      Google Mail on it's way for Sky Broadband User's

      It looks like the move to Google Mail for Sky Customers is about to start.

      Looking at the Tools Page, this has now changed from the message we were all seeing, telling us that we are too early.

      On logging into the portal now, I get the following message,

      Hello. You've come to the right place for new Sky Email and Tools, but you're a little bit early. We're upgrading everyone in stages to make sure we do it securely. Your upgrade hasn't happened quite yet but you can still carry on using your original email service and getting your emails by logging onto Sky Broadband - Home. Rest assured we'll switch you soon and we'll let you know the minute it's done.

      New Questions and Answers added to the Sky Portal:

      http://mysky.sky.com/portal/site/sky...tentid=1133910

      You can check if you have the new Sky Email by accessing it via sky.com/tools. If you already have it, you'll see a live summary view of your inbox. If you still don't have it, you'll be redirected to Skybroadband.com to access the original Sky Email. In that case, don't worry, we're gradually upgrading the original Sky Email for all existing customers, so you'll be upgraded to the new Sky Email in due time.

      Please click here for more info about your original Sky Email.
      The enhanced Sky Email has 10 Gigabytes of storage and with so much in your inbox, the search technology powered by Google means you’ll locate messages easily. On top of that, all of your emails are displayed as Conversations, which means that all replies to an email are grouped together in one place making your inbox easier to manage. Now Sky Email is easier to use, easier to search and works seamlessly with Sky Chat, Sky Contacts and Sky Calendar.

      Hi,
      Pardon my ignorance if i have missed something. I have been happily accessing my email on sky using POP3 with Pegasus. It appears from the new Q & A that i will have to alter my settings to continue using POP3. Presumably i will be advised by email in advance of having to alter my settings.

      It is indeed kamvip, I use Gmail and have it fetch my Sky mail so it stops the spam (which is all I seem to get) from getting to my inbox on my computer after I have it forwarded on to me.

      Re: Google Mail on it's way for Sky Broadband User's

      Yup ... I've been redirecting my e-mail for quite some time via Googlemail - actually since I started with sky, seeing as Sky seems to have no spam filters whatsoever in place. It will certainly be good news when this arrives - although I'll still be keeping my separate googlemail account on as well, as a backup if Sky's fails.

      Although thinking about that ... will sky be using Googlemails servers? Or will they be using their own?

      Not sure for certain but I would have thought this will be using Google's mail servers.
