Re: Mailbox unavailable- please help

Hi there @3miracles

 

Thank you so much for your first post to our Community Forums and welcome to the team! It's great to have you here!

 

I am so sorry to see this has happened with your email! Can I ask what error message you get when you try to reset the password yourself? 

 

Thank you.

Re: Mailbox unavailable- please help

I get this message so I cannot access my email account to reset the password  -


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.

If the problem continues, please call our team for help on 150 from a Virgin Media phone or mobile, or 0345 454 1111 from any other phone and select option 2.

Re: Mailbox unavailable- please help

@3miracles  Password resets are done via the My Virgin Media page https://my.virginmedia.com/ not the webmail page.

Sign in to My Virgin Media, go to My Profile and/or Manage Accounts depending on whether the account concerned is your primary account or an additional one. Select the account concerned and then click on Change to the right of password if a primary account or View/Change then change to the right of password for secondary accounts.

Re: Mailbox unavailable- please help

Hello @3miracles,

 

Thank you for letting us know.

 

Is the email that is not working a NTL email or a external email? Hotmail/Gmail etc?

 

Many thanks,

 

Hayley

Hello Hayley

the email is Blueyonder.co.Uk and I access it through virgin webmail. Hope this answers your question - I’m not very tech savvy!
