      Wot no IMAP !!

      I've been using imap.sky.com since I joined sky (I know its not official). Been switched to google mail overnight and I no longer have IMAP access. Heres hoping that they update the hosting to be like gmail which has just rolled out IMAP service. With all those iPhones going to be sold on Friday it would seem like a good idea.

      Guess I'll have to use gmail as my primary account for now.

      Re: Wot no IMAP !!

      Yeah I just noticed this... A week or two after gmail announce imap, sky move across to google apps and don't have imap.

      Madness in my mind. However I don't use my sky.com account.

      IMAP has not been rolled out to all existing gmail accounts yet, I am sure that once it is Sky will be included.

      I had no imap on my gmail - Changed language to English(US) and voila it appeared. Just have to be careful when walking down the sidewalk now ;-)

      This worked for me too on my Google Apps account, but not for the Sky account.

      Creating a gmail account to send your sky mail to could be a workaround for those who need IMAP.
