      I agree - I am not sure that the problem is with Sky's servers anyway! The pop.googlemail.com server IP address resolves to 74.125.79.29 and pop.tools.sky.com resolves to 74.125.79.208 on the same (googlemail) subnet. My theory is that pop.tools.sky.com is some sort of routing device at google which probably has port 995 disabled or some other silly fault which is why we are all having this stupid problem collecting our email.

      I'm afraid that workaround with the server settings doesn't work for me - Outlook keeps downloading messages from ages ago - 2007 included

      Mine is back, too. I don't know why I should be relieved because the workaround performed quite well for me, but I am. I suppose I feel comfortable with what I have known and worked with.

      Thanks, everyone for sharing your experiences.
