Mailbox unavailable

I am unable to access my emails when i sign into my virgin media account. It says Mailbox unavailable. I have contacted Virgin numerous times regarding this but have no solution and really need to get into my emails as the matter has gone on for a few weeks.

Re: Mailbox unavailable


It is likely that your email account has been locked for security reasons.

If you haven't already done so follow the instructions here:

https://www.virginmedia.com/help/virgin-media-mail-my-email-account-is-locked

If that doesn't work then post back here and the VM Forum Team should be able to help you.

Re: Mailbox unavailable

Thank you Graham i've tried changing user name & password that but it hasn't worked. It says go into Menu & Settings but there's nowhere for that & if i go onto email it just re-iterates my mailbox is unavailable and nowhere to select Auto Foward (that i can see anyway).

Thanks for your help though, hopefully VM Forum Team will come forward to help me.

The above suggests that you have skipped step 2 and gone straight to step 3.  However, best wait for the VM Forum Team to respond in a day or so as the password reset alone will probably not resolve the issue.

Re: Mailbox unavailable

Graham as you have kindly responded to my question i wondered if you know how long it takes for the VM forum team to respond as this is now a matter of some urgency. I have not used this forum before so am unsure of time scales.

Re: Mailbox unavailable

Current response times on this part of the forum are around two to three days from posting.  As you have been messed around by telephone support I will escalate the thread.  That should expedite a reply from the VM Forum Team.

Re: Mailbox unavailable

This issue has now gone on for 6 wks. I have made 40 calls to Virgin many over 2hrs being passed around. The issue has been passed to IT 3 times, the last one 10 days ago. I am still no further forward with it. Is there anyone who can help me with this as it is imperative i can access my emails obviously.

We will certainly do everything we can to have this resolved for you as soon as we possibly can

Re: Mailbox unavailable

David I have spoken to 40 different colleagues from the Virgin team and up to now none have been able to resolve this issue over 6 wks. 

I have now had a 4th ticket raised to IT and yet again have to wait another 5-7 days for a response which I haven't received from the past 3 attempts.

I have been informed a manager would telephone me and I waited by my phone for 4 hrs so I wouldn't miss his call and he/she didn't make contact.

I am coming into my 7th week of this issue so am running out of options as it would also appear no-one on this community forum can help either.

I am very disappointed and understandably extremely frustrated by the whole matter.
