Re: Delete my Virginmedia email completely

That depends on whether the email address concerned is set as your primary username for accessing your online account to view bills etc.

If it is then it cannot be deleted, however, if you stop checking the email account the mailbox will eventually be deleted and the email address will continue just as your login route.

If you have a separate primary account then the VM address should be able to be deleted.

Re: Delete my Virginmedia email completely

No I swapped my access email for myVirginmedia ages ago.
I'm really not prepared to stop checking my virginmedia email and wait till it deletes. Its absolutely full of spam and last time VM email was hacked VM gave away my contacts. So everyone else gets spam directed thorough my VM email too. I've had to ask friends and family to ignore/delete any emails they get from me from my VM email

I just want it deleted

If it isn't your primary username then the Forum Team should be able to arrange for it to be deleted.  They will contact you via this forum in the next day or so.

Re: Delete my Virginmedia email completely

Hi thenuns,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us in our community I am sorry you are getting loads of spam in you inbox, I appreciate you have changed which email you use to sign in with and which one we contact you on, if this is the original one we gave you the primary one we will be unable to delete it.

 

Regards

 

Paul.
