      Nope, it's a side effect of Skoogle Mail.

      If you want a definitive SMTP server for your own private email you would be better using your own, or a hosted solution.

      You could try the Gmail one - smtp.googlemail.com - I think.

      The Googlemail one does the same, I found. Very annoying.

      I got myself a cheap subscription to AuthSMTP, and it's perfect for what you want if I read your message correctly.

      Re: SMTP Server Problems?

      I actually have my own smtp server in house (I've got an os x server) which has been forwarding stuff on to smtp.sky.com since a lot of ISPs block mail that comes from a dynamic IP but obviously this isn't going to work now

      Seriously unhappy with Sky now! I don't know of any other ISP that doesn't provide a basic SMTP server (and I've tried using easynet's ones but they won't relay from my IP address.)

      I don't know of any other ISP that doesn't provide a basic SMTP server
      In all fairness I don't know of any other ISP that gives me as much for so little.

      The AuthSMTP is fairly cheap to use

      AuthSMTP (SMTP-AUTH) mail relay pricing and service description.

      Would a domain and hosted solution not help you?

      Re: SMTP Server Problems?

      I have a domain solution, it's just that they, in common with most other providers, give you a pop/imap server and say use your ISPs server for outgoing mail.

      Unfortunately Sky are giving me so little for so much (a long and complicated problem that I was going to refer to Otelo. I decided I couldn't be bothered with the hassle but this is going to make me change my mind - I'm only 5 months into my 12 month contract but this is the final straw!)

      Thanks for your help though.

      Re: SMTP Server Problems?

      I think I am in the same situation by the sounds.

      I only use Sky as an outgoing server as our internet provider is Sky. These are business email addresses, so I am going to have to put @sky.com at the end of my emails instead of @businessname.com?

      If so, I will have to find an alternative smtp as I simply can't use @sky.com for a retail business.

      Don't kick off with Sky, as it shouldn't be used for business use as a heads up and they may terminate it if they find out.

      Re: outgoing email Problem?

      Hi - I wonder if someone could shed light on my problem.

      Yesterday everything was ok.

      Today I get the message below:

      --------

      Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

      Subject: RE:
      Sent: 04/02/2008 17:01

      The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

      'roxanne fieldhouse' on 04/02/2008 17:01
      503 Valid RCPT command must precede DATA
      ----------

      I have my own domain name that says i need to use my ISP outging mailserver smtp.sky.com to send mail from it. I have read that this has changed to: stp.tools.sky.com but stilli cannot send outgoing mail. Is this the end of outgoing mail!! - For people who have their own domain but require sky's outgoing mailserver?

      Thanks!
      JH
