Mailbox Unavailable ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ

For the past 48hrs I'm seeing the oh so helpful error message:

"Your mailbox is not available at the moment

Please retry again in one hour and make sure you are using the correct password to access your email from all of your devices."

My understanding has always been that error usually means the email account has been locked by Virgin Media and normally needs attention from VM to re-enable it.

Already called VM but they haven't rectified the issue in their promised timescale of 4 to 24hrs ๐Ÿ˜. Really need to access mailbox as expecting crucial emails. 

 

Therefore can someone re-enable my mailbox immediately!

 

Thanks in anticipation of getting the service I pay for.

Re: Mailbox Unavailable ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ™ƒ

Hey Everyone, 

Glad I found this post. I have recently had the exact same issue with a secondary account that's been active and used daily for too many years to remember. Any chance I can get a rep to help out reactivate it, as going through 150 does not go anywhere and I'm missing extremely time-critical emails.

"mailbox unavailable, please try again in an hour" is the error.
