      Having never used Android, I've no idea how to set up Exchange push with that put here's iOS set up instructions. I would imagine most of the settings will be similar (certainly the server settings)

      Also I can confirm even if you read emails on the phone, you can still see/read them on the desktop (set-up as IMAP) until you delete them. Delete emails from phone or desktop and they automatically delete from the other devices.

      Re: Sky email and the Galaxy S3

      Being an Android geek I know how to set up the email clients but this one has me stumped. I don't have the phone to hand as it's my Dad's but it's a SIM-free handset. Could it be because I'm using the FULL email address (like you do in Outlook) instead of just the bit before @sky.com for the username?

      Re: Sky email and the Galaxy S3

      I have the galaxy s2.

      On the Email App I had to use the settings from the forum here to configure it correctly as pop3.
      On the GMail App I just put the email address and the password in and it configured it itself, probably due to it being hosted by google.

      I should add I'm running ICS 4.0.4 so it should be the same as on the S3.

      Gmail app is easy, but the S3 Email app will NOT take my Dad's login credentials at all

      In fact just realised I use the GMail app not the default email app for my Sky email account for exactly the same reason. They are virtually identical.
