      I have to say that that post about the servers going down says that "they will close at the end of the month." So in theory they may have gone down due to a fault rather than the planned end of the month closure.

      Unhappy Re: SMTP SkyUser Outgoing Mail Server - is it down?

      Still not working now.

      I realise it's closing at the end of the month anyway, but I hope the plug hasn't been pulled early for some reason!

      Notifications have been posted in this forum and details of the equivalent method provided by sky/yahoo are in the opening post in the closure thread.

      Important notice of closure

      Thanks to Glenn for spending many hours of his own time keeping this free service up and running. Thankfully with sky moving from gmail to yahoo, Glenn can get his evenings back to relaxing and a cheeky drink or two.

      You will need to set your outgoing mail server to "smtp.tools.sky.com".

      If you want your outgoing Sky Yahoo Mail messages to display another one of your email addresses in the From: field, instead of your Sky Yahoo Mail address, follow the instructions in this thread:

      Send an email from another account

      Still not working!

      If the service has just been shut down earlier than was stated in the shutdown notification thread it would be good to have some confirmation of that.

      Re: SMTP SkyUser Outgoing Mail Server - is it down?

      It's not been shut down early to my knowledge. As you know, Glenn maintains the server out of good will. Sometimes he won't have time to immediately fix problems. This is one of the reasons for now ceasing the service. The yahoo mail service achieves the same difference.

      It's back up and running, it was down due to another computer spamming away, just trying to track it down now.

      Thumbs up Re: SMTP SkyUser Outgoing Mail Server - is it down?

      Yes, thanks indeed Glenn.
      Now working again fine.
      I really do hope that it can keep running smoothly now until its official shutdown date, without being taken out by bloody spammers again.
