Apologies for being yet another person with same issues of not being able to access email.
I have had a virgin.net account for well over 15 years. I was never a customer of virgin and to be honest can’t remember how or why I signed up. I appreciate that as as a result Virgin aren’t really interested in my problems. I did call the phone number suggested but they just said call TalkTalk - after previous experience with them, I’d rather chop my head off!
I have tested the account with mail tester and it’s still active. Is this classed as an Orphan Account? Am I ever likely to get it back? Like others who have already posted, it couldn’t have come at a more difficult time. I have several voluntary jobs and all of them are dependent on my having email.
Can I at least have some way of retrieving the addresses? Or emails? Or transferring them? It just seems very odd that this has happened to so many people and we seem completely stuffed! Had I had some warning, then I would have taken appropriate action but to just suddenly do this, I feel violates my rights regardless of what the T&C say!
nothing that can be done. The account should of been deleted long ago. you have had free email for all that time. Time has caught up. Best to never use ISP email and register with something independent
