      sky bb and yahoo email

      Does anyone have this setup?

      My gf had yahoo emails when we were with orange coming through to outlook express with yahoo pop incoming address and orange as the smtp but now i've chnaged to sky how do i set it up with incoming and outgoing settings, ports etc

      any tips would be good as at the moment since the switchover to sky all she can do is receive which i'm guessing is still because the yahoo incoming server details still work but she can't send

      I use the following and it works OK for me:

      smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk
      Port 587

      Re: sky bb and yahoo email

      ok i'll try it - i wondered why i had yahoo pop details and orange smtp details in before, i been trying to change it from orange to sky. I thought it had to go outgoing via my isp details to send

      So should both the pop and smtp setting be yahoo ones
