      Anyone got a solution for sending yourself an email ?

      Hi, I used to use web based email but have "upgraded" to Outlook2007.

      I understand that you cannot send yourself an email from Outlook 2007. Has anone got a solution to do this ? I tried to send it out to my Yahoo account and then get it "forwarded" back to my sky account but it did not come back.

      Any help on a solution on this would be appreciated.

      PS. Before anyone asks I send emails to myself with files "backed up" from my work's PC to my home PC.

      Are you sending form work using Exchange Server? If so then I suspect your system administrator has set up a filter to catch spam using the same sender address as the recipient address.

      Maybe I'm not understanding the issue but can't you just send from your work email address to a personal email address (e.g. googlemail)?

      BTW I use Outlook 2003 and that doesn't give problems so I'm not sure what's changed in 2007 unless it is just a filtering issue

      Check your Outlook error folder and see if there are any server rejection messages, also your filters to see if any relent ones may be intercepting.

      But as I said before, do you have to send and receive from the same account? Or you could buy a cheap USB stick and use that for backups?

      Or create a new user via your main user account login on sky.com email and tools and use that to test.

      Hi, I checked the filters and they all seem ok.

      I really don't want to create a new account in either sky, yahoo etc or use my works email account. I want to keep all my backup files in Outlook 2007 on my Laptop.

      All I want to do is send from...

      xx@sky.com to xx@sky.com

      Basic stuff I know but I reaq somewhere that you can't do this with Outlook2007 on sky email ??? Question is...Has anyone found a solution to do this ?

      Thanks for your help

      I don't think you can, Sky mail is provided by Googlemail and you cannot send to and from the same account with them either.

      You can't pick up a test email you sent yourself from any sky mail account (I assume to do with google as you used to be able to with the old Sky mail supplier).

      If you log onto the web portal you will see the test mail sitting there.

      If you want to test your incoming mail create another free email with google, hotmail etc and send a test email to your sky address.
