      Additional Sky email addresses

      I've successfully added another sky email account with a much more friendly handle@sky.com, but despite instructions to forward a copy to my username@sky.com email address (emails to which I receive in my vista mail OK having set up the default account as pop.tools.sky.com), these copies are not arriving. Can anyone help?
      The other related question is: how do you know the <friendly.handle@sky.com> address you create is not already in use?
      Or am I completely misinterpreting the "10 additional email addresses@sky.com"?

      Yes you are misinterpreting the "10 additional email addresses@sky.com".

      You create extra email address via manage additional users.

      The address you are currently trying to add is so you can send from your sky account using your already existing address's.

      Re: Additional Sky email addresses

      I think I now understand, I can create additional users with their own email address, ie for each member of the family, for formal/business, and "casual" emails, and I can get them to redirect via POP3 to vista mail so they can be viewed in one place, but I cannot test them, because I'm effectively sending them to myself, and they won't be downloaded to the POP client.
      Thanks

      I think if you send a test mail it will show up online via the Sky.com email portal but you will not be able to download it to your mail client.

      Re: Additional Sky email addresses

      In fact I've thought of a useful idea - to set up an account simply for ordering goods on the internet. If you don't enable POP, then you only need to visit when ordering or expecting deliveries, and to delete the inevitable SPAM, thus keeping your microsoft mail free of SPAM!
