      Sky and Windows Live Hotmail POP Mail

      Hi,

      I have recently been informed from Sky that I am now on the new Google hosted email.
      Before this I had my Hotmail account set up to POP my Sky emails with no problems what so ever.
      I have been into the Sky Tools and set up POP Mail and then changed details in the Hotmail POP Mail section but I cannot get my Sky emails to come into Hotmail via the POP function.
      Please can someone give me some help to get the Hotmail POP to function again?

      Thanks in advance for any help,
      Robert.

      I've given up, for the moment, trying to get POP mail to work and set up mail forwarding to my Hotmail account instead. This works great, so far.

      Have you considered setting up a Gmail account (or Hotmail but I have never used that) and getting it to fetch your Sky mail and then setting it up so it then forwards your Sky mail onto your mail client. All you would need to enter in Outlook is Gmail server details and you would always have a handy back up of all your mails.

      Re: Sky and Windows Live Hotmail POP Mail

      I know there is an issue with Windows Live emails (hotmail) as every time I try and send an email to a hotmail account from my sky account I get a snotty bounce message from MS saying that this IP range is blocked as I am a spammer.

      Looks like MS doesn't recognise sky as an ISP and so are blocking certain traffic, I have no idea if this is why you are having problems but it may be somewhere to start.
