      repeated password requests

      Hi, hope you folks out there can help me.

      I run 3 email accounts (yahoo - mine, bt - boyfriends and sky) via my outlook 2003. after signing up for the sky user stmp service i finally got my mail - big thanks for that so that's one problem sorted.

      However - i now keep getting asked for the username and password when ever mail is being sent and recieved and the username and password it brings up is always the one for a different account, for example when sending mail from my account myname@yahoo.co.uk it'll bring up my mail.skyuser.com username and vice versa!

      any ideas - i'm not an expert, or even close!!

      Re: repeated password requests

      You will need a different smtp server to send your BT and Yahoo mail as you can only send sky email when you are on Sky.

      The SkyUser people operate such service and you can find the details here:

      Re: repeated password requests

      i already have the sky user smtp, the problem is that i repeatedly get the password/username box up. I'd rather not have to keep typing the passwords in each time it sends and receives. I've only had this problem since i switched to Sky broadband so i figured it was a setting somewhere that wasn't quite right.
      thanks for you help anyway
