  • Hi,

    You need to genearting yourself a 16 digit code (app password)  here . You will then need to enter this code in Outlook 2016 instead of the usual email password that it uses for your Sky email account.

    For more details about how to create the 16 digit code(app password), please refer to: Add an email account to Outlook. (Slide to the end: Outlook won't accept my password)

    Hope this can be helpful.

    Regards,
