      It's just google's servers at the end of the day.
      Well I can confirm, I am now all activated on O2 and I am having no problems accessing Sky's (Google's) email servers via secure POP3/SMTP

      If I left Sky broadband but retained a Sky email address, would I still be able to use Skyuser SMTP and stay a member of this forum?

      Regards,

      I am sure NR will tell you for sure, but as the forum is independent of Sky I don't see why not.

      Perhaps I should add that I am (obviously) still a member of this forum (although I have also joined o2user) and I also have a skyuser SMTP account

      Re: Sky email without Sky Broadband?

      Hi guys,

      I moved house in January and tried to continue using Sky Broadband but i'm unable to get any landline based internet at the new property. I eventually started using 3 mobile broadband in March, it's slower and more expensive than i am used to but it's all i can get! My Sky email has been happily coming through Windows Mail since the change over until yesterday when it stopped and asked for verification from the Sky server. Nothing i have done has worked, so i called Sky who told me that because i no longer have broadband from them i can only view my email as webmail and not through Windows Mail! (but he didn't seem sure!)
      Why did it take this long for it to stop working and why does my wife's still work??
      Does anyone have a work around for this? Or am i stuck until they bring fibre optic to us poor unfortunates in the Cornish countryside?

      It may be Windows Mail which is causing the problem. Have you had an update for it your wife has not? I don't really see why using another ISP should stop you accessing Sky Webmail, it is the same as Google Mail after all and you can access that from Windows Mail..

      Try changing the servers you use to the Google ones:

      pop.gmail.com
      smtp.gmail.com

      Or

      imap.gmail.com

      You could try the unlock captcha. Use just your username without the @sky.com bit.
