Hi- my Mum’s email address is not being recognised. We’ve tried accessing it via Virgin media’s website, answered security questions and the account has been ‘found’ - but trying to enter it and the password gets the same response- username not recognised .
Yesterday the email was working fine then it seemed to stop working- some error message about the server not being recognised. Since then we’ve just gone round in circles trying to log in
Can nobody from Virgin Media respond? We tried phoning your helpline and have had our question sent to your technical help desk but we’re told they will phone is back ‘in 2-3 days’
this is annoying cos the household is isolating with covid symptoms, we need to access email to order a food / toiletries delivery from sainsburys asap. My mum’s email was working fine up to lunchtime on Monday, then the error messages started
I’ve seen lots of similar queries posted here, after I posted my message, and they have had responses and offers to help from Virgin Media staff. My identical problem is still unresolved (and no one has replied)
Please can someone reply and ideally give details of an admin person I can message to discuss further? Thank you
Can you clarify, is it your account or your Mum's? If it's your Mum's then we'll need to get her to either post on here on her own forum account as it's something only an account holder can do, or call us on 150 / 0345 454 1111 and we can assist further.
Hi John- the account is my Mum’s but she’s not very tech savvy, hence me trying to help and joining this forum on her behalf.
I have covid symptoms, she is in her 80s and shielding so I’m wary of getting her to handle my iPhone (the device I’m using to access this forum) and /or having to stand nearby to explain to her how to type in and post messages in a thread.
we’ll try the phone line you suggest but are not hopeful since I know your IT help desk will be affected by staff shortages
PS another thought- my Mum can’t create her own discussion thread here about her problem, since first she’d have to join the forum and to do that (to verify her registration) she needs access to her email!
