      Sky Mail and Gmail down?

      Update: 27/02/09 00:25

      Members are now reporting that this issue has been resolved.


      Update on Sky's website: Some customers are reporting problems with their desktop software when collecting their email by POP3. Engineers are investigating the situation. Meanwhile affected customers can access their Sky Email via webmail by signing in at www.sky.com We apologise for the inconvenience.

      http://www.sky.com/portal/site/skyco...icleId=2428910

      You could also try doing this:

      Changing you POP3 and SMTP settings to the following

      pop.googlemail.com
      smtp.googlemail.com

      Remember to change them back after the fault has been fixed.



      Anyone else experiencing a problem with Gmail or Sky Mail.
      Neither webmail service seems to have been available since around 11am.

      Re: Sky Mail and Gmail down?

      Is email down for everyone at the moment?

      I get my email via outlook and am always getting 'The connection to the server was interupted' error message.

      I can access my email if I go to sky.com


      Very annoying...
