I have been a virgin media customer for a very long time (even since before NTL) - I have e-mail addresses ending in ntlworld.com and also an old one ending in virgin.net.
I use both of these e-mails regularly, and receive e-mails to my virgin.net e-mail address, so I know it's still working. However I'm trying to set up e-mail accounts on a new computer, and it's not recognizing the password that I *thought* I had set on the virgin.net account.
So I went to mail.virgin.net (which I used to occasionally use for web-based access to this account) and was directed to virginmedia.com. This gave me the option to reset my password - great solution, I thought, but then *every* password I choose gives me the message "You can't use that password. Please choose another." It's not just a bug, as I've tried logging in with rejected password(s) to no avail.
I have searched these forums and found a few people with similar issues - most solutions seem to be "it's an old account; you can't do this" (but the account is currently working correctly on another computer) or "I'll DM you to sort this out". So I'd be grateful if someone at Virgin Media could do that, or suggest how I can resolve this issue and access that e-mail address...
@LiamE1 Are either of these email addresses your primary email address that you use to log into your primary My Virgin Media account to check your latest VM broadband account bills?
If they are secondary accounts are they listed under the manage other my Virgin Media accounts when looking at the Update Settings> Account details tab?
I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media, I'm a VM customer. There are no guarantees that my advice will work. Please read the FAQs
