      Yes I am also unable to set up my wifes email account. It appears that you cannot log in with additional users log in to alter the settings.

      Re: How To Set Up Alias E mail On Gmail Account

      @sven there is an option in the gmail setting buts all mails your send will have the following in the header:
      NAME username@sky.com on behalf of NAME alias@alias.com
      breaks any mailing lists you are subribed to with your alais.
      You cant even send yourself an email anymore using your alais to test if your alias is actaully working which is doent as skoogle mails is overwritting the header and message fields on your behalf

      If you are talking about additional email addresses (aliases are something different) then yes, you can set them up.

      If you have an existing additional account email account you need to log into Sky.com - Home as that user to turn on POP just as you did for your main account. Once you have done that you can set it up in any email client.

      If you have any problems doing this please post back.
