Depending on the current status of the email account concerned and whether the old and new VM accounts are in the same account holder name - it may be possible for the VM Forum Team to arrange a 'Move and Transfer' of the old account details including the email address to the new account. This process would replace any email addresses set up under the new account.
The VM Forum Team should be able to advise further when they reach this thread in a day or so.

Thanks. Despite what I said in my post about it seemingly being deactivated I have just had some delayed forwarded emails come through so it appears the account still exists, I just no longer have access to it.
