Hi All,

Does anyone know how i can configure my outlook so it's my main email program. Yesterday I installed Sky broadband for the first time.

Hi VoG,

I've checked internet options and outlook is set as my email program. But when i click onto outlook it's asking me to select server type, which one do i choose?

Hi, these are Linux, Windows, Solaris, AIX, z/OS .... so I would hazard a guess that yout Server Type is Windows!!

Cheers

POP/SMTP

Considering he's using Sky Broadband and Outlook Express, I think he'll be using a POP3 Server.

From what I can gather, Sky's incoming mail server is either pop.sky.com or mail.sky.com - I don't know definitively because Sky's support information is only available to customers. However I'm relatively sure that Sky don't allow SMTP support at the moment, which is the method you would use to send E-Mail through Outlook Express. As I say, I'm not a Sky customer so I'm not getting everything from the horses mouth, but the last I heard was that to send E-Mail using a Sky account, you had to log in to webmail.

Hi Dan S,

As Dan S says, unless you are a Sky customer you cannot access their help pages. Try click here
