Re: Closure of former-customer email accounts

Yes, unfortunately there are a number of posts in this thread that do not relate to the original topic.  Users can get locked out of their accounts for several reasons not just that in post one.  In any case, the notifications referred to in post one would not lead to accounts being closed before mid April at the earliest.

Re: Closure of former-customer email accounts

if you are no longer a VM customer access is lost and can't be restored. you should contact the hospital and update the email contact

Re: Closure of former-customer email accounts

I am a Virgin media customer though. I have my phone tv and broadband from them and have done for about 20 years. Which is why this is so annoying.

Re: Closure of former-customer email accounts

Hi David, 

If you're still a Virgin Media customer then you won't be impacted, this is only for former customers that have cancelled their services with us.

Re: Closure of former-customer email accounts

well we have been unable to get into our email account for several days, we keep getting the message "mailbox unavailable" When I called 150 and finally got to speak to aomeone I was told they couldn't help because the email account in question is not is not the one virgin have registered for our account which doesnt make sense to me as obviously only one email is necessary for communication. We have been Virgin customers for probably 20 years but wont be for much longer if this situation is not cleared up.

Re: Closure of former-customer email accounts

Hi David,

Are you able to log into your online account with no issues?

If so, is the email showing on there?

Re: Closure of former-customer email accounts

Okay, thank you for your patience with my questions, I may have a way forward to getting this fixed for you. 

I'm going to create an IT ticket so the Tech team can have a look at this.

First I need to send you a PM so we can chat about account specifics.

Look for it in the purple envelope on the right hand side.

Speak soon.
