I'm getting this OX app log in page when trying to access my older emails received, tried downloading the uninstaller, no sign of the OX app on my PC, so can't remove it. I can still send and receive emails as normal, just can't access older emails on the Virgin site, nor do anything else to do with emails I'm running Firefox on Win 7 pro 64 bit.
I can access Virgin Media home page but when I click Email the address line changes to mail2.Virginmedia.com/appsuite/ followed by a further string
I'm on Firefox, not Chrome, however I was able to block cookies as mentioned in your post, the OX app sign on still appears but now with a message re cookies turned off, please turn them on (I did a copy/paste of the address bar when blocking cookies)
What does OX app do anyway? Everything else to do with Email seems to work same as ever, I just need to check some data on an email from February which I deleted from my PC a couple of months back, I usually keep emails about 6 months except bills/invoices which I archive.
To answer your last question first. It doesn't matter that you're a former ntlworld.com customer, all webmail is accessed via mail2.virginmedia.com (although mail.virginmedia.com, mail.ntlworld.com, mail.blueyonder.co.uk and mail.virgin.net will redirect to it anyway).
ntlworld has never been part of the 'Virgin Empire' what happened was ntl/telewest bought Virgin Mobile from Richard Branson and also brokered a licensing deal allowing the use of the Virgin brand. Virgin Media has been owned by the Liberty Global group since 2013.
With regards to OX App. It's the platform that Virgin Media uses to deliver webmail. Normally when you go to mail2.virginmedia.com, one of the first things that happens is that you are redirected to Virgin Media's single sign on system, and once logged in you're sent back to your Mailbox. Occasionally when things go wrong you end up on the default OX Apps login screen (which won't recognise your credentials - so don't try logging in).
Clearing (not blocking) the existing cookies normally fixes this.

Already done that - manage data, all it does is change the error message to not available at the moment, also tried manage exceptions only difference is the error message tells me that cookies are disabled, please enable them.
I've tried using a new user name and password, still no change; when did this OX start I don't often need to access email on the Virgin pages; any other suggestions? is there a downloadable OX app I note in one of the earlier posts above that 4 files should be on the PC, no sign of them that I can find on mine.
