Unable to access virgin.net email account

Hi,

As of last Wednesday night, I've been unable to access my virgin.net email account that I've had for the best part of 20 years. Tried access from various means including webmail, but no success. The password is correct, it just seems it doesn't connect to the email server. Are there any problems?

Nigel

Hello

First of all a question are you still a Virginmedia broadband customer if not then the problem could be that VM have deleted the email address as it is an orphaned email address see https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Email/Orphan-Email-accounts/td-p/3492073
https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Email/Closure-of-former-customer-email-accounts/m-p/4092021

If you are a customer is the email address attached to your broadband account ?

Hi Mike,

Yes I'm a Virginmedia customer but don't think the address is attached to the broadband account. Is this a problem?

Re: Unable to access virgin.net email account

Yes, potentially.  If the email address concerned is not linked to a current VM broadband account it is liable to be closed down at any time without notice.

It may be possible to move the address to your current account if you are the account holder for both accounts.

The process will wipe out any email addresses on your current VM account.

Re: Unable to access virgin.net email account

How do I find out whether the virgin.net email address is still there and how to move it across to the virgin media account?

The VM Forum Team should reply here on Monday with further advice as to how this can be resolved, if it can.
