      The port settings should be the same as you used before. Sky Mail is having problems at the moment, you may be being effected by that.
      There is currently an issue with Sky Email

      Re: SMTP settings for BB Playbook

      thanks for your reply.
      My desktop uses and has always used skyusermail and that works fine still. I don't have the old settings for my old BB playbook as I have sent it to be repaired and have no access to them to cross reference.
      I am trying to set up a mirror email account on my new BB playbook using a private email host which worked before but doesn't work now.
      my outgoing server is mail.skyusermail.com with the port set at 25.
      what am i doing wrong as this set up worked last week.

      thanks in anticipation

      Does it work on a PC?

      I will move this to the right forum for you.

      Doh, just read that it works fine on the PC

      As long as you are using the same details ie username and password as the PC then I cannot see why it doesn't work.

      Port 25 should just work.

      We haven't touched nothing.
