      Outlook express 13 & Thunderbird set up problems

      Morning all,

      I have read through the forum & tried various settings to try & get my sky email through the above but can't get either to work,

      I am running Windows 8.1 so are there actually any settings that work to get my email through either of the above ?

      Many thanks in advance for any help..

      Re: Outlook express 13 & Thunderbird set up problems

      For Thunderbird my set up is

      Server- pop.tools.sky.com
      User- xxxxxxxxx@sky.com (make sure you include the @sky.com)
      Port- 995
      Security- SSL/TLS
      Authenticate- Normal password.
      Outgoing server- SMTP.tools.sky.com
      Port- 465.
      Other setting as outgoing.
