I think you wil find that SKY is Web based mail and not compatable with Outlook express.

Try using a Gmail or Yahoo web based server.

It's based on GMail, and it's true that it won't respond to an email client unless you activate that feature in the account settings as described in the link "Clapton is God" posted. However, it is compatible with external email clients once you've done that.
