Hi can anyone tell me if they are having problems accessing the Sky e mail I cant access it using Outlook, I just keep getting the Password box pop up, and I cant get into the Sky emails and tools page it just tells me to try later Cheers
Hi - Try This! In outlook Express, Select Tools, Accounts. You will see a screen, Internet Account's. It Should read: pop.tools.sky.com If not CREATE one. If it is already there, Highlight it and go into the Properties selection (On Right)
General Tab: Mail Account is: pop.tools.sky.com Name: how you want to be seen by Emailers. E-Mail Address: your E-Mail Address with sky. Include this account when receiving and sync: Tick
Servers Tab: My Server: pop3 Incoming Mail: pop.tools.sky.com Outgoing Mail: smtp.tools.sky.com Account Name: is your E-Mail Address. Password : as provided by sky (Case sensative) Remember Password: Tick. Outgoing Mail Server: My Server Req Auth:Tick.
Connections Tab: Skip
Security Tab: Skip
Advanced Tab: This is where it could be going down! Outgoing Mail (smtp): ENTER 465 in Box Tick Box Below as it needs a secure connection ssl. Incoming Mail (pop3) : Enter 995 in box Again tick lower box for secure connection ssl.
Yes,mine has been out for a few hours,but has only recently come back.The notice stated that it was a dns server error.I managed to access my messages via Outlook Express though.I now prefer Sky's mail page to O/E,but I didnt at first. Regards
