      Forwarding mail received at the Sky portal

      Sky will send any emails concerning my broadband account to an email address that is only going to be set up on the Sky portal.

      Is there any way of automatically forwarding emails received on the Sky portal on to another non-Sky email address ?

      Re: Forwarding mail received at the Sky portal

      Just set up an account on Outlook Express for your Sky email.
      You can then forward them.

      1. Open Outlook Express, click Tools then select Accounts
      2. Click the Mail tab, then click Add and select Mail
      3. The wizard will start. Type in your name then click Next
      4. Enter your email address then click Next
      5. Leave the My Incoming Mail Server is a POP3 Server drop down box as POP3. In Incoming Mail Server enter: pop.sky.com (all lowercase, no spaces). In Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server enter: smtp.sky.com (all lowercase, no spaces).
      6. In the Account Name Box enter the first part of your @sky.com email address (everything before the @ sign). In the Password Box, enter the password for your @sky.com email account, then click Next.
      7. Click Finish
      8. To complete the account creation process click Tools then select Accounts
      9. Click the Mail tab, then click Properties
      10. Click the My server requires authentication box to place a tick inside. Click OK
      11. Repeat the above process for each mail account you want to set up, including sub accounts. Each sub account will have a different email address and password. If you're having trouble sending email from Outlook Express (or other email software), it may mean you need to switch on SMTP authentication.

      You can do this with GMail as it will allow you to check other pop3 accounts and send the mail to wherever you want.
