How can I stop getting emails on my old account?

On our wavelength

I left Virgin sometime around May 2022.  I'd been with them since they bought out NTL in the early 2000s
I still had the NTL email address.  I can no longer sign into the virgin account to contact support.
However, my old email address is still fully functional via a third party.  I can still receive and send emails via Thunderbird.   Some time ago, it seems, a number of databases were hacked, and my old email address was scooped up and is now being spammed, spoofed, and generally the recipient of various scam attempts and identity thefts attempts.  How can I have the email account deleted to stop the account being used and abused?  I can't directly contact Virgin support because, as I said, I no longer have an account.

Thank you so much for your post and welcome back to the community forums, it's great to have you here.

I am so sorry that you have faced this issue with your email, we would be happy to take a look but as the email is no longer linked to a current and active broadband account or we can action is the complete deletion of the account. 

I will pop you a private message so we can take a look into this, please keep an eye out for the envelope at the top of your screen alerting you to a new message.
