      It appears that whatever the problem was with the Sky/Yahoo smtp server has been resolved.

      There is a message on the Sky site to the effect that there is a problem with the Sky mail servers. Advice is to log in direct via www.yahoo.com with the sky username and password.

      Re: Sky Mail and Skyusermail smtp not sending

      Any reason why the mail.skyusermail.com smtp doesn't work for me? It has in the past. My username and password are correct. With regards to the Sky/Yahoo mail, logging in to www.yahoo.com takes me direct to my Sky email account which when I try to send an email tells me my account is locked!

      A few weeks ago Ged took the decision to close the SkyUser SMTP Server.

      If you haven't used your sky.com email address for more than 6 months, then it gets locked. I don't know if you can contact Sky to get it enabled again or if you need to set up a new address.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro: Connected at 80,000 kbps / 20,000 kbps

      Re: Sky Mail and Skyusermail smtp not sending

      Thanks I wasn't aware that mail.skyusermail.com had closed. It's a pity but many thanks to the guys for providing it in the first place. Apparently Sky are aware of a problem;

      "Sky Yahoo! Mail
      We are aware of an issue affecting Customer's access to the Sky Yahoo! Email service.
      We are working tirelessly in order to resolve the issue and restore full service.
      In the interim you can access your Sky Yahoo! Mail account direct via :
      www.yahoo.com
      To access your account enter your full Sky Email address (including @sky.com) and your associated Password
      We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will provide an update as soon as possible."

      The smtp was working last night so that can't be my problem. Just have to sit it out.
