My wife had an issue with her email account last month due to her account being locked as it was sending SPAM. After a week it was resolved by someone resetting her password for her.
This time, there has been no notification about SPAM being issued but she is getting all the same error messages "no password in server settings" and unable to login to my myvirginmedia etc as username and password is not being recognised.
Can someone please help with this as my wife is in communication with recruiters as she is being made redundant in 7 weeks so needs to be able to access her emails.
I'll repeat what I said earlier - THIS IS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE PASSWORD.
I've replicated this error myself by sending mail I expected to trigger VM's outgoing spam filters from my iPad. It's a bug in the way the iPad/iPhone deals with an SMTP error in the final stage of the email send.
If you try sending via a different email client, it may show the actual error from the server.
My recommendation - as email is critical to your wife at this time, is to get a Gmail or Outlook.com address and let the recruiters know the new email address.
VM's record at managing their email servers spam filtering is woeful to say the least.
The Forum Team will get to the thread and can raise this with the email team, but it's going to take time.

I've tried using the webmail link and my username and password is not being recognised. I have tried resetting my password using bill details telling me not valid bill details (they are), doesn't like my security question answer.
All of these errors are identical to the issues my wife had in June following her account lock and someone called Zoe reset her password from her side and everything has been working well since then.
This issue is occurring again with my wife's email.
She got a new phone and tried to set up her email but continuously gets user name and password error. She has also tried to access her account using webmail and again her account details are not recognised.
Attempting to access using using security answer and bill details etc is also producing the same error.
Not sure why this is happening but seems to do so every few months.
Resetting the password has resolved the issue on the previous two occasions so can someone please reset the password again please?
