      Re: New Sky Email SMTP and POP Settings (powered by Google)

      After seeing a post in another thread I have put all my settings back to the original (ie pop.sly.com, smtp.sky.com, Ports 110 and 25) and guess what.... email now works absolutely fine and dandy!!!

      So if you can't get the new settings to work try the old again!!

      The weird thing is that the old settings didn't work, the new ones nearly did, but when I changed back they old ones did! No idea why, but I blame Sky - they botched their first attempt at web mail and they it is just as bad second time round.

      Rubbish really - it detracts from superb connection which is blazingly fast at a good price.

      Somewhere in this thread it recommends loging into your sky account and going to tools and checking the box for pop3 ? (well something like that?)

      I logged into my sky account anda pparently its not available ? I get this meassage

      "Hello. You've come to the right place for new Sky Email and Tools, but you're a little bit early.
      We're upgrading everyone in stages to make sure we do it securely. Your upgrade hasn't happened quite yet but you can still carry on using your original email service and getting your emails by logging onto Sky Broadband - Home. Rest assured we'll switch you soon and we'll let you know the minute it's done."

      Any suggestions?

      Yes, you need to wait until you have been upgraded to the new google system. at present you are still on the old one. You need to use the old settings.

      Re: New Sky Email SMTP and POP Settings (powered by Google)

      I've come online tonight and downloaded my e-mail (using Outlook 2007) without problems. I tried sending an e-mail and got a 550 error.

      I'm guessing, although I have had no correspondance telling me that I've been upgraded, that my account has been "done". However, trying to log into Sky's website is impossible tonight as it just keeps timing out.

      I've tried to make all the changes to Outlook, but it keeps asking me for my password. From reading the above posts, I'm guessing it's because I haven't gone into my Sky settings and enabled POP. It's not through the lack of trying though!

      Re: New Sky Email SMTP and POP Settings (powered by Google)

      Hi,

      I am trying to configure outlook 2007 for my email. My email works fine but I have set-up a new e-mail account for my partner which is on the new google mail and I cannot get it to work in outlook. I have put in all the correct settings (i think) and enabled pop in google mail. It will send e-mail ok but everytime it try's to check incoming mail it keeps coming up with the username and password box. Anyone have any ideas?

      Many thanks

      Paul

      Good luck
