Re: Change my primary account name

I don't believe it can be changed at the moment.
This may be possible once the other email migration problems have been solved.
i.e. LATER than this http://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Email/Email-Domain-Change-for-blueyonder-co-uk-and-NTLworld-com/...

Re: Change my primary account name

windy10, if you only joined 2 weeks ago then the legacy email domain names issue won't be relevant.

 

If you don't like your email address then just create one you do like. You can't delete or change the 'primary' one, but neither do you have to use it (except for logging in to My Virgin Media in order to manage your account).

Re: Change my primary account name

If it's just a jumble of letters then you most likely haven't yet created a primary e-mail address

 

All you should need to do is log into My Virgin Media using the details you have and then go to 'Manage Household Accounts' to create a login you want to use
