      Thanks! Actually just spotted it myself about 15 minutes ago... when I was entering the numbers it kept blanking & I had to keep doing it again, so that's how.

      Followed the advice above. Worked in 2007 but not in 2010. I get the messages:

      ' None of the authentication methods supported by this client are supported by your server.'
      and
      'Your email server rejected your login with ... SPA. Verify the account properties in account settings.'

      It sounds like you have the box for Secure Password Authentification checked.
      If you have uncheck it!

      I have tried everything that has been said to try and link my sky email account to outlook 2010, but everytime I test, it states 'failed'. I have copied everything over correctly, all the settings are correct, so why won't it work?

      The most common error is not putting @sky.com after the username in the settings. Pic #2 above. Have you done this?

      Re: Sky email account with Microsoft Outlook 2010.

      Thanks Azasmith; this is useful information.

      I managed to setup the Sky email in Outlook 2010. Everything seems to to working except that I have lost all my SENT items. They are still there on iphone 4, so I hope that I can re-access them on Outlook. At present, I have three emails in the SENT Folder and these are the ones that i sent today.

      Hope that someone can help!

      Re: Sky email account with Microsoft Outlook 2010.

      Currently using Virgin.net account to receive my emails on Outlook 2010 and used to use skymail to send when I had outlook 2007, but since the move to 2010 I now continue to get the error message asking for my password and finally a time-out. I have tried all the various setting combinations suggested but on the outgoing server tab in advanced setting I only have my skyuser name and password with no @. Any suggestions, or should i just give up and use webmail?

      I only have my skyuser name and password with no @.
      I am fairly sure you need @sky.com here. I do, although I am using Thunderbird, I gave up on Outlook as it was overkill for what I require.

      Re: Sky email account with Microsoft Outlook 2010.

      Sky changed all their email to use SSL and it has messed up a few clients, including my own.


      Please check out Erinn's post here: Changes to Sky Yahoo! Mail - Sky Community

      Also check out the revised setup page here: http://www.sky.com/shop/emailchanges...c_emailchanges

      I also needed to check this page too to fix a few other things: Get emails on your Windows desktop client | Sky Help
