Hi - Try This!
In outlook Express, Select Tools, Accounts.
You will see a screen, Internet Account's.
It Should read: If not CREATE one.
If it is already there, Highlight it and go into the Properties selection (On Right)

General Tab:
Mail Account is:
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:
Outgoing Mail:
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:

Security Tab:

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.

Hope this cures your woes.
Regards Ric.

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.
