Mailbox unavailable

My VM mailbox is saying unavailble. Advice is to reset password, which I can't do as I can't sign in to the mailbox to use the reset link.

How do I get this fixed?

Re: Mailbox unavailable

@dougt147 You don't need access to the mailbox in order to change the password.

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

Hi Graham

 

Thanks for reply - I've managed to reset my password using the info you provided, however I still get "mailbox unavailable" when I log in. Is there anything further I could try, do you know?

Re: Mailbox unavailable

Maybe worth trying again to access the email later this evening as some have reported that it can take a while for the password change to percolate through the VM servers. Otherwise, @dougt147  The VM Forum Team will need to pick this one up to assist you further.

They probably won't reach this thread until tomorrow now.

Re: Mailbox unavailable

One more thing before I send a private message, @dougt147

Could you please clear your browsing history and cache or alternatively use a different browser?  You'd be surprised how often that works.  Please let me know how that goes.  If that does not work, I will send you a private message.

Regards

Re: Mailbox unavailable

Hi Lee

 

Thanks for the reply - yes I've tried that too, but still no luck. I think my mailbox is locked for some reason. Would appreciate any further assistance you can offer.
