Sorry! Your mailbox is not available at the moment

I have multiple emails but one is not working, assume its locked.

I was half way through setting up an account online and noticed email not accessible when i went to check for a validation email 😞 

Tried the reset password trick but no dice.

Ok a bit more info, after looking over the forums and running a test it would seem the error is
525 5.7.13 Authentication Denied (VM304) and its a secondary address created years ago (not a new one)

Re: Sorry! Your mailbox is not available at the moment

Hi @donnie74, thanks for your post and I'm sorry that you're having issues accessing your secondary email.

Firstly, how are you trying to access the email in question, is it through your My Virgin Media account (via Webmail), or through an email client such as Outlook?

If you're having problems through a client, please let me know if you can access it through Webmail.

Regards

Re: Sorry! Your mailbox is not available at the moment

Ened up phoning support, 45mins in queue, 15mins on with support and as im not account holderapparently was authorised to created a ticket?  I am named on the account and do all the changes to package etc on behalf of eldery parent being the account holder.

Tried to get me to request an account change to myself and then phone them back to start over, short argument later and 3 way call with with me/parent/support finally they made a ticket, now i have to wait upto 5 days for a fix.

Looks like the validation link im needing to be actviated and sent to this email account is no longer valid 😞

Is there anyways of sorting this quicker or have i done all i can?
