      Sky Mail to Outlook Express Problem ?

      Hi,
      A new member here,so gentle please !

      I transferred over from Virgin last Friday and am quite pleased with Sky so far apart from a niggling problem in OE.I am a avaition enthusiast and a member of about 20 eGroups on both Yahoo and Google so I get around 200 emails a day.When on Virgin if I replied to a email or sent a topic (or even emailed myself) to one of the groups it would appear in my inbox on OE after I sent it so I know it had got there.However on Sky my mails are only visible on Skys web mail page and not being exported over to OE.Just to add all my other mail is exporting over fine,it's only when I either reply or send directly to a group I can only view it on Sky Mail on the web.Hope this makes sense ??
      I have done all the checks with the helpdesk and got transfererd earlier to Skys tier 1 technical department who were not much help.We went through all the settings again and as a experiment I emailed the lady via OE,she received it fine and replied to me.Arrived in my OE inbox,I then sent it to myself and it never arrived in OE,it was sat in Sky mail and would not transfer over...very strange.Apologies for the request,I lived with Virgin for 3 years and found there email flawless but with Sky it is concerning me as my emails are most important to me,I may consider moving to another ISP if this is not resolved.

      Thank you for any assistance,

      Tony.

      google's system doesn't allow you to send yourself an email through outlook - it'll stay on the server...

      Thanks for the reply,I think I may see the light.Subscribing to these groups I am effectivly sending a mail to the groups email address,it then in turn resends it to all the members so it is comming back to me,is that where the problem is as this is basically resending it to myself ?

      Can you think of any way around this other than changing ISP ?

      Once again thank you...

      Tony.

      Long shot perhaps but would the free SkyUser smtp server help:

      SkyUser Mail / SMTP
