      I have not received any notification from sky yet that this is happening. I wonder when they will do that?

      Re: Sky Yahoo! Mail FAQ

      tbh looking at Sky's website there is hardly any mention of email etc maybe they are not making a big deal about it anymore.

      Interestingly it does say this

      4. Email Tools
      (a) You and any additional user will have a Sky Broadband e-mail account which may enable you to access others services, for example a calendar and address book and instant messaging and voice services ("Email Tools"). You and any additional user are responsible for backing up any data you have saved in the E-mail Tools.
      (b) We may need to modify the content or format of any emails or instant messages ("Messages") sent via Sky Broadband in order to transmit them.
      (c) If this Contract ends for any reason you and any additional users will no longer be able to access your Email Tools via www.sky.com. Your Email Tools will be accessible via other Internet service providers for one calendar month after this Contract has ended, subject to the Usage Policies, except where this Contract has ended due to your fault. We will not be under any obligation to keep or make available any data held in any of your Sky Broadband email accounts for longer than one calendar month after this Contract ends. Any deleted data will not be recoverable.
      Which tends to suggest that if you leave Sky then your email (from Sky) would finish after 30 days anyway.

      Maybe if you leave sky, they send out a hitman to bump you off?

      Knowing Sky, new customers for the last few months have had these TandC's

      There will have been a point at which they decided, Yahoo! is the way to go. and so prior to that date, the Email for life may have been possible, but after that date not.

      Sky really need to be a little clearer in the FAQs etc

      I haven't received an e-mail notification from sky yet, but i was prompted to accept the new t/c's the other day, immediately after clicking 'sign in' on the e-mail log in page.

      I had the prompt for all 3 of my accounts on the same day.

      Iirc there was an option to skip & do it at a later date.
      The 2 links provided with the prompt were:

      http://www.sky.com/emailinfo
      https://skyid.sky.com/skyemail/terms

      I accepted the terms there & then & am still with the std skoogle mail.
      Still using the basic html version though.

      Re: Sky Yahoo! Mail FAQ

      Doesn't the "termination of contract" term refer to the termination of the email contract and not to the termination of any other contract with Sky?
      Presumably those of us who have left Sky but who have kept the email (I use it all the time) would be unaffected by this term whatever its meaning?

      Manual IMAP settings for Yahoo on other devices are as follows (from the Yahoo UK help pages):

      When setting up IMAP, you will need the following settings:
      Incoming Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
      Outgoing Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
      Incoming Port: 993 (requires SSL)
      Outgoing Port: 465 (requires SSL/TLS)
      Username: full email address (for example,bill@yahoo.com)
      Password: the password you login to Yahoo! with.
      Thanks for this mate. I use mac mail but was wondering when you enter your username (full email address) would it be @sky.com or @yahoo.com after the switchover. It's currently set to sky.com for the username settings in mac mail so just wondering how it might work? I suppose it all depends if the yahoo account on the sky website gives you the option to enable imap or not after the change?

      The Sky email addresses for their customers will remain "@sky.com" there will be no change.

      As for full imap support, I've had no response from Sky on this matter. If you wish to post a request for confirmation on their public site, please feel free to do so (stick a link here too please). It would be fair to assume that this has already been raised internally. With the increasing range of devices which we all use to connect to the Internet, I would have thought that imap would be a better way forward.
