Prior to switching to Sky, we purchased a domain and changed our email over to that. Using Outlook, I set the email address at our domain one, and when I send emails through that it looks my domain email address, rather than the f2s.com address. I have set the email to just forward to my f2s and now my sky email addresses

I am now trying to do the same thing with the Sky email. However despite doing the same thing when I send email it still looks (and replies) to the Sky.com email address.

Has anybody else done this? Can you help at all?

Can't you set IMAP so that your Skymail is forwarded to your domain email, and when you click reply you do s with your domain name extension? I do the same thing with Gmail.

Outlokk should use the eMail Addy & the Reply Addy that you have set in the Outlook a/c for this domain. What have you got these set to?

If you look at the Message Source of the Sent Item in Outlook what does it contain in the From: and Reply-to: fields?

Is its Outgoing Mail Server set to Sky's SMTP? Sky's SMTP should not alter these addys.

you'd need to change your domains DNS servers for that to happen by the sounds of it, and Sky won't support that.

I have got it sending by adding xxx@mydomain.com to my emails listed under settings.

This at least get the reply address correct but it now shows as:

From: xxx@sky.com sent on behalf of: xxx@mydomain.com

When you reply it does at least go to xxx@mydomain.com. I have tried getting their support in this but been told they don't support Outlook as it is a Microsoft product, I tried getting through to them that that side of things is fine as I am doing the same as I do if I send through my old ISP but they just keep reiterating we don't support outlook.

Thanks I found that via various searches, and I have applied for their SMTP server. I was going to post once it was setup and working. smile
