Not receiving Email from Plusnet on ntlworld account

Hi,

 

I have an account with Plusnet for my mobile phone. Recently I have tried to reset my password on their server, but didn't receive the password reset links on my ntlworld account. I asked them to temporarily change my email address on the account to a different account and it worked. Since then I switched back to my ntlworld address and I am still not receiving messages from Plusnet. They informed me that this is an issue with the ntlworld email server and to contact you.

Are you receiving messages on that email account from other senders, just not from Plusnet?

As far as I am aware, I am receiving all other email sent to ntlworld, but I can't be certain.

Yep, in my client and on the server - they are definitely not getting to my account.

By on the server, I mean in web mail.

I think you need to check with Plusnet that they are sending to the right address.

I also have a Plusnet mobile phone account but the email address it uses is my Gmail account. Here's what I have just done :

  1. Changed my Plusnet account to use my ntlworld address.
  2. Then I went through Plusnet's online reset password process.
  3. I did not receive a reset email in my ntlworld address but I did receive an SMS message with the password reset link on my mobile.
  4. I then changed my Plusnet account back to my Gmail address and went through the password reset process again.
  5. Almost immediately I received an SMS message with the reset link.
  6. After about 5 minutes I received the reset email in my Gmail account.

So my experience confirms that there does seem to be an issue with VM email accounts not receiving Plusnet emails.

It would be useful to know what evidence the Plusnet email support staff have to back up their statement to you that"this is an issue with the ntlworld email server". For example are they getting rejection or error messages back from the VM server?

In the meantime I will escalate this to VM Forum Team (VM employees who support this forum) for them to pass this issue on to the the IT security team.

Re: Not receiving Email from Plusnet on ntlworld account

Hi @JoeMcG

Welcome to the community!

Sorry to hear that you're having issues receiving Plus Net emails. 
Does adding the PlusNet email address to your webmail address book allow the email to be received? By adding it to an allow-list/whitelist  should prevent this from happening as it'll know it's a known (and thus safe) sender. 
Let me know if this has worked for you, if not we'll investigate further.
