      Cant access emails on work computer

      Hi,

      My office computer does not run "activex" and as a result I am unable to view my Sky emails. When logging on I am taken to a screen which says "Google Mail requires Activex controls to be enabled". However, there is also an option to view Google Mail in HTML view, which does not require Activex. Upon selecting this option I am taken to a Googlemail login page which requires a username and password. My Sky details to not work when I enter them.

      I guess my question is; How do I view my emails from work (HTML)? I used to be able to do this prior to the introduction of Google Mail.

      Thanks...

      By using either of these sites instead:

      mail2web.com - Pick Up Your Email

      MyEmail.com: Check Email from Anywhere in the World

      Thank you for this.

      I've logged on using my Sky username and password, however there is only one email in my inbox and that was the one sent by Sky back in November. How do I access my other mail?

      Sorry to be a pain

      Cheers!

      Sorry??? I've logged on using my Sky username and Password, however, instead of there being a number of emails in my inbox there is only one - and that was sent in November. My question was; how I access my more recent emails?

      Thanks

      I suspect you are still using the old pop server, you should be using pop.tools.sky.com

      You may need to specify advanced login to tell the system to use ssl etc or you will only hit the old servers which are very near to being de-comm'ed.
