    Adding sky email to gmail 9th Nov 19 at 5:48 PM
    Hi there,

    I have been able to pick up my sky email through gmail without any problems for ages, as I have more than one email account.

    All of a sudden gmail stopped checking the account - I have tried deleting and re-adding the account using the instructions on my sky account (yahoo), but it comes up with an error.

    I have changed my sky email password - it lets me log in directly via sky, but won't add to my gmail account.

    Is anyone else having issues please?

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to generate a new mail app password and use that to sign in with, not "your" password for your Sky account.

    This is not unique to Sky, this is a Yahoo Mail change.
