      SMTP for non Sky addresses

      I have 3 gmail accounts that are linked to 3 different email addresses. I want to use Sky as my SMTP server, as when I use Gmail, some users see the gmail account address, when I only want the email address to be seen by recipients.

      Eg:
      email is tim@XXX.com
      gmail account is timXXX@gmail.com

      Recipient sees <tim@XXX.com>(sent by timXXX@gmail.com)

      Can I use Sky SMTP in my Gmail settings? When I try, it insists on authentication, and obviously fails.

      You'd think since Google provide Sky with email, this wouldn't be hard?

      Thanks in advance

      Tim.

      As suggested by reddwarfcrew, you will need a skyuser SMTP account. If you use the Sky SMTP server they will see your sky email address in the same way they see your gmail one now.
