I have not been able to send or receive emails via my sky account for months now.

I now have a new account and want to get rid of the sky account all together.

How do I do this??

Re: How do I close my sky email account?

I left mine dormant for 8 months and its still active...i read on the forum you can contact them and ask for them to delete it so i tried that this week...no joy im afraid they told me they cant delete yahoo email accounts...also tried a few times doing it via yahoo but they wont let me delete either....very odd.

Re: How do I close my sky email account?

I suspect the process for closing email accounts is not well understood among Sky call handlers. Sadly I can only suggest trying again, in the hope that you get an adviser who knows what needs to be done.

Will do Mark...but honestly its like pulling out your own teeth dealing with sky on this issue. It's not like I'm asking for something unreasonable!

Whilst it shouldn't be necessary, raising a formal complaint might be a solution, and maybe will improve the process for others in the future.

The old Yahoo account delete option never worked for sky.com addresses, this one doesn't work either (it produces this error message).

Re: How do I close my sky email account?

There is some confusion over this fircwhich apologies are offered this is the official information :

* We do have a process, where a customer can contact us and ask for their mailbox to be deleted.  We would ask that customers only request this, once they've moved/forwarded on any emails, content and contacts out of their mailbox as we cannot reinstate it.  We do have a process for colleagues to follow in the contact centre knowledge base 'Delete a Sky Yahoo! Mail account.'  This can only be completed by the email account holder contacting us on 03442 411 599.  This is the recommended way to ensure the mailbox is deleted.

* We periodically close mail accounts that haven't been logged into/used and will always advise in advance if this is to be completed by emailing our customers contact email address we have for their account.  There is not a fixed timetable for when this may happen as we conduct this in batches if necessary.
