      If you change the settings to googlemail.com as previously advised, it should work fine and there will be no ill effects.

      You can always change it back after proper service is restored.

      Thanks for the pop.googlemail.com and smtp.googlemail.com suggestion.
      I got mine working fine with that.
      Will it be safe to leave it like that for good or does it need to go back to sky.tools when they've got themselves sorted out??

      Re: Sky Mail and Gmail down?

      I am accessing my sky email through POP - is anyone else using IMAP - as I guess this would be a way around if the problem is with POP. Is there anyone we can call in sky or is it just a waiting game?

      Thanks. I have also just altered the settings to googlemail.com and messages are getting through. What a palaver.

      Thanks for the googlemail work round. Works perfectly in Outlook.

      Still can't access My Sky though. Doesn't even recognize my sky email address to resend log on details.
