      Please help me to make an email account (Does someone have spare addional user slot?)

      I have a sky ID, but I'm not a subscriber of sky tv. So I have a sky ID WITHOUT email account because sky doesn't provide email service for free ID yet.

      So it's necessary to add my ID on SKY subscriber's primary account...

      Would anyone add my ID on addtional user list in the primary account please?

      My question seemed to be unclear...I modified it.
      I need someone who has SKY subscriber's primary account.

      Re: Please help me to make an email account (Does someone have spare addional user sl

      I would advise against doing this.

      If you were to become a secondary user on someone elses primary account, the primary user can phone up sky, and ask for the security answer to your account, then go into your email account and change the password. Therefore, you would lose access to your account and your private info would be unsecured.

      also, if you were to have an issue with your secondary account, you may not be able to contact sky for support. Due to Data protection, if you called in you would have to provide the account password, and if you emailed in, they may not be able to perform any t/s as you are not the primary account holder. You may need to ask the primary user to do this for you. so unless they are a good friend, you may be out of luck.

      Why do you want a Sky address anyway, the service is pretty poor, and that is coming from a Sky employee. I'd advise getting a gmail account, which is exactly the same as a Sky mail account, but with a gmail domain.

      Or, go for a good email service like Hotmail.

      I didn't think about it. That's a big security issue. Thank you for your advice.
      I will look for the other mail services.
