Re: Emails unavailable

Changing the password solves this in most cases.

Sign in to My Virgin Media, go to My Profile and/or Manage Accounts depending on whether the account concerned is your primary account or an additional one. Select the account concerned and then click on Change to the right of password if a primary account or View/Change then change to the right of password for secondary accounts.

If that hasn't unlocked your account after waiting 15 minutes post back and the VM Forum Team should be able to help you further.

Re: Emails unavailable

Thanks for reply Graham.

Unfortunately the email account I'm referring to isn't in my managed accounts now for some reason? So changing the password isn't an option

In that case you have a potentially more serious issue with the email address concerned.  If it isn't attached to your current VM broadband account then it is classed as orphaned and as such liable to closure by VM at any time.

The VM Forum Team should reach this thread soon and be able to investigate further.

Re: Emails unavailable

I found it where to change password and the account was still attached, and I'm in. But it's a virgin.net so I think its 1 of the orphaned accounts so I'm going to get changed as soon as possible. 

Thanks for your help
