plonker.

      To be charitable to the fella ......

      Next, Sky BB works fine with different mail services. So it is most likely to be something in your config, which is what the Sky CSTs have probably been advising you. Perhaps if all you heard was "blah blah" then you may not have been listening properly

      Seeing as you are only complaining about the email is it safe to presume that everything else is working?

      Check and re-check your SMTP server settings, it will be something as silly as an incorrect port number or likewise.

      Do let us know how you get on - but cut the Sweary Mary stuff.

      Sky BB isn't great, but I'm not aware of anything that's better.
