That is the problem.
Your Server information is probably setup as mail.sky.com.
Open Windows Mail, go to the Tools Tab, Accounts, select your default (pop.sky.com) account, then click Properties.
This time, go to the Servers tab, Under Server Information: Make sure that the "My incoming mail server is a POP3 server.
For Incoming mail (POP3), enter: pop.sky.com (all lowercase, no spaces).
For Outgoing mail (SMTP), enter: smtp.sky.com (all lowercase, no spaces).
Under Incoming Mail Server, the E-mail username field should have your account username. And the Password field should have your sky email account password.
You can check the Remember password box -- I have it checked on mine -- but for security reasons, you might not want to.
Under Outgoing Mail Server, check the My server requires authentication box.
Again, click on Apply & OK, then close the window & let's see what happens.
