      SMTP SkyUser Outgoing Mail Server - is it down?

      Morning! Just trying to send some emails this morning and it seems the SkyUser Outgoing mail server is down? Are other people having the same issues? Is there anyone around who could reboot the server?

      Thanks!

      Hi, just found the post to say the SMTP Outgoing Server is to close, so this may be the reason it is down at the moment. Really appreciate this amazing free service and will very much miss it when its gone Many thanks to all those who have maintained it over the years!

      I have sent a message to SatDish to ensure that he is aware. Hopefully he will be able to check it over soon. Otherwise it might not be until this evening.

      Are they shutting the server off?? Nooooooooooo!!!! :-(

      I use this as well, and it's a great service. Will be extremely sad if they are turning it off. Can anybody point me towards the thread/post that said it was to be turned off?

      ARGH!!! This service was fab for those with non-Sky accounts :-( If anyone knows of anywhere else that has an SMTP outgoing server to use, I'd be grateful if you posted it!! ;-)

      Thanks Scubbie. I'll have a look and see if it will let me achieve what I need. I normally use a domain name along with a gmail account for my mail. I use a different SMTP server to try and hide my gmail account identity. If I just use gmail's own SMTP, it sends the mail ok, but sends it out as "on behalf of" my domain name, and also gives away my normally hidden gmail address as well.

      @Scubbie

      Mission accomplished. Email once again working exactly as required, but now using the sky/yahoo SMTP server instead of the Skyuser SMTP server. Worst thing is going round all the PCs, laptops, iPads, iPhones, iTouches etc. and changing all the settings, lol!
