I had a Freeserve account from the start and when I got Sky BB I used those settings to access Freeserve through Sky BB and the Gmail with no trouble...But about 6 months ago I couldn't access Freeserve ( Account not recognised ) I think that Orange had closed the account because I wasn't using dial-up, I think they make some money on the phone charges and maybe because I wasn't logging on through Freeserve.
