Re: Emails - how to set up additional email addresses

See How do I create a new Virgin Media email address? however I would strongly urge you not do so because:

  • use of the email account is tied to it being linked to an active Virgin Media  broadband service; i.e. it is permanently deleted 90 days after broadband service is terminated
  • account security will likely be weaker that the service it might be used with and/or help secure
  • lacks any form of multifactor authentication
  • spam filtering is poor; identifying an email as spam or not spam has no impact on its future processing

Re: Emails - how to set up additional email addresses

 Thank you for your reply, and I accept the points that you make. My fundamental problem is that when I set this email thing for my wife. I obviously misunderstood the instructions.In that now Virginmedia have her as me. Ie if I want to check to check my account details etc, I am there in my own right. But my wife is also there if you like as the owner of my account. I suspect that I shall have to go back to Virgin and ask them to first remove the email account I set up in her name. And then reinstate it as an independent email. So that I do not get addressed as Rosemary. Thank you for your time and trouble

Re: Emails - how to set up additional email addresses

Unfortunately if your wife's email account has been set as the primary username for the account then neither you nor Virgin Media will be able to change that.  Once the primary username is set it is embedded  in all the VM sign in systems.
