      Is Sky's server down?

      Friday 13th February 2009 - 01:23am
      There still seems to be a problem with Sky's email service. We have no further information, apart from the fact that Sky are aware of this. Please read our latest updates thread, which contains some unofficial fixes, for those of you using an email client as well as Sky's WebMail, to help get you back up and running temporarily.




      I'm connected to the internet and can browse to any site but I can't retrieve my email nor connect to sky.com (sky.com sever can't be found).

      Tried PPPOA test on router settings page and get the failed Error 300 code.

      It's a case of wait and see then I suppose.

      From our banner serving software company

      Sky is currently experiencing technical problems, which are affecting their website and disturbing their online ordering process.

      We are working with the merchant to solve this problem as soon as possible, and expect to have a resolution shortly. We would like to apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause, and will keep you informed of any developments.

      If you have any further questions, please get in touch.

      Kind regards
      Although not immediately related, it is the website that the banners take you too, if you click on them, so I would assume it is all related.
