      This is to prevent open relay. In your mail client, change the outgoing mail server to mail.sky.com for all accounts and they should all then send as well as receive. Good luck.

      PS Ditch CA and purchase NOD32. CA is not as good as you think!

      That leads me onto a question......
      I have had 2 previous ISP's - Wanadoo and NTL. When I have moved to a different ISP my original @ntlworld.com email and now wanadoo.co.uk email still function as in I can recieve emails via those addresses. However it seems that I can no longer send via SMTP using Outlook (I can send from NTL's webmail client though). Is this standard practise by ISP's when customers move to a different ISP?

      Thanks

      Hi Gary and all glad its ok so far ur email question just change all ur accounts smtp servers to skys keep the pop ones as they are and u will be able to send out ok.

      LOL - I work for CA and therefore get the software for free (aren't I lucky!!!). I reserve my right to silence on the "not as good as you think" bit
      In fact my entire security is run by eTrust - Firewall (currently disabled), AV, Anti-Spyware and Anti-Spam.

      I've never heard of NOD32 before - its AV only, is it?
      (Oh and its not free, coz I'm a tight git! )

      @Steve & all other responses re:email.

      Yes, I am working fine with email (sending from OE via Sky). I was just curious as to whether my technical-No-Knowhow had struck again as far as sending from old ISP's was concerned.

      I respect your reasons, as long as you repect mine for slagging it off, bring this post to your bosses attention if you wish!

      It is indeed. but you have already got a very good hardware firewall in your router.

      NOD32 has the best detection record of any anti-virus product on the market, with a record 33 Virus Bulletin 100 percent Awards, and a 92% percent success rate in catching new email borne threats using ThreatSense heuristics.

      @Steve,

      Looks like I'm going to be owing you a beer....1hr 10mins and still going.

      My firewall is still not running - I'll probably start it up in a day or 2. Is that ok from your experience? Sure, if problems start again I'll just go through the process again and never start it up.

      Cheers
      Gary

      I used the Windows XP Firewall found in Security Centre with my previous Broadband ISP. No problem.

      Should I disable this when I get my line activated and switch from dial up to Sky Broadband? This thread indicates to me that as the Sky router has a firewall I do not need another and I will be avoiding conflicts.
