      Email / SMTP - non Sky email accounts?

      Hi there,

      As "Family IT Specialist" - ie, the guy that always gets called upon the moment anything related to the computer doesn't work - imagine my delight when my father decided he'd like to swich to Sky from Virgin Media..

      Anywho - most problems have now been resolved (apart from the painfully slow internet access)... but the one that remains is the sending of email from Outlook for non @sky.com accounts.

      I've had a little look through this site and keep coming across articles telling me how to configure my Sky Email account but that's not what I have.

      So, can anyone please advise what SMTP settings I need in order to send email from Outlook, using Sky as an ISP from my own domains.

      Thanks in advance for any help, and my apologies if this is a popular topic and there are a multitude of other threads, I tried a search but didn't get far very fast so hoped this would be quicker!

      Kind regards

      Rob

      You can't send via the Sky SMTP server without it adding the @sky.com account to the email.

      But See here.
