I have been unable to access my ntlworld email box since late March.
I have followed all virgin media suggestions regarding this ongoing problem and still nothing is changing the situation.
The error message received when trying to access my emails via the virgin media link remains the same. Even a phone calls resulted in an unsatisfactory response, advising me that it is a recognised and ongoing issue but one that engineers have not been able to rectify.
I also received a letter today telling me to change my password (yet again) due to a potential compromised account. All to no avail. I still have no access to my email box.
Now in July, I would like to be advised of how I will be able to receive access to my emails - which belong to me and surely represent and qualify as my personal data and confidential property.
Is it lawfully right that virgin media can in effect deny me access to my emails that they hold in their domain?
Thank you for reading. Any firm assistance that you can provide will be gratefully embraced!
I too am having same problem if I try to access my Vigin Media through a web browser. I was without emails for over a week when finally Virgin support reset my password and I was then able to access them through my email app on my smartphone. Virgin support tried to tell me forbidden error on web browser was my laptop fault and referred me to Gadget Rescue! I was quoted one off cost £60. The other alternative was to change my password again, I asked why when it works on email App and refused this option.
Luckily I tried my smartphone web browser before contacting Gadget Rescue and wasting my money. I got the same error message so then I knew it wasn't my laptop fault. I am really surprised that such a large company has a support team who don't know what they are doing or saying. I am very disappointed with the support so far after numerous phone calls and a complaint letter. It is obvious from this forum that Virgin have a problem so why don't their staff know and why haven't they been told how to properly resolve this?
Welcome also to our Community and thanks for your first post - sorry that you're having some issues accessing the emails via a web-browser. Can you advise how you are having issues? Is this via webmail or a 3rd party email client?
Can you advise the exact error message you are getting when attempting to access via your laptop?
If you are still able to access your emails in all ways apart from on one device and have refused to reset the password again, then yes, it may have been recommended to try Gadget Rescue as they assist with 3rd party equipment such as laptops which we are unable to assist you with.
We did have some email issues late last month - these were posted on our Forums and were also listed on impacted accounts. If no note was on your account then this wouldn't be linked to that particular issue.
If you're still having issues after resetting the password again, pop back and let us know.
