As at 00:51 Friday 13th, Sky Email still seems to be down - Here are some suggestions to help you get back up and running, until it is eventually resolved

 

Update: This issue has now been resolved.

Reports about Sky's Email service, provided by Google started appearing on our forums yesterday evening. By about 8:30pm - 2150 guests and members were viewing our website.

It was fairly obvious that there was a problem, and that people were unable to send or receive emails, whilst using Sky's Email service.

We have put together a few tips to help you get back up and running, until this issue is sorted out.

Using Sky Webmail

If you want to access your email online, instead of going to the normal Sky Website, mail.tools.sky.com, use this link:
http://mail.google.com/a/sky.com

 

If you are using an Email Client, ie Outlook, Outlook Express, etc Try the following:

Use Google's domain instead of Sky's and it should then work for you.


eg. in your email client, change pop.tools.sky.com to pop.googlemail.com
And instead of smtp.tools.sky.com use smtp.googlemail.com

This is not an official fix, just one that seems to work. Please remember to revert back to your original settings once normal Sky Email service is resumed.

If you need any further help or advice, feel free to post in our forums.

I have had difficulty with having a good signal for months, now i find i can't read my emails. I have tried the google address this also doesn't seem to work. I didn't know people had been having difficulties with receiving thier emails for all these months. Come on SKY, DON'T YOU THINK YOU MAKE ENOUGH MONEY TO HAVE SOLVED THE PROBLEM LONG BEFORE NOW!!!!! I'M THINKING SERIOUSLY OF GOING ELSE WHERE WITH MY MONEY AND HAVING A BETTER SERVICE
