      Re: Which Outgoing Mail Server???

      using Outlook 2007 (and bearing in mind this might be different for others) I just went through entering email address/password and Outlook finds the server settings automatically so didn't have to set anything up but it works in an IMAP way in that changes made in Outlook are mirrored in Hotmail...

      There is a huge difference, between the two methods.

      On the web browser, you have already signed into your Hotmail account, therefore authenticated, therefore allowed to send your email.
      Yes i log in to the hotmail email service/site and then recieve or send emails via a browser, i do not use anything else other than that, no outlook or thunderbird or anything else.

      If your taking about the part in the router where it asks for authentication after entering the hotmail outgoing server, yes i have entered my hotmail username and password but it still didnt work?

      Re: Which Outgoing Mail Server???

      why are you entering stuff into the router, you don't need to (and I'm pretty sure the 'email' in the sky router doesn't actually work).

      I'm a bit confused. What are you actually trying to do?

      If you want to send/receive hotmail via the hotmail website, then just continue as you were...... does that work okay?

      If you have logged into the router (192.168.0.1) and gone to the Email tab, then that is a red herring. leave the Email notification turned OFF in there.

      If you want to use the router email settings to get emailed of any threats that your router has identified, then dont bother as i;m sure it doesn't work on the sky router/network (hence all the trouble you are having).

      The router has a firewall and as long as you have your own antivirus/firewall on the PC too (and you keep it up to date) then you will be fine.

      have a read of these 2 threads and then make the decision to leave the email section in the router off

      Well, with an SMTP account, you would put the SMTP Username and Password in, as well as your Hotmail email address, and provided the router did actually send the reports, they should be received via your MSN account via the browser. (This would then authenticate and forward the email on for you)

      Which is what I have understood you actually want to achieve.

      However, I have no idea how to set it up with Hotmail, apart from what IANTE has posted above, unfortunately that won't work for you.

      you cant use hotmail as it is an http account (in outlook) and as such doesn't have an smtp server.

      in outlook, mail is sent/rec'd via the hotmail server:

      http://services.msn.com/svcs/hotmail/httpmail.asp

      If you had for example your own domain:

      myemailaddy@mydomain.co.uk and tried to send an email through Sky's SMTP server, it would append yourusername@sky.com (ie your Sky email address) so any replies from any email you send from myemailaddy@mydomain.co.uk would actually get returned to yourusername@sky.com if a person replies. (hope that makes sense)

      If you use a third party SMTP server, ie ours, then you can use the email address

      anythingyoulike@anydomainyoulike.co.uk and when anyone replies it would return to that email address, not your yourusername@sky.com address.

      Sky use Google (Skoogle) and so unauthenticated email against the SMTP is rejected so to speak, to reduce spam.


      Read the instructions, apply for it - normally takes anything from minutes to a few hours to get setup. Once setup, you would put our SMTP details in along with your username and password, and away you go
      Hi NR,

      I do what you say we can do. I mean I use my own domain as I have done for ages but in the last few month I am getting bounces glaore and emails lost in the blue because of the dynamic IP thing.

      I was told that to avoid this I have to use my ISP smtp, which is Skym but when doing that I have the behaviour you state.

      Any idea how to work around this?

      Thanks
      JC
