      I also note from the FAQ:



      which isn't true, as I've just created an additional user and it's told me, having logged on as the new user, that the mail has to be migrated.

      I DO wish the marketing department at BSkyB would let the systems guys finish testing first before going live. Sigh.

      M.
      Just helped a friend set up a secondary email in Outlook Express - really difficult to get it to work, until we discovered that primary email was still Skymail and secondary was Gmail!

      Friend has had no letter etc, and tools were not working for the secondary email at first!

      Sorted now though!

      Does anyone know if the new Google Email for Sky has adverts on it?

      Yes, it does. Banner (animated) adverts at the top - but the text adverts have vanished. I'd prefer it if it were the other way around myself

      And I guess that movielad is the first person from these parts that has actually had access to it.

      I already use Gmail for my personal emails.

      Does anyone know if there is a mail notifier with sky's version like the one you can get with Gmail that sits in the system tray?

      I should imagine somebody will come up with them in time.

      Google Notifier WILL work with the new Sky Email (powered .. oh forget it) - I've just sent myself a test email and the Notifier worked just fine. I'm using the OS X edition, but I'm sure it'll work with the Windows Notifier too.

      This new service is effectively Google Apps - just branded for Sky - and if a particularly application can support Google Apps, it'll support Sky Email.
