      Sky email PUSH iPhone

      I just thought I would provide some instructions, has I have read a few people are wanting to know if its possible to have Sky email PUSH/PUSHED through, on the iPhone, well it is if you follow the below instructions.

      1. Open the Settings application on your device's home screen.
      2. Open Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
      3. Tap Add Account....
      4. Select Microsoft Exchange. OS 4.0+ now allows multiple Exchange accounts.


      Enter Account Info

      5. In the Email field, enter your full Sky email address.
      6. Leave the Domain field blank.
      7. Enter your full Sky email address as the Username.
      8. Enter your Sky password as the Password. This is the password you used when you first created your Sky account (My Sky/Skyid etc).

      9. Tap Next at the top of your screen.
      9a. Choose Cancel if the Unable to Verify Certificate dialog appears.
      10. When the new Server field appears, enter m.google.com. I know this is m.google, but it works with Sky email because Sky email is basically the same as google email.

      11. Press Next at the top of your screen again.

      12. Select the services (Mail, Calendar, and Contacts) you want to sync.

      13. Unless you want to delete all the existing Contacts and Calendars on your phone, select the Keep on my iPhone option when prompted. This will also allow you to keep syncing with your computer via iTunes.

      You can use the same setup to add a google mail email account has a Microsoft Exchange account.


      I can confirm that PUSH works on the iPhone with the above instructions. I have sent an email to my google email address and also my Sky email address and both are pushed through IMMEDIATELY.

      Or yeah..... Don't forget to enable PUSH in Settings/mail, contacts, calenders section on the iPhone. Click on FETCH NEW DATA and switch PUSH on.

      Hope this is of help

      I last week had to go through the instructions again on adding Sky push email. I did this on my new iPad. I had no issues and my instructions still work and also still work when setting Google Mail up as well

      Re: Sky email PUSH iPhone

      For some reason my iPad keeps telling me the password is wrong although when you first setup the account it's verifies the server details. I confirmed the password by logging in through Safari so I have no idea why I'm having issues.
