I am very sorry to hear that you're having a bit of trouble accessing your email account. Are you able to sign into your My Virgin Media online account?

Re: Username/ password not recognised

Hello

Are you still a Virginmedia broadband customer as if you are not then normally the email accounts are deleted after 90 days of leaving (as per the T&C) although some do stay around for a lot longer ?

Thanks for your reply @Meganp.

 

As @DJ_Shadow1966 asked, are you still a Virgin Media broadband customer at the moment?

 

 

Regards,

Re: Username/ password not recognised

This has just suddenly happened to me whilst in the midst of receiving/forwarding/sending emails this morning on my iPad. I am unable to access my email account via any means, and have had varying error messages, including:

“The provided login data to access e-mail server imap.virginmedia.com seems to be wrong. Please correct them.”

Then later, after a number of attempts:  “Your e-mail account @[REMOVED@ntlworld.com was disabled due to invalid credentials. Please edit the account and enter correct credentials to enable it again.”

I definitely did not alter any password or login data.

Re: Username/ password not recognised

@bradsweb And the same question to you as was asked to the original thread starter; 'are you a current VM broadband customer?'. If you are then you should be able to log into the my.virginmedia.com portal and reset the password for the email account via the instructions in this link.
