      collecting email to sky account

      Hi

      I had set up my sky mail to collect mail from my MSN account too so was looking to see why it didnt seem to be doing it and it showed Authentication Error and said "server returned error authentication failed "

      What does this mean and how come apple mail can collect from live account but not sky?

      For some reason I cant get apple mail to work on my macbook , which is another issue how come my sky password works on apple mail to collect mail on iMac, but not on Macbook?

      so have to log into sky and live separately, so want live mail to go to sky too so only have to log into one place.

      Thanks

      Not sure how to resolve your problem but there are lots of help files available in Gmail.

      Get mail from other accounts - Gmail Help

      Re: collecting email to sky account

      Is your email set up as POP or IMAP? You can only use one of these.

      One fix from a year or two ago was to change

      pop.tools.sky.com to pop.googlemail.com
      smtp.tools.sky.com to smtp.googlemail.com
