Issue with my access to emails (ntlworld)

Joining in

Following a recent security lock by Virgin Media on my emails and after several long phone calls to try and get sorted, I am still having difficulty getting access back to where it was before.

I can now get access to my emails on my ipad, only using the Safari browser, but not on my HP laptop using Microsoft Edge.

I still am not able to change my password even on my ipad (the screen doesn't "continue" after the security questions)

Is anyone able to tell me what is going on and how I can get access on laptop? Also, any ideas how to update my password on my ipad? 

Thamk you

Hello Zach, I have no idea what is going on. When I log into my virginmedia website on my laptop (via microsoft edge), there is an option to check my emails. This leads to be to a screen saying "my email box is not available at the moment" (This same message when it was locked)

I rang the telephone helpdesk a few times, they changed my password which initially worked but if I logged out, I couldn't log back in again.

However when I logged onto my ipad using Safari (on the instructions of the telephone helpdesk), I can access my emails. Google chrome isn't helping on my ipad.

I can not change my password on Safari (the team members provided the original password). When I go through the security checks DOD and memorable data, the screen doesn't continue forward.

I have run Virus check on my laptop and can't find any issues.

The helpdesk team have twice referred my to IT suppport, but heard nothing.




Hi @Hugosdad,

Thanks for explaining this further. If your password has been reset you should be able to log in usually. 

Could you try clearing cookies/cache and browsing history to see if this helps?

Let us know so we can offer further support if needed.
