      Thats brilliant news. The smtp server for my web hosts is so slow to authenticate. Thats the reason i never use it unless in cases of emergancy like this one. Great work NewsreadeR, if you need any assistance to test let me know mate, i have plenty time on my hands.

      Kind regards

      Re: Demand for a SkyUser SMTP server

      SMTP server is now being tested, the server supports...

      Authenticated SMTP connections.

      Support for SSL/TLS connections (not decided as yet if to make this a standard, not sure if all clients support this).

      Email size restrictions (we have not decided on the size limit as yet).

      User activity logs (so we can see if anyone is abusing this free service).

      There is also no limit as to how many mails you send (subject to an Abuse code of conduct agreement).

      We have simple ground rules for this:
      • You must be a SkyUser Member.
      • You must be on Sky Broadband.
      • Maximum Size of emails / attachments that can be sent is set to 30mb.
      • No more than 50 emails can be sent in one go.
      • If you abuse or Spam and we get complaints we will delete your ability to send using our SMTP server. Any abusive / threatening emails sent by yourselves and subsequently reported to us will lead to your account being deleted.
      • No email is to be sent by you to promote Copyright Theft / Intellectual Property Theft, ie Do not use our services to promote Torrents or any other illegal activities. If this is reported to us, we will delete your SMTP Account.
      • There is no limit to Email address's you wish to send from.
      • Your Username and Password will be unique to you, please do not share it with anybody else.
      • We DO NOT offer a POP Service, this is already available for you via other means. For absolute Clarity, ours is an outgoing Server only.
      • As this is a free service to our members, there is no Service Level Agreement, and we do not guarantee 100% Uptime, and is supplied as Goodwill and without any type of warranty.
      • We reserve the right to alter these conditions at any time if the service is being abused.
