Not a silly question at all, from what I can gather (having had sky for years) is that as part of the contract the box has to be connected to the telephone for 12 months (never figured out why) to send e-mails it needs to be connected and also you need a keyboard (surprise!! available at extra cost) you can then access the e-mail option and send messages although it is easier and quicker on the internet! it is a "poor mans" version of the internet and at a vastly more expensive cost too.Hope this answers your query and enjoy the repeats!!!!!!

Yep, if this is anything like Blueyonder's e-mail it would be quicker to chisel your message onto a piece of wood and deliver it by hand to Antarctica.

I think that they are sent/received quickly enough; it just takes forever to display them and do anything useful with them using your telly.

N.B. I meant Blueyonder's TV e-mail. The regular (internet/POP3) e-mail is fine.
