      Thanks to poster adlams on page 3 of this thread, changing my settings in Outlook Express worked for me too.

      Spent ages going through Outlook Express thinking somthing had changed and it hadn't. The suspected the Microsoft Update that went out in the past couple of days, and also having just installed Office 2007....and it turns out to be Sky's problem!

      Thanks for the tip adlams

      Hear, hear.

      Seriously, though, there must be thousands of users out there fiddling around, thinking their computer has gone haywire. It isn't good enough.

      HELP!!!!

      I gave changed to the googlemail settings and now have downloaded 982 messages that I have sent via sky email elsewhere. Does this mean these messages were never sent? Where have they come from?

      And the email messages sent to me are still on the server.

      This is driving me mad and thanks Sky for not letting anyone know what is going on!!!!!

      finally got my password reset, and now my googlemail config works.

      I'm beginning to hate Sky with a passion now.

      Re: Sky Mail and Gmail down?

      Now 1500 sent messages...... where are they all coming from???? I am drowning in emails that I have sent over the last year (which Sky should have sent to other people) and still no emails to me off the server.

      I hate Sky today..... I haven't got time for this!!!!

      Re: Sky Mail and Gmail down?

      I am in the routine of logging into the sky webmail once a week and there are always items of mail left there that have not been sent to my OE - some is spam but most are valid.

      I note that sky web keeps my OE sent messages which I delete regularly - @angel316 - yours must have been moved to the inbox.

      I note now though that I cannot log onto the web email pages - not loading - HTTP 500 error.

      Hi angel316

      Log in to your webmail account with Sky via Sky.com - Email & Tools>Tools Page Not Logged in

      Once in, go to
      Mail Settings
      Forwarding and POP/IMAP

      In this section you can change the set up to behave whatever way you want.
      I use Outlook Express and have my account to keep mails on the server after download - handy as a back up.

      Your settings may be such that POP mail is downloaded from day one.

      Hope this helps

      Dumfy
