Re: Changing Email Address

If the ntlworld email address(es) are linked to the broadband account about to be terminated then options are:

  • use the 90 days grace period Virgin Media provide before permanent deletion of the email address to manage it via an email client
  • sign into webmail and select ☰ > Settings > ▸ Email and edit Holiday Notice and/or Auto Forward

    Personal preference would be the former as it provides more control.

However if it is not linked then it could be deleted at anytime or become inaccessible should any event triggering lockout occur, i.e. suspicious activity.

After the 90 day grace period lapses do make sure to check that Virgin Media has deleted it.

Re: Changing Email Address

Hi @Honor1

Welcome to our Community Help Forums 🙂

Thanks for making your first post regarding setting up an out of office reply, I'm sorry to hear we can't bring our services to your new home. That is a shame.

To set up an out of office reply:

- Sign in to your NTL email account

- Select the three bar menu

- Go to 'Settings'

- Go to 'Email'

- Go to 'Holiday Notice' or 'Auto Forward'

If you experience any further issues, please do let me know.

Kind regards,

Serena

Re: Changing Email Address

Hello Honor1

Personally I would go for Auto reply 

That way it will stay active until the email account gets disabled
