      Sky Yahoo Unlimited Storage

      Sky are advertising unlimited storage as part of the move to yahoo. Sjy did have an online storage before but discontinued it due to lack os use.

      Does anyone know how we will be able to use our online storage as I would like to use it as a secure part of my backup strategy.

      Also will it have backup, archive and sync facilities together with a media server facility for remotre access and use

      I assumed it was just an unlimited mailbox.

      That is correct Dave.

      As for time limit, so long as your account is active, then any emails will be able to be retrieved.

      Are you sure? The following is off the Sky website advertising the facility

      "Keep hold of your memories. You can store as many messages, photos and videos as you like."

      Dave and Scubbie seem to be correct. The link provided relates to Yahoo! Email, not online storage / cloud services.

      Re: Sky Yahoo Unlimited Storage

      The FAQs say -

      • What changes will I see with the new service? Hide

        .................................................. .................. Also, with unlimited storage, there won’t be any restriction on how many emails you can store.

        The unread message count which currently exists on sky.com will not be available on Sky Yahoo! Mail. You will need to go into your mailbox to check if you have any unread emails.



      That seems to confirm the unlimited storage is for emails and their attachments only.

      But again it goes on to say -

      • Will Sky Yahoo! Mail be safe and secure? Hide

        Absolutely. ...............................

        Sky Yahoo! Mail includes industry-leading protection to help keep you safe online. Yahoo!’s constantly evolving security features are designed to keep you one step ahead of intruders and scammers.




      Hands up everyone who believes that.
