can't gain access to yahoo mail

For the last couple of days I have got the message 'You can no longer create a new Yahoo Mail account via Sky'.  I have cleared the cache and tried logging on via Sky.com but still get this message.  Any help would be appreciated.

Re: can't gain access to yahoo mail

Posted by a Superuser, not a Sky employee. Find out more

Can install the Outlook app and use these settings with it to see if you can access your emails:


Select either "Other" or "Not Yahoo" then use these settings:

Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server

Server - imap.tools.sky.com
Port - 993
Requires SSL - Yes

Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server

Server - smtp.tools.sky.com
Port - 465
Requires SSL - Yes
Requires authentication - Yes

You will then need to generate a 16 digit password and hopefully this link will work for you as you need to use that instead of your usual one, you can do that here:
