      Why did they change? I hate Yahoo Mail :(

      Why did they change? Yahoo mail is awful, Gmail was faultless all the years I used it via Sky!

      I now get tons of spam, I get bounced emails (usually to AOL addresses I think) I hate all the adverts using webmail, and the link now between android smartphone & pc gives me double the work as they have no effect on the others folders.

      Is it just me or is it awful, or are there fixes?

      I have always used email as a web based application so don't really see much difference between yahoo and gmail.

      You can turn the adverts off in options.

      Nope it is awful I have the same and have tried everything, Yahoo is awful, tons of spam, lots of freinds with hacked accounts, no proper IMAP, and intermittent password no matter how many times I reset it. Absolutely crap service.

      Just setup a gmail account then. They are free, you know?

      You can then forward all your mail to there instead.

      I've always had my own gmail account, then it doesn't matter what provider you go with your email stays the same. It's prvented this particular Sky ****-up from affecting me at all.

      Sounds good, I already have a GMail account anyway. Do I just go into settings on my Sky Account then?

      Go into the Skyhoo settings, Mail Options, POP & Forwarding and put your Gmail address into the box and choose the option you want.

      Yes,its what we have done here,but the point is we should not have had to do this in the first place as this debacle has been forced upon us.I'm beginning to think that Sky WANT to lose customers.
