      Sky mail settings in Outlook

      Could someone help me please?

      I use sky mail & used to access it easily from the desktop via Windows Mail, since the demise of windows mail I 'm now using Outlook however, my incoming mail doesn't show any company logo's just small red coloured x in boxes. I'm not a fan of Outlook at all but it seems to be tied in to Windows 10, I've noticed in the settings it shows IMAP & not Pop, Could someone tell me the correct settings to use for Outlook please.

      Or , suggest a better option with another e mail service provider that I can link Sky mail to

      thank you & to all a very Merry Christmas

      David

      Merry Christmas David.

      I can't help with Outlook but have you tried Thunderbird? It doesn't load remote images by default as these could present a security risk but it is very configurable and still includes Pop as a method for receiving mail.

      just to follow up the settings generally in outlook if installed should be found at

      file, options,
      trust center, under trust center click settings
      untick the "dont download automatically" box...

      Just tested it on my outlook 2016, seems to sort it.

      Re: Sky mail settings in Outlook

      If you look around on the Internet, there is an old copy of Windows Live Essentials which will allow you to install Live Mail without having to access the Microsoft servers. Most downloads claim to install without such access, but I've found one.

      Search for "wlsetup-all.exe". The filesize should be 108,791 KB.
