      Anyone aware of email problems with sky and / or Gmail?

      I have been transferring my sky email to a Gmail email account today and it all grinded to a halt about 3.5 hours ago.

      I can't see any reason why and cannot find any status reports that say there is a problem.

      I am not even receiving new email via my Gmail account anymore, so something is wrong.

      Obviously, it is just me!

      I have not been receiving any email into my Gmail account since yesterday evening.
      I have changed no settings.

      Also, the import of my sky email stopped dead with a message 'unable to retrieve email' or something similar.

      Gmail don't allow free email acount users to have any support so I am unable to contact Gmail to investigate.

      Maybe I should have stuck with sky and suffered the dreadful Yapoo!

      I am sure that once things have transferred across everything will be just fine.

      I am dreading the transitional period as I get quite a few emails notifying me of posts on this and other forums. I guess that for a few hours it will be apparently quiet.

      But I am not even receiving current email.

      I understand that my old sky emails may be delayed.

      I was receiving current email but it just stopped dead yesterday evening.

      Status reports say there is no problem so where have they gone?

      I should have had around 100 or more emails received overnight whilst asleep as I am a member of quite a few mailing lists and nothing arrived.

      Re: Anyone aware of email problems with sky and / or Gmail?

      I have just proved that it is Gmail at fault as I own the domain 'dog-man' and I have all email addressed to that domain and it is forwarded to the email account of my choice. If I change it back to sky email, I receive current emails. If I revert back to my Gmail account, I get nothing.

      I have only used 3% of my Gmail allowance so the mailbox is not full.

      Very strange!

      Sigh........

      To be on the safe side, I have accepted having my sky email account transferred to Yapoo. (Never got an email).
      If ever my Gmail account sorts itself out I will dump the sky /Yapoo one.

      I cannot risk losing all my email as we are so close to the changeover.

      Im with Gmail have been for about 7-8 years not had a problem with them and I love the new secure feature so hackers cant get in it sends a random code to your mobile to login with so even if you login on another computer and choose not to remember the computer they wont be able to login quite clever.

      Re: Anyone aware of email problems with sky and / or Gmail?

      My mail seems to be trickling through now but it is very erratic. I expect the moving of emails from sly to be a long process and perhaps erratic, but not the reception of current emails.
      Never had a problem with sly via Gmail.

      Hopefully, it will sort itself out and then I shall dump sly / Yapoo.

      Re: Anyone aware of email problems with sky and / or Gmail?

      I was wondering as to why sky were moving to Yahoo and it clicked... Gmail no longer offer active sync on mobile devices without the Gmail app. Yahoo does. I'd rather have native mail being pushed to my phone than having to use another app. I know some will disagree with me on this but I opt for simplicity over functionality sometimes!

      Since clicking to accept the changeover to Yapoo, I am being bombarded with spam.
