Ntlworld email fails to send via WiFi through hub

Tuning in

Our email accounts ( will not send via our Virgin hub. They fail both from our mobiles using WiFi and from the desktop with the wired connection. The mobiles both send ok if mobile data is used. It doesn't seem to matter which mobile app is being used. Using webmail seems to be OK

Hi Robin115, 

Thanks for using the Community Forums to get this issue with your email/WIFI looked into, I am sorry if this has been causing some frustration 😥 I would be more than happy to look into this for you!

I'd like to eliminate the possibility of the connection being the cause of this email issue first before moving onto anything else. 

Are you having any connection issues with any other aspect? 

WIFI issues usually manifest as the below - 

  • Buffering whilst trying to stream videos through apps such as Facebook, Youtube, Netflix etc. 
  • WIFI symbol changing to a data symbol on your handsets (Due to the WIFI completely disconnecting from your phone)
  • The Hub showing any lights other than the normal constant white light. 
  • Speed tests showing a slow speed below 30mbps over WIFI connections, try doing a speed test here - Speed Test - Post the result here if you want 🙂

Please let us know if you've experienced anything like these aspects and we'll continue to help!
