      We're aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a number of users. This problem occurred at approximately 1.30AM Pacific Time. We're working hard to resolve this problem and will post updates as we have them. We apologize for any inconvenience that this has caused.
      Pacific Time? There was me wondering why Sky quoted Pacific Time in their status update when we are all in the UK.......then silly me realised that it was from Google as Sky don't bother with status updates on their website as they rely on excellent sites like this to do the work for them.

      I get the following on incoming emails (2230 hours 25.2.09) on both of my computers (XP and Vista)
      Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: "my name" Server: 'pop.tools.sky.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F
      So there is still a problem.

      Re: Sky Mail and Gmail down?

      I have also changed to pop.googlemail.com and smtp.googlemail.com and my email is now working again in Outlook 2007.

      For the record, the imap settings work fine, but I don't like how it operates using imap.

      Both IMAP in Windows Live Mail / Windows 7 and web portal are working for me - IMAP with original Sky settings
