      Thanks guy's, have changed settings in Outlook 2007 to "googlemail.com" as suggested and all seems well.

      I noticed that the "Test" emails I sent when changing the settings from "tools.sky.com" to "googlemail.com" never appeared in my "outlook" inbox (Changed 5 accounts and sent 5 test messages)

      When things are sorted is it best to leave as "googlemail.com" or change back to "tools.sky.com"

      Like you, I am not getting Test messages back. I don't feel too confident and will be glad to get back to my old e-mail account.

      NOTE TO SKY- Thank you very much for advertising the fact that there is a problem with the emails on the 'Sky Homepage' - I have just wasted 1/2 a morning trying to reconfigure Outlook Express only to find out its a problem with Sky!!! Big Thanks!!!
      Could problems that Sky are aware of be posted so they are easily seen by average people like me (For example on the home page). Yes I know I could have phoned sky but who wants to spend 30 mins holding on the phone and at what cost.

      Sky don't run this forum so they won't see that note..
      Not with their corporate head up their own backside they wont.
      Which seems to be their default position.
