      sky changes my email settings

      I have recently changed from bt to sky and use outlook express to access my personal emails and work emails from 5/6 email addresses.

      In the past I could send using the respective work/personal/charity email adres and the recipient would receive an email showing that it was from me@respective email address.

      Now all email accounts are magically changed to show a reply email adress as the account holder of the broadband connection at Sky.com

      Does anyone know why this is happening .. It does not happen on BT or any other server that I use.

      Re: sky changes my email settings

      It's because Sky do not allow you to use their SMTP servers for sending your own email. If you have your own works/ personal addresses you should be using the respective email servers for them and not the Sky smtp server.
      You either need to sort out proper email hosting on the different domains and use the settings for that or you may need to apply for a skyuser email account and use their servers.
