      Outgoing emails - now showing sky address :( instead of my website/email address

      Outgoing emails - now showing sky address , instead of my website/email name

      Not sure if this has been answered, but could not find no subject header similar.

      As many will be aware, for those that have businesses, websites - now with the new settings we have to put in user/password into the advanced tab in our mail clients on our computers, ie OSX Mail, Outlook.

      So now my sent emails show my sky email address myname@sky.com, and really confuse clients and friends, all replies will go there too, which i dont use.

      But i need it as it was before the sky/google merge, myname@mywebsite.co.uk


      Is there anyway around this?

      Or will have have to fork out money on using a third party smtp email server providers (like .authsmtp.com) that overcome this problem.


      Help!

      thanks

      If you have a business site then you should use your own domain servers if supplied. The google system is not designed for what you want if you take it through Sky, it can however do it if you use google apps with your domain. Skys residential broadband service was never meant for people to use for business or work purposes.

      Thanks, as far as im aware, my hosting company only offer incoming emails, and not outgoing.

      I can use their online webmail, but its so basic, there is no sent folder

      If it is possible, it's beyond cryptic.

      Sky are about to lose 100 a month from me. I've always been morally opposed to using so many of their services, but i've stuck with them as their TV is far superior to anything else.

      Virgin here I come.

      Re: Outgoing emails - now showing sky address :( instead of my website/email address

      I have set up an SMTP server to be used by any Sky users in distress who need to send emails with a non sky sender address and retain the non sky sender address in the emails sent.

      This service is provided free, no service setup is required just a change to your email programs settings.

      To get your SMTP account enter your email address here

      Bigthinka

      and details of how to use the new SMTP account will be sent to you.

      thanks, my host provider can upgrade me for under 30 to a windows based server instead of linux server im on, and enable smtp for outgoing mail, so no need for sky at all for emails. Anyone else should do the same if possible.
