      Problem setting SMTP up on a second netbook/laptop

      Hi All
      Been using SMTP Skyuser for a couple of years now - all good :-)
      I recently tried to set up SMTP on another of my laptops using my same email address (a netbook actually via MS outlook on windows 7) and it won't let me get past the username and password stage on the SMTP settings? Keeps coming up as if either the username or password is incorrect?
      Does it only work from one specific laptop per username or should I be OK or is it something else?
      Any advice gratefully accepted?
      Steve

      It will work on any machine you want it, you must be using the wrong details.

      Pretty sure I have seen a contact us over this, Glenn will probably resend the info for you.

      Hi Glenn

      Many thanks for sending me my correct password!

      For some reason I had it down wrong! Doh!

      My fault entirely, my email now set up on my other netbook, so all good :-)

      Many thanks once again

      Cheers
      Steve
