Error message is as follows:
The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'Test', Account: 'Steve',
Server: 'smtp.sky.tools.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No,
Socket Error: 10061, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

This is driving me absolutely crackers and has wasted about 5 hours of my
life. Any help would be hugely appreciated.

According to Sky's instructions:
http://mysky.sky.com/portal/site/sk...6e22-4418-84bf-f57631d43f9c&articleId=3075710
you should be using port 465 with SSL for the outgoing mail server.
