So what error message, if any, do you see when you sign into those affected email accounts directly via  the Virgin Media Webmail site using this link https://mail2.virginmedia.com/  ?

If you can sign in without a problem are you able to send and receive emails using Webmail? If you can we know it's not a problem with the email accounts themselves and we need to look elsewhere.

Thanks for that. It means the account has been locked by Virgin Media. All I can suggest is that you follow VM's advice given here: https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Email/Email-accounts-locked-mailbox-unable-unable-to-access-ema... 

The other image you have posted is the error that an email app will give in this situation.

Re: Emails can’t send or receive VM emails

Hi dutts,

Welcome to the Community Forums! Thanks for your first post.

I'm sorry to hear that you've been unable to access your email account since changing your package, this should just be a coincidence.

Can you please confirm if you have followed the steps detailed in the link provided by ceonoby? If so, we can go from there 🙂

Kind regards

Beth
