      Outlook 2007

      Feels like I've had nothing but bother since I got my BB activated, anyway......

      I'm using outlook 2007 and can't set it up to receive or send my sky emails. I've checked the settings 4 or 5 times and tried the different settings some people have suggested on here. I followed skys instructions word for word and still nothing. I rely on outlook greatly and this is just getting to the stage where I can't think what else to do other that open up a yahoo account and use that!

      Re: Outlook 2007

      hang on

      its E-mail@sky.com
      password

      pop.googlemail.com - 995 ssl
      smtp.googlemail.com - 465 ssl

      the sky e-mail has gone down before thats why im suggesting the googlemail servers so that when skys godown you can till get your e-mails. also the smtp must be ssl

      LOGIN:
      E-mail@sky.com

      I don't use Outlook 2007 for Sky emails but I do have an account and have tried both the suggestions above and I get the same result as the OP. Quite simply it doesn't work - I have my Sky email account set to Forward email to my own domain email account, maybe that is why in my case.

      Re: Outlook 2007

      In my case it was the POP settings on the Sky server that were causing the problems. If I stopped Forwarding and reverted to POP Enabled it worked fine. Maybe the OP should check that out again.
