      IE has never been a standard implementation of Internet protocols.
      I didn't say I blamed Sky, but the webpage is their responsibility (or Google's seeing as Sky actually use a derivative of Gmail). So if the problem is going to be fixed it will be Sky or Google who will have to do it and not M$.

      Also, if you dont like M$ software then there is always Chrome or Firefox plus alternative operating systems but as I have used M$ software for over 25 years in my IT career then I'll manage with the compatability mode fix for now until it has been sorted.

      I get similar problems - can't open any emails, clicking does nothing. Compatibility mode sorts it.

      I'd say the blame lies with Sky as there is no problem with GMail, and IE9 is a huge step forward in standards compliance. Will see if I can get this raised, although I'm not optimistic anyone will listen.

      Issue is Sky Email always seems to run on an earlier version of Gmail- I'm sure it'll get sorted at some point but at least compatibility mode fixes it in the meantime
