Hi Elsunshino,

Thank you for your post, welcome to the Community Forums.

I'm sorry to hear you seem to be having issues with your email account after setting up a new account in your Wife's name. It's likely that your email address is still linked with your now deactive account in your name. If that's the case, it's possible that the email address has been deleted - email addresses not attached to an active account will be deleted any time after 90 days from the disconnection.

We can request to bring over your email address to your Wife's account along with your My Virgin Media credentials, however we'd need to clear security across both accounts in order to do this, which would mean speaking with both you and your Wife directly from here.

Let us know 😊


Hi Beth. I have sent you a PM.
