      Re: Adverts in Sky/Yahoo Mail

      Is it free though? I pay for Sky services which presumably gets me access to their email service. Ergo if I cancelled all my Sky stuff, I would lose access to my Sky email address? Either way I would have thought my monthly subscription is enough to cover an advert free email service?

      If I use an internet cafe type computer will I be able to install and configure a client such as Thunderbird? Will I then have to de-configure and un-install it to stop the next person from accessing my email? Really, do that every time?

      Re: Adverts in Sky/Yahoo Mail

      Firstly the Sky email address is for life. Its yours, whether you subscribe to Sky or not, the same as any other web based email, such as Gmail, Hotmail, etc. Provided you log in periodically it will stay active, even if you leave Sky completely.

      I am not quite sure what you mean about using Thunderbird in a public cafe. If you mean you want to install Tbird to download your email using a public internet service, I am not sure that this is possible. You would need the cafe's SMPT server address, which may or may not be available. Accessing Sky Mail in a public place would normally be done by using the Web interface, which would be protected with an HTTPS address. Unless your device hacked, no one can gain access to your account. As said previously, installing an add on such as Adblock+ will disable any advertisements. If Sky blocked access to your account when you used an add blocker, then you would have a complaint.
