Re: Can,t log in to my blueyonder email address

try logging in via:

https://mail.blueyonder.co.uk

 

if that does not work, check here:

https://ipauth.virginmedia.com/SSO_BLUEYONDER/servlet/StartupServlet

to see whetehr your blueyonder address is actually a secondary alias (i.e. not the first to have been created), and which is the associated primary alias (aka username) for the acount.

Hi Slated..

 

Thankyou for the info and the https://mail.blueyonder.co.uk link.

 

When I log in to VM mail through the homepage Email "Tab"  I get the login and enter the email and password and it seems to go well but then i get a Google Apps service error page.

I came in here looking for help and read your reply.

When I cicked on the mail.blueyonder link I was redirected directly to the email account I had logged into.

I didn't realise at the time I was still logged in to my VM email account. As this is my main account I was also logged into My VM.

 

I can see this as a serious security issue to account holders as you can see from the image there is a log out link on the top right of the page but it's very small and i can see account holders missing this. I didn't see it untill I went back to the screen shot as my page wasn't full screen at time I logged in.

 

Account holders using computers that are away from home might leave the page in a logged in state.
