I have tried this and this does not work. I have additional complications as I use the outgoing server as info@magnoliaphotography.co.uk on behalf of my sky.com email as set in my sky.com email settings (as additional account) this all works fine on windows microsoft outlook but sky is rejecting my email address when trying to send as in the main window its stated (info@magnoliaphotography.co.uk) not my sky one, but this is the same for outlook and that works fine.
