      SkyUser SMTP account - three e mail addresses - advice please

      I have been using a SkyUser SMTP account for several years so that I can send e mail from my own domain email address this has been great thanks!

      The exchange where my aunt/uncle/grandma live has recently been enabled for Sky broadband (hooray!)

      They already have Sky TV so Im recommending that they switch from BT and get Sky broadband and Sky Talk (though retain their line rental from BT) this will save them a few pounds each month.

      They are currently using e mail addresses in the format of aunt@owndomain.co.uk, uncle@owndomain.co.uk and grandma@owndomain.co.uk that I set up for them a couple of years back.

      I will get them to register three e mail addresses with Sky for their mail to be redirected to.

      When they move to Sky broadband they will need to use a SkyUser SMTP account so that they can send e mails from their owndomain e mail addresses.

      Am I correct in assuming that they only need to register once with SkyUser to use the SMTP account as they can all use the same outgoing SMTP address? Their reply to address will show their individual owndomain e mail addresses.

      Any advice much appreciated.

      I can't see why this would be necessary as they will not be using sky email system at all.

      It's because they (like me) have their own domain name registered but don't have any e mail facility associated with the domain, only a mail forward option. For example mail sent to grandma@owndomain.co.uk is automatically forwarded to grandma@sky.com. All mail gets forwarded to a working e mail address hence the need for sky e mail. Hope that makes sense!

      Yes that makes sense, and explains the need for the sky email address's.
