      For the time being, we are manually activating new members who sign up with an @sky.com email address and a Sky IP address.

      Obviously you cannot get your activation email, and so now you should be able to start posting straight away, if you have arrived here looking for some help or to ask any questions.

      Hi there

      Obviously I have the same issue as everyone else

      I used the settings the previous poster suggested (below) and can now send and receive email perfectly, so thanks for that!

      The solution is just to use Google's domain instead of Sky's and it works fine.
      So instead of pop.tools.sky.com use pop.googlemail.com
      And instead of smtp.tools.sky.com use smtp.googlemail.com

      Yes - all you need to change is the actual server name, the port settings are the same.

      I have just contacted sky 08442410515 and been informed they know there is a problem with their sky e-mail and will probably not be fixed until sometime tomorrow.
