Not receiving password reset email

Joining in

I had a message from VM stating my email login was compromised and to reset my password, and I can get as far as Step 2 in the online guide but in keeping with other users never receive the verification email from VM so as to activate my third-party mailbox app. It means I am locked out of all my VM emails. This is most frustrating.

Please help.

Hi @DespairingAndy 

Welcome to the community forums 

Sorry to hear you're having issues with access your email at this time. 

Can I just clarify - Are you able to access your online Virgin Media account at all? If so, you may need to reset app password so you can access your mail on a 3rd party app/mail app. Or is it that you're not receiving this app password reset request?

Here to help 🙂

Thank you Carly


I was not getting the verification email for the app password reset, until........ I opened a gmail web based email account and then after a couple of tries I received the new password in a popup. It is not an intuitive nor straightforward process, though. 

Without sharing my situation here and awaiting a reply - thank you for that - there seems no other means of support for email issues. TV, broadband, mobile issues seem to generate an IA WhatsApp response, but only if TV, broadband etc. I have sorted it now though but it has been a frustrating few days.


Thank you
