      Are you still having this problem?

      My email is working fine, as well as a few people I know who I have mithered to check.

      The servers should have been brought back online after all the problems.

      /makes note to do a script that we can check in future.

      Why not just get another e-mail address, perhaps with your own domain or use something like Hotmail or Gmail.

      I personally use several gmail email accounts for different purposes as everyday use. Problem is, some companies/businesses have a filter on receiving emails from @hotmail / @gmail addresses, so they bounce back to the sender - for that reason I have to use my ISP email address to ensure they get through. Though I might invest a couple of quid a year for a domain name to use for email, though you shouldn't really have to resort to this.

      Yes, I agree with that .. It would be nice if they had some kind of 'System Status' page when you log in on the Sky Portal, as that's where you'd expect to find something.

      Very true. Would even be nicer if when you called them the person on the other end knew something!

      I have to agree, some kind of system status etc, would be great. However we have asked and asked and asked.

      We would love to have some kind of status page on this website, as when something goes wrong, we get more visitors looking for the information, however we just get told very little.

      Well, keep at them and eventually maybe they'll take notice and think it'll be a good idea

      Even better, as sure most people (myself included) head to SkyUser to find things out.

      As of 5.15pm today (18th June 2007) cannot log in to Sky's Pop3 server - it is refusing all attempts to connect.
