      it is the right password because i have just signed in here with it,thank you
      Unless you are using the same password, you should not be able to sign in here with it. This site has nothing to do with Sky or Sky Mail. What you must do is go to your MySky page sign in there and see if you can access your email on line. If you can your password is correct, so something else is wrong with your settings. Can you try that please.

      One thing to check, which many get wrong, is that your username on the email set up page is your full email address eg karen at skydotcom not just karen.
