      Yahoo Group Postings

      I use Thunderbird for my emails and am a member of a Yahoo group. When I send a message to the Yahoo group it goes by way of my Sky account. However whenever I send a message it gets to the other members ok, as I can see the message in the group but it does not come to me. Can anyone offer any help/suggestions on what is wrong and how to correct it?
      I have heard that the Sky email account doesn't let you send messages to yourself and I was wondering if this is the case here.

      You might need an alternative SMTP server if it isn't the case that you can't send emails to yourself:

      the messages will be in the web portal but won't come back to your client...from what i can gather...

      but I'd also be careful of large amounts of email being sent at once as its been known that Sky will suspended your account due to possible spam email attacks, from the IP it originates from, to protect the Sky network - just some advice

      This is exactly what is happening.
