Rejoined Virgin Media and want to reconnect my old email address

HI i left VM a few years back but my vm email address is still active. I've now rejoined VM and want to connect my account to my email address but the functionality is only to setup a new address. When I try and enter my old it tells me its taken.  i'm hoping VM can do this at the back end. Anyone else been through this successfully?

This may be possible through a Move and Transfer process.  The Forum Team will be able to advise further.

For the process to work the previous email address needs to be still active but the account it is connected to be disconnected.  In most circumstances the account holder name needs to be the same on both accounts.

If successful the process will wipe out any email addresses already set up on the new account.

It will likely take a day or two for the team to reach this, especially given the bank holiday weekend, but they will pick it up.
