What (if any) type of email account do Sky provide with their ADSL service?

Is it pop3 etc?

They supposedly do supply a pop3 acount, servers are

pop.sky.com
smtp.sky.com

BUT they are very patchy in service, some people apparently can access
them all the time others can occaisionally whilst others (like myself)
more often than not can't. Any attempt at sorting out problems with
their pop servers with their service desk, via email or telephone,
inevertably boils down to them NOT supporting your software, no matter
what it is. They do also supply a webmail service which does work &
can be accessed by login onto their website

www.skybroadband.com

The way around the problem is to set up up an external mail service
(mine is costing me £11.50 per year), this also gives you the option
of having a concistent email adress which stays the same who ever you
use, so there's not excuse for losing touch etc (which could also be
called a bad point).

Or maybe a free GMail account would be good enough for most people?

True, there's a lot more thrown in for my costs which may prove to be
useful over the years, but at least the OP knows he doesn't have to
rely on SKYNETs servers & that there are other ways of doing things..
