Mailbox not available at the moment

My wife has been unable to access her VM mailbox for over a week. Called 150 many times , no joy, found a text number and messaged that, still no luck. Changed password successfully but same message above.  Can anybody help please?  (She cant post here herself as to join the forum she needs to have her email address verified.....and cant access them!....hence my post)

Re: Mailbox not available at the moment

Hello Ianwain

We can help with this but we would need to deal with the named account holder

Its regarding data protection as we need to keep accounts secure 

You can ask your wife to set up a new email account, say gmail so she can then join this Forum

Re: Mailbox not available at the moment

@Ianwain Gareth is, of course, spot on with his comments about account ownership, however, it isn't clear from your post if your wife is the account holder with your address being the secondary one, or if it is the other way round, with you being the account holder having set a secondary account for your wife to use.

Re: Mailbox not available at the moment

Good Morning Ianwain,

 

As you're the account holder we'll seek to go into the account and see if we can make the appropriate changes.

 

Is your Wife's E-Mail address the primary E-Mail address on the account or is this a secondary account?

 

Kindest regards,
