Thank you for your email.
I understand that you are unable to send or receive emails using Windows Live Mail and I appreciate your efforts for trying in Webmail.
Since the email services are getting migrated from Google to Yahoo Platform, it may take a little time for all your data to synchronize. I request you to delete the Sky email account from your Windows Live Mail and add it once again it to resolve the issue.
Please follow the below mentioned procedures to delete the Sky email account from your Windows Live Mail:
After deleting the email account, please follow the below mentioned procedures to add the Sky email account:
This is a step-by-step process to setting up Windows Live on a computer / mobile.
If the email is sent and it populates the Sent items folder then setup is complete.
If the email does not send or an error is received, perform the next check.
Unable to send or receive messages for the Sky account. Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems or a long period of inactivity.

COMPLETED AS ABOVE BUT STILL DONT WORK

Are you able to log in online? If so move all the emails in your inbox to a temporary folder and empty the spam folder. If WLM then loads O.K. there is probably a corrupt email. You can then Move any of the emails you want to download back to your inbox online and if the fault reoccurs then one of those emails is the culprit.

Another possible fix:
Login to your Sky Yahoo Email account online and when you are click on your name at the top right and select account info. You will then be asked for your password again so enter this and then select login which will take you to a personal info screen. Just close this and then try your email client again.
If it does not work after doing this try deleting the sky account in your email client and then re-adding it again.

My issue was similar but only applied to sending EMails since I use a different POP3 provider. The laest suggestion on re-inserting the password on webmail worked for me - I now only have to sort out my Android phone issue!.

I don't know what your issue is but have you tried installing the Yahoo Email app and using it by signing in with your Sky details ?

many thanks to all for the advice. I have tried most of the things listed. I also have a yahoo account that i use with no problems.
when using windows live it shows the list from the server about half way along the bar graph then stops stating windows live is not responding then gives the code 0X800CC0F funny thing is it's never at the same point twice. or downloading the same amount of emails.

Update on Windows Live issue - the SKY/Yahoo mail password now seems to have synched so no need for constant changes - thank you.
Android issue: My account is set up to receive mail via Freeserve POP3 severs (so I can retain my long standing address) and to send mail via the Sky SMTP servers. All mail to my Sky EMail address is set to store and forward to me via Freeserve. All fine until 3 days ago when all my sent mail backed up in the outbox; incoming mail is still fine.
I have ckecked all SMTP server settings incl port 465 and SSL accept all certs. No mention in any guidelines made of any need for sign-in or subsequent authentication??
Re yr suggestion of using Yahoo App - I did this very simply using Sky credentials at the Yahoo Sign In page with no further input needed. So can now sent EMails but cannt find any way to manually adjust the POP settings for incoming Freeserve mails.
Can you help please??

Thank you so much. Have been trying for days to get my windows mail working with no success. Phone calls to sky did not work either. I just needed to restart my P.C and eureka it was all done. Thank you once again
