For the last 4 weeks, logging in to my secondary (Ntlworld) account on VM webmail has returned the 'mailbox unavailable' error. This remains the case despite several calls to and fro with VM support and 2 password resets.
Initially, VM said my secondary account wasn't correctly linked to my primary VM account, so they fixed that, but it still didn't work.
At the weekend (5 July), I got a text message to say the issue was resolved. It wasn't.
Then I discovered that login to my primary account, which had been working fine till then, was now failing with a username/password not recognised error. From bad to worse.
So on Monday morning I was back to 150. The agent I spoke to said it would take up to 48 hours to reset both accounts, and he'd call me to confirm if all was OK. I didn't get a call, and the login issues remained
Some good news though - I just tried a password reset on my primary account and it worked! So that just leaves the original 'mailbox unavailable' problem on my secondary account.
Fortunately, I've discovered that the mailbox is accessible via IMAP, but I'm reluctant to independently mess with password reset on that account in case it breaks it.
Apologies for diving in to the Forum now, but it seems that several users have been able to get 'mailbox unavailable' type issues resolved quite promptly by the forum team.
Please could you advise if my case is amenable to such magic dust, or if I have to wait in line again for an IT ticket? If the latter, can you update my status to say the primary account login issue is fixed - or do I need to call 150 for that?
Please someone help me 😭 I have been unable to login to my ntlworld emails for weeks, I have been on here, on the phone, on the silly message chat thing, but still no one has resolved it. They have changed my password for me twice, told me to wait an hour before trying to login (any excuse to get rid of me)...all I get is 'Forbidden' message!!. This is terrible service...why dont they tell us they have problems?? Why do we have to suffer and waste so much time asking them to fix it.... I'm fuming!
In my case, I found I could access my emails via apple mail on an iPad, so it seems the mailbox is there and working, it's just the VM webmail front end that's broken. Your case may be different from mine though.
I suggest you give this a try and add an update on this point on your own thread, it'll help the VM team if all the relevant info is in one place.
