Sky SMTP requires SSL (Secure Socket Layer) authentication. Make sure you configure the correct port number, 465. I am not familiar with Outlook Express but I cannot believe is doesn't do SSL at the very least.

If Outlook Express doesn't support SSL then you need to find another Email client. There are many to chose from, most a lot better than OE. My favourite is Eudora, no 8 in the following list. Old and no longer supported but still the best.
