      Same thing happened to me & for 2 others i've read about so far...

      You're expecting to be redirected somewhere for a more official acceptance of the new terms & conditions right?

      Doesn't happen.
      I'm assured everything's ok though.

      Try logging in here: https://login.yahoo.com/config/login...k&.src=ym&rl=1
      You have to include the '@sky.com' bit after your sky id, for your yahoo id.

      I wonder if it is a sign of things to come that when I log into Yahoo mail I already have 129 spam messages.

      As an aside I read in one of the links about Yahoo security that you should enable SSL which is not done by default. To do this click on the cog link top right of the mail page, choose Mail options, scroll to the bottom and tick the box, click Save.

      Yahoo servers have been hacked - there is currently lots of spam going round at Yahoo towers.

      Sky said the user did not have to do anything. I have asked, still waiting for reply,what do I do with the 6400 emails that was downloaded to Thunderbird

      Re: Important changes from Sky

      Sky are aware of the issue and have identified the cause. Unfortunately there is no way they can tell which emails were deleted or moved elsewhere. This is annoying and unfortunately the techs have concluded that there is nothing suitably practical which they could do to prevent this.

      What I would strongly recommend is the use of 'Rules' to filter your messages into different folders. Below is one such example:

      Important changes from Sky-email-rule.jpg

      I am sure that Thunderbird will have this facility.

      The rules can be applied after you have downloaded your messages. Most importantly, any new emails will automatically be placed in their respective folders.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps
      Previous ADSL2+ Speed 19999 kbps 1153 kbps, Line Attenuation 17.5 db 6.9 db, Noise Margin 7.5 dB 8.7 dB

      Re: Important changes from Sky

      what do I do with the 6400 emails that was downloaded to Thunderbird
      If you had your Sky mail set up to keep a copy on the server, which I think was the default, all these emails will be downloaded. All you can do is delete the ones you don't want and empty your trash or deleted emails folder to get rid of them permanently. A quick way to do this is to set up a Rule as Scubbie suggests, but set it up for the age of the mail. Something like the following-

      Important changes from Sky-messagerules.jpg

      You can make the day number anything you like. But make sure you are not going to delete anything you want to keep. When set up, run the rule manually.
