      Sky fetching Gmail?

      Apologies if this has been mentioned before, I've not been able to find using search.

      After setting up my mac (after a format - don't ask) I opened up mail.app, and set up my email.

      When it came to setting up sky, I entered all the details (POP) as per usual, when I hit Get mail, it brought hundreds of emails through, I thought this was strange, so had a look at one of the emails, and was astonished to find that my gmail emails are being pulled through instead of Sky? Although the username is the same for these accounts, the password isn't, and Gmail isn't even set up on my mac?

      I went into the Sky email tools, and made sure that the settings were correct, they were, so went back to my email prog. and deleted the account, I then set up my sky account using IMAP, again, my Gmail emails are being pulled through?

      I had successfully set up my sky email account previous to this, it was working this morning, prior to the format (using imap) but now it isn't.

      I've looked around the web and cannot find an solution to this?

      Does anyone have any tips?

      Dose this only happen when using a email app or does it do the same on the sky webmail ?

      It seems to be just the mail.app, I've just tried setting up an account with MS Office (partners laptop) and not even getting any mail through on that?
