      Test mails to yourself from your sky account don't get downloaded via pop, it's just the way skoogle works! If you get someone else to send you a test or use another account they should work fine.

      now enter the new password into the outlook details
      Hey presto ???? working strait away recieving and sending no problem
      all i did was to change the password in my sky account saved it and used that in outlook ...for all those who might be still struglling ..give it a try ..you never know ...it just might be a problem with the way the server reconises the password
      good luck guys and girls
      Months after I first tried to get my pop working with outlook express (and given up in dispair) I gave it another go. Tried everything to get it working and nothing worked. I then tried the above and it also failed (and manged to delete my GF's account ) but just before i threw myself off the nearest bridge I thought i'd try the google unlock page again, 'uncatcha' or what ever it's called, which I initially had to do when they first migrated my account but thought i'd give it another shot now i had a new password and hey presto it worked, so if anyone else has gone through the agony I have then maybe try this. The unlock link is below.

      Hi -

      First post having been switched on yesterday :-)

      Have swapped from BT, no nice to feel refreshed. Now I am a mac user, and have been trying to setup the pop email.

      I've been into the Sky Tools and setup pop no problems. But Entourage is struggling (Its Office 2008 for Mac by the way).

      Its giving this message



      Now - I know that the username and password are correct as I can log into the Sky Webmail (aka google) without any problems - so does anybody have any suggestions.

      Thanks

      Rich

      Yup - sure have.

      Have tried with and without that!

      It does seem strange that I can get into Sky/Google ok though!

      Being a P.C. user I don't know anything about Entourage versions, but does this link help at all?

      More Sky Outlook problems

      I was wondering if anyone is having the new problems I've got with Sky and Outlook. Like most I had the problems when they initially changed settings which got sorted but now I'm finding that even though I've only got my Yahoo email set up with Outlook, when I send emails people are receiving them from my Sky email address and not my Yahoo one.

      I think it has something to do with the outgoing servers now having my Sky email and password as part of the authentication. Anyone have any ideas?

      I called Sky and the best they could do is tell me to contact Yahoo.

      Just upgraded to Sky Max, can I get the email to work with Vista - NO ! but all I did was forward all emails (under settings) to me normal gmail account, and downloaded them from their via POP.

      Sky email is google mail which is Gmail. If you can get Gmail to work then you can get sky email to work. Pretty much the same setup just different servers, specific ports for SSL and your full sky email address as the user name. Apart from that remembering to enable POP in the first place via sky.com, email and tools, settings is the main thing that trips people up.

      I too have tried all these settings. I am using outlook 2007. I have never seen smtp in the last part of the seeting up section in advance only none, SSL,TLS,AUTO. I Have tried POP3 and IMAP.
