      Re: Email problems

      I guess nobody knows...

      If it is a delay from someone sending to you arriving perhaps it is just the shakedown of the server whilst they iron out the last messed up accounts.

      As for your other accounts - I don't know I'm afraid, I don't know anything about the other providers and whether they allow POP access from outside their own ISP network. I think you mentioned in your other thread that they had worked up until your changed to the new sky settings? There is nothing in the sky settings change that would affect the other accounts being delivered to you. Sky are not blocking access to other mail systems as many others are able to get their mail successfully from other ISP's - myself included.

      That narrows the problem down to either your email provider or your computer - now if it has happened on all of your other ISP accounts and they are all from separate entities then it would be too much coincidence for them all to stop working at exactly the same time, so that probably narrows it down further to being a setting on your PC.

      I'm afraid I can't replicate the problem here. Sorry.

      Just a thought..
      Did you change the pop settings on your other email accounts to the skoogle ones by mistake?

      Re: Email problems

      You could set Skoogle to collect them:
      Inbox, Mail Settings, Accounts, Get Mail from other accounts.
      This works for other ISP POP mail as well as other Sky accounts.
