      all reply to addresses get set to <me>@sky.com

      I have several email addresses which I use for communicating with friends and familly or with companies etc. Some are with tiscali. I've recently moved from pipex to sky and now all my reply to addresses of emails I send out are set to the @sky.com address.

      I'm obviously having to use smtp.tools.sky.com as my outgoing email server. I've got the "Reply email" (under account settings->More Settings->General->Other user information) set to the appropriate something@tiscali.co.uk, but it still changes it to be somethingelse@sky.com

      i want friends family etc to reply to the email address that I sent it from.

      No work arounds as that is the way google mail operates. If you have your own domain then you can try google apps but apart from that you are stuck with the sky.com showing.

      The only way round it is to use a mail client such as Thunderbird and use a different SMTP server to send your mail if you have other non Sky accounts use one of those SMTP servers.
