      Important notice of closure

      As from the end of this month Wednesday the 30th April 2014 the Skyuser SMTP service will close.

      the reasosn for this are...

      1. No longer needed since Sky moved to Yahoo mail Send an email from another account
      2. It is constantly being misused which takes up to much of everyones time.

      Skyuser would like to thank all the users who have used this service and kept within our T&C's.

      Re: Important notice of closure

      I wonder how many of those who never frequent the forum will be posting 'My email isn't working' after the end of the month. Are you able to advise the SMTP users by email that the service is ceasing? If not, I can see the forum being swamped with complaints from those who only joined to get a free service and never even bothered to post.

      Thumbs up Re: Important notice of closure

      I came here because the SMTP server didn't appear to be working, and saw that it's soon closing anyway!
      Thanks Glenn for setting it up and maintaining it for all these years.
      It may not be necessary now, but for a very long time it was a boon to the people who needed it.
      It wasn't taken for granted, at least not by me.
      Thanks again.
      Cheers,
      Dave.

      Re: Important notice of closure

      I would also like to express my thanks.

      The smtp server was a godsend when the original changes took place and those of us with our own domain names were up the creek without the proverbial paddle!

      Thanks again.

      Nigel.

      Re: Important notice of closure

      I'll add my thanks Glenn for 5 years of help sending 3rd party emails via Sky internet. It has been much appreciated and I've used the forum as well. Just need to set up my mail somewhere else now.
      All the best

      Yeah, it's a real pain in the posterior.

      .....I'm sorry SatDish feels this way.....I feel even more sorry for myself.



      .....but I warmly thank you guys for the invaluable service you have provided over the years.


      I might even come back.
