      We are now in the transitional period. Please be patient as Sky moves things across.

      The Yahoo! Mail app on my phone has sparked into life this morning as I receive notifications from the forums.

      P.S. Just in case, does anyone know how to get an S2 dried out? I have a feeling that before the end of today I might be drowning mine.

      I have Gmail setup to pull in all my @sky.com email. When I opened it this morning I found every single email I'd ever been sent was being re-delivered, completely flooding my inbox with thousands of old emails. It's so bad I can't even open Gmail, as it's literally being flooded with emails every millisecond. And worrying, around 25% of them are ending up in Gmail's spam filter, too.

      I really hope there is an easy way of expunging all the old emails, or else I will be very annoyed. Most people pay Sky a small fortune, so a half-decent email service should not be beyond their wit!

      Well, as long as they use Yahoo's email service, we're not going to get that any time soon.

      Did you not ever empty your spam folder?

      Interestingly, if I click the tab twice, it still opens the Old Google style page, although no new e mails this morning. Being patient is fine but not when you're hoping for news on interviews
