There was a broadband issue last week when I was unable to access the internet via PC, mobile or TV. Virginmedia admitted a fault in the area and internet/broadband was restored the same afternoon. However, since then, I have been unable to download my main account's emails onto Outlook. I receive error 0x800CCC0E, indicating Outlook cannot connect to the server.
The email account's IMAP/SMTP settings haven't changed and are in accordance with your web page 'How do I update my Virgin Media Mail settings in Outlook?'. I have tried updating my password, but then get the message that the server rejected my login.
Strangely, I have a secondary email account which is working fine with the same settings (though different email address and password, of course.)
I can still access my emails from the Virginmedia website, so this isn't a disaster. But it is a pain! Advice on how to correct the issue would be appreciated.
The last one of these I dealt with (on Saturday) had an error in the server name settings. So I am going to ask you to check those again. Server names please. But while you are doing that i am going ask the Forum Team to take a look at your mailbox and see if there an issue on the VM mail client servers. That is not a quick fix. The team will ask you for information via our private message system but will indicate this in this thread.
@ModTeam - could you get VM IT to look at the mailbox please.
As a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share my knowledge. I don't work for Virgin Media.
I think the server name settings are fine. Incoming is imap.virginmedia.com (account type is IMAP) and outgoing is smtp.virginmedia.com. (These were copy/paste, so are exactly what are in the settings.
