      Email login

      Does anyone else ever get directed to google chat when they log into their email account via the portal. I am sick of it as I want to go directly to my email and not some childish chat room.

      It's a redirect issue, point your browser to mail.tools.sky.com to bypass it completely.

      Its a pain, naff and an unwanted link in a prominant place on the front page. I'm disapointed in sky for that hidden link.

      The google chat issue is more than likely an issue at the other end of things and nothing to do with Sky, sky just links to a set page on google for peoples accounts. It's happened to me a couple of times and is annoying but since the link on the Sky page is not changing it doesn't look like an issue at that end. Linking directly to mail.tools.sky.com gets round it either way.

      It's a redirect, Sky point at a specified place they are told to by Google, it's the google end misbehaving not the Sky end. It may be that Google are moving things or changing some of the offerings at their end and it's having a knock on effect. If you use the kana form on the contact sky page in the help center to report it then Sky may well ask Google what they are doing.

      Yes I'm one of those

      I must say though, I have found some admiration for the way Everton are doing the business with the injuries and lack of strikers and they have become my second team.

      Credit where it's due, I'm not that bitter and would be happy if you finished second, behind us of course
