Three weeks ago my blueyonder email account was accessed by someone else and an automatic forwarding rule was set up on my account. This has now been removed and I have been trying to get back to normal. All equipment has been virus scanned and I have reset the password several times.
When logging in to my emails on my smartphone, I was asked to sign in and was shown the Sync Options incoming page details. I signed in with the new password, proceeded to the outgoing server settings page and put in the new password again and confirmed, but then received the following message " Couldn't finish - Can't connect to server - (525 5.7.13 Authentication denied VM 303"
I can receive emails in my webmail and on my phone, but not on my PC.
I can send emails from my Virgin media account and receive them on my phone, but not on my PC. I can't send emails from either my phone or my PC.
Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated but I have a relatively low level of computer knowledge and vocabulary, so advice needs to be fairly simple.
Good account of the problem. Excellent you got and reported the VM303 error code. Haven't seen that one in ages. It's only solvable by VM IT. It means that the VM servers think those accounts affected have been deleted from the VM back-end servers that hold the account details. They haven't really. It's a serious glitch. Wait here for the VM staff to pick up and get a ticket raised. Should be with you in a day or so. Sometimes quicker. Nothing else you can do. Simple enough for you? Don't underestimate yourself, your knowledge or your ability to report the issue as it should be reported.

After my email account was accessed I have changed passwords several times, but when I try to set up my email I receive an error message VM 303 on the Outgoing Server Settings page.
I am unable to send emails although I can receive them. A helpful contributor on the Community suggested that this could only be resolved by VM IT staff, and I thought he had requested that they contact me, but I haven't heard anything for nearly a week.
I really need to resolve this but don't know how to contact them.
