      You can't send mail via Sky's SMTP server without it changing the outgoing headers.

      Hopefully sky wont withdraw the ability to send from " smtp.sky.com"
      Is there any chance of Sky keeping the smtp.sky.com server in place? I doubt it, but surely they will look at some of the disappointed customers on this forum. Particularly those looking to leave the service all together.

      the point of moving to google is to do away with the old servers so i doubt it VERY much...
