      how to setup a sub folder for 2nd sky email address

      Morning all, Decided to try and setup an additional sky email address, my existing one works fine, and 2nd sets up fine but when i try to use outlook express to access 2nd account a window pops up asking to add user name and password,i read a post on this site which says to create a sub folder so sky can recognise it,i have tried and tried to get it working but the result is always the same, my original sky address is working on outlook express,thanks for any advice,

      Where you have set up the second account you have to tie it in with your original one, or at least you used to have to when I last did this.

      I think you are misunderstanding how it works. The second mail account is completely separate from the first so you will need to login to webmail using the second address and enable pop from there.

      Just log in HERE as normal, but using the credentials for your second email account.
