Old blue yonder email compromised

I left virgin 2 years ago.  Over the last week, a number of people have reported getting spam emails from my old primary account.  I thought this should have been automatically deleted after 5 months.  Anyway how can I get it deleted now? 

Thanks

Ian

It may be a case of spoofing and that the spam emails aren't actually coming from your old account.

That said, the VM Forum Team will be able to check if your old email account is still active and should be able to arrange for it to be properly deleted if necessary.

They will reach this thread in a day or so.

Hi Ian,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to our community 🙂

 

The email address would usually be removed after 90 days, I'm sorry this wasn't the case.

 

I've sent you a private message so I can ensure this removed for you (purple envelope, top right hand corner)
