I don't like to be the bearer of bad news.
However, if you are no longer a Virgin Media broadband customer it is very likely that the email account has been, or is in the course of, being closed down by Virgin Media. That crops up quite regularly on this forum.
VM's terms and conditions do make it clear that in order to use of a VM email account you need to be a broadband customer. See section D 6 here https://www.virginmedia.com/legal/fibre-optic-services-terms-conditions#broadband
In practise VM often seem to leave email accounts open for years before they get round to closing them and that seems to be the cased here. This often causes unnecessary confusion because people then think that the email account will remain open indefinitely. Also, VM never seem to give any warning before closing the account,
One of the Forum Team (VM employees who support this forum) will contact you via this thread in a day or so. It is sometimes possible for them to restore temporary access to an account to allow any information (contacts etc) stored in the account to be downloaded. The Forum Team will advise you on whether that is possible in your case.
