      Sending email from a Talktalk email address using Outlook Express on Sky Broadband

      Hi
      I have just changed broadband provider from Talktalk to Sky. I still use Outlook Express for my email and have kept my talktalk email address for the time being. (Both things need 'updating' I know, but all in good time!).

      Outlook express is receiving my email fine, but won't let me send. I know I probably need to tweak some settings, but despite extensive searching I can't find what. Everything refers to having a sky email address, which I havent got - yet. Can anyone help me please? I can go into talktalk webmail FTB but would prefer a more permanent solution.

      Thanks
      Cx

      I don't think you can do much until you have a Sky email address. You can then set it up to send and receive from different email suppliers.

      Alternately you might want to set up a Gmail account, I think that will allow you to do the same. It also has the advantage of not being tied to your broadband account for email. In Gmail go to Settings/Settings/Accounts and Import.
