Suddenly - can receive but not send e-mails (ntlworld.com address)
Hi, established ntlworld.com e-mail address started having problems (Windows 7 / windows live mail). I can receive but can't send e-mails - asks for username/password all the time. Can anyone help please.
Welcome to our Community and thanks so much for your first post - I was sorry to understand that you're having some issues with your emails currently.
Does this only happen when using that email client/app or are you having the same issue when accessing via webmail? Have you managed to log into your webmail and change your password to see if that helps at all?
I have located your account from here and there are no issues showing for your email services; all looks ok and active.
Pop back with an update and the extra information and we'll help further if needed.

Glad to hear that it's all working @andy_clare - and thanks so much for popping back with your update of how it was resolved. Not only does this help us, but also other customers who may be having a similar issue.
Not sure if anyone has fixed this issue but i have uninstalled email app, tried a new email app, still wont connect to outgoing server,works great on PC (wifi) from outlook and website email ,running out of ideas
Please see my posts a couple of ones earlier than the one to which you replied in order to get an idea of the type of "responses" I myself have been getting in the very(and linked in my post!!!!) similar issue that I am currently experiencing with my own "XYZ@virginmedia.com" a/c (via Outlook 2016 & 2019 on different m/cs, and ALSO on my Android phone!) - i.e. I am continually prompted for my P/W because, somehow, the VM outgoing email server (smtp.virginmedia.com) won't accept it.
As I also said in my own thread, a similar thing happened a few weeks ago, and thus I STRONGLY suspect that the outgoing mail server username & P/W database is not up-to-date, or has been corrupted, in the last day or so. Thus, as I also said in my own thread "Here we go around the mullbery bush, AGAIN"! :(.
In the current situation, I have had to remove that email a/c from Outlook on both m/cs to avoid being continually prompted for my P/W (it's correct because I can get into that a/c via webmail and then see all the latest emails - both incoming and outgoing, of which for the latter, of course, there have been none since around midday on Tuesday because the "system" won't let me send any 😡!
You have obviously NOT taken a good look at the earlier posts in this thread because I posted a link to my own thread WHICH I STARTED YESTERDAY - AND SO IT WOULD APPEAR THAT YOU AND YOUR COLLEAGUES ARE NOT LOOKING "COLLECTIVELY" AT THE PROBLEMS, which appear to be happening "across the board" because multiple people are reporting similar issues with @VM and @ntl (and possibly other VM) email addresses,
AND YES, I have deleted, and then tried to reinstall, my VM a/c MULTIPLE times times from the email clients on 2 different W10 PC's (and my Android 6 phone using the MailWise client - although, oddly, that's not reporting any issues and is still receiving mail to my @VM a/c) but the reinstallation consistently fails when it tries to access the smtp.virginmedia.com outgoing mail server.
From past experience of my similar problems, I STRONGLY suggest that you contact Gareth_L who dealt with the VERY similar issue that I had with my VM a/c several months ago - he had to SUBSTANTIALLY escalate the problem within the VM support teams in order to get it resolved, which then took a couple of days, and so I suspect that the same will be necessary this time as I doubt that you guys "on the front line" will be able to fix it.
