      POP3 Email Settings for Freeserve

      My current BB ISP allows me to receive mail into Outlook 2003 from my Freeserve email account that I've had for years and want to continue to use. This works alongside my current ISP email account without problems.

      Will I be able to do the same with Sky BB?

      My email settings for Freeserve are:-
      Incoming mail server (POP3) = pop.freeserve.com
      Outgoing mail server (SMTP) = smtp2.uk4dsl.co.uk

      Could Sky settings for Freeserve be:-
      Incoming mail server (POP3) = pop.freeserve.com
      Outgoing mail server (SMTP) = smtp.sky.com

      Re: POP3 Email Settings for Freeserve

      Your basically collecting from your freeserve and sending from sky.
      This will work.

      As long as you configure the smtp in outlook to log on with a different password you can do this. You may have to configure both accounts and then be subjective though.
