      user : user@sky.com
      password: *********
      imap.tools.sky.com port 993 SSL
      connection security SSL/TLS
      Use secure authentication UNchecked

      Outgoing server(SMTP)
      mail.sky.com
      Port 587

      Re: receiving sky on windows live mail [windows 7 ]

      Im using Windows live mail with a variety of email accounts including Sky, not one single problem so far.

      My Sky setup is as follows:

      Servers...
      Incoming: pop.tools.sky.com
      Outgoing: smtp.tools.sky.com

      Incoming mail server....
      Email: YOUR FULL SKY EMAIL ADDRESS
      Password: YOUR SKY EMAIL PASSWORD

      Outgoing Mail Server....
      Tick the "My server requires auth"

      Under Advanced....
      Outgoing Mail port: 465
      Incoming Port: 995
      (Tick both boxes and "This server secure connection")

      Also remember to log into Sky Email, click mail settings then click Forwarding and Pop/Imap link.

      In there click option 1 for "Enable pop for all mail and click save.

      Thats it.

      Re: receiving sky on windows live mail [windows 7 ]

      I'm trying to get Sky to work with windows Live Mail and Windows 7, is there any instructions. I'm using POP and have turned it on within Sky. I have tried the settings for Outlook and it's not worked, are the settings different.

      Which of the three options do I need to select out of the:

      Log on using clear text authentication
      Log on using secure password authentication
      Log on using authenticated POP (APOP)

      That would be:
      Log on using clear text authentication

      Yes, you must use Plain Text for log-on.
