Beware moving to Sky if you have your own domain


[link to this post]
 
If you have your own domain and use a desktop email client such as Thunderbird, then you will not be able to send emails using your own domain name (eg me@mydomain.com)

Sky smtp servers will not allow this.

Where?

Are you using port 25 for SMTP? Most ISPs do block that, but most mail hosters provide an alternative port.

Entirely incorrect.

Sky even have a support page advising how to set up a third party address: http://help.sky.com/email/composing-emails/send-an-e...

It's a Yahoo issue.

You need to add your sending address in Sky Yahoo webmail. You will then receive an email to that address for verification.

That article is about sending from Sky Webmail. OP wants to send from mail client over SMTP.

supremetwo's link is more appropriate.

The steps outlined in both our links is identical. Although my link only mentions webmail, it's equally applicable to SMTP.

I have just moved for BE to Sky and have my own domain.

In fact multiple domains for my self, wife and a committee I am a member off.

I have had no issues with sending emails using SSL and an alternative port to port 25 given to me by my domain provider.

Anyone who has an SMTP server from their third party email provider might as well use that rather than take the steps in these posts. Port 25 will work on Sky too, it's not blocked.

Some people take the cheaper option to domain hosting + email hosting which is domain hosting + email forwarding. Domain providers will typically not provide use of an SMTP server for these cheaper options so ISP SMTP servers are required.
