      SKY mail Gmail Outlook & Outlook Express XP Home SP3

      Hi Forum
      Just escaped from TalkTalk & Sky BBand is faster & cheaper...BUT I have a netbook, lappy & Tower - all units are OK with SkyMail. The Laptop & Tower & only the laptop works with send / recieve emails with outlook Googlemail SkyMail. The tower (has the same settings as the Lappy) will send from outlook when I open Outlook. LapTop & Tower are on LAN & the netbook on wireless (OK but I have to use M$ Works 8.5 & it sends web links out by Live Hotmail)
      Tried SkyMail Help but this question is unresolved...
      I would give up & go with FFox & Tbird but FFox dosent like to send web pages & I need this easy function due to research.
      Any ideas? Im sure its a simple POP IMAC PORT or even LOCK? answer but I need a quick fix
      BTW I think its crazy & indecent for Sky BBAnd CD to have 450 Mb unused & the Sky Help files fragmented all over the site - ie answer my question on the CD with a pdf file...

      I don't quite understand what you need help with. Sounds like all your devices are sending emails OK?

      Thanks for reply - The Tower on skymail is OK but on outlook will only send e mail & inbox is frozen, laptop send / recieve OK on skymail & outlook (both on same lan & have same settings (for outlook) Netbook wireless is OK uses MS works 8.5 & Skymail
      Problem is to get the Tower send / recieve on Outlook.

      What settings are on the PC having issues (server details, etc.)?

      Everything looks correct, can't think what else could be affecting it

      Re: SKY mail Gmail Outlook & Outlook Express XP Home SP3

      me 2....I had quick look at some posts & unlock sky mail lock - maybe try that but no idea of what it is or does???
      Still I can work around my problem & Im very impressed with sky BB speed & lo cost - it must be a no brainer to use Sky BB when you are sky user.
      Many thanks for looking over my shoulder. BTW I used the O2 web dongle for the 15 dead web days between TTalk & sky, 10 for 90 days for 10GB & a 20 dongle = OK but why no sky dongle??
