Email help

spent all day trying to contact VM  finally got on chat after 7 hours only to be told they can't help with email and the nice lady (not) then cut me off, Me primary email address is down or at least I am locked out, this is the message I get on webmail

 

Your mailbox is not available at the moment.

Please retry again in one hour and make sure you are using the correct password to access your email from all of your devices.

If the problem continues, please call our team for help on 150 from a Virgin Media phone or mobile, or 0345 454 1111 from any other phone and select option 2. For details about how much it costs to call our team from a Virgin Media home phone, visit virginmedia.com/callcosts.

Re: Email help

This could be caused by a number of reasons.  Is the address linked to your current VM broadband account?

Or, it may have been locked for security reasons.

The Forum Team will ask you to change the password on the account. You may need to use Forgotten Password:

Re: Email help

This is by far the best place to get VM support for issues like this.  The Forum Team should get to this thread soon and will be able to help you.
