      Re: Problem with SMTP at the moment? try "smtp1.pri.skybb.uk.easynet.net"

      I've posted this elsewhere - try "smtp1.pri.skybb.uk.easynet.net" for outgoing mail setting


      Re: email unable to send try "smtp1.pri.skybb.uk.easynet.net"

      -----------------------------------------------------------------------

      I had trouble sending email the last 2 days, but on playing with settings got this in an error message following setup of "smtp.sky.com"

      "An unknown error has occurred. Subject 'sky testicles', Account: 'pop.sky.com', Server: 'smtp.sky.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '421 smtp1.pri.skybb.uk.easynet.net Unexpected failure, please try later - closing connection.', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 421, Error Number: 0x800CCC67"

      So I used this setting with send setting and it Worked!!
      Both outlook 2000 and express!

      smtp1.pri.skybb.uk.easynet.net

      I guess easynet must provide sky's email services and have problem as I have had "smtp.sky.com" working in the past.

      Perhaps other users might try this and feedback?

      Same message as before. really beyond a joke now, probably don't want to get it fixed over weekend because it costs more.

      Well eyemdee, you were right, the messages came flooding back, "Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender", I guess this sky broadband and email is just crap, I've had bother since day one, either connection problems or email problems.
