      You have to set up an extra user first and what ever username you choose will become the email address before the @sky.com bit.

      If when you try to send mail you are receiving an error with the following
      message: "503 valid RCPT command must precede DATA" then you need to
      configure your email client to authenticate automatically by checking the
      "my server requires authentication" box in your email configuration.

      this is what i got of a website that i googled
