Mail box is unavailable - need emails urgently.

Hi,

Hoping someone can help? 

I have not been able to gain access to my main NTL email for the past 3 days via iOS or directly through Virginmedia home page. I get a reply saying mail box is unavailable. 

I have a couple of really important emails I need to see and respond to ASAP. I’ve changed my password via my profile page which I can get into but it hasn’t  helped. 

Nothing has changed so I’m at a loss to what’s happened? 

I've attached a photo.

Many thanks

Re: Can’t access Blueyonder email account

I'm getting the same but a ntlworld.com account. It's been off most of the day, told me to change the password, which I've done 3 times.

Rang up but did not help, told me to wait 20 minutes after the password change. Broadband going on and off too. Not a very happy customer at all!

Re: Email nightmare

Same here but ntlworld email. I changed the password 3 times. Called and not much help either, told me to wait 20 minutes and try again. Broadband has been on and off too but no known issues in the area. Not happy at all as waiting for an important email.

Re: Email nightmare

Thanks, it is the same problem as I had in August, which miraculously mended itself. I've had no emails since this morning. 

I have a MacBook and iPhone and cannot get on to my email with either. I've also tried via webmail and have signed out of all the accounts. I've run a malware programme and all is clean. I've tried on Safari and Chrome. I've even tried deleting the account and setting it back up. 

I have changed the password 4 times now via "my profile" as the first sticky post says to do and then I've waited for an hour but nothing happens.

I spoke to customer service and they said there was nothing wrong with the account and to change it again and wait 20mins (which I'd been doing anyway!). He wanted to speak to my husband who wasn't with me even though I gave the correct password and the subscription is from my bank account. 

Would be grateful for some help, expecting an important email regarding travel. 

I've attached the error message from webmail and the mail app.

Re: Email nightmare

Hi lottie46, 

Thanks for coming back to us on this one. 

If we were asking to speak to your husband, it sounds as though he may be the account holder. If this is the case then even if you have passed DPA, there will be some things that we can only do with the account holder. 

There was an issue which was resolved yesterday so even though you have changed the password previously, I would advise changing it once more. Please make sure it is a totally unique password that has never been used for the account before. Once you've updated the password, wait an hour (as the error message advises) before trying to log in. This should give the system enough time to reset. 

If you are then still unable to log in, get your husband to contact us and we can raise this further. 

Keep us posted on how you get on.

Thanks,

Kath_F
