I am a mobile and broadband customer of many years yet my virgin e-mail address seems to have been discontinued - I can't log in to webmail and get “username does not exist” when I try and reset password. I think the address might be linked to an old account at the same address - I am coming back to a property after a period away. Spent 2 hours on phone and 4 hours on web chat and getting nowhere. IMAP still works but for how much longer? This address is also the one I use to manage my Virgin Mobile account. Really need the webmail as I am on the road between properties. Ideally need to associate this e-mail with my new broadband account at the same address but just keep getting transferred between teams. Pulling my hair out with frustration and wasted hours trying to sort this : (
Please could someone offer any advice as to how I engage Virgin to deal with this issue? Perhaps you have had similar? I'm very worried that I am going to lose my e-mail address despite being a paying mobile and broadband customer and Virgin are ignoring all attempts to contact them and resolve this : (
I haven't had a reply at all. Do you actually have an update Graham, do you work or speak for Virgin?
I neither work for or speak for Virgin Media as stated explicitly in my signature, if you click on the link you will be able to read about the status of VIP forum members.
I did escalate your issue to the staff yesterday and would have expected them to have replied by now. The staff are very busy at the moment with extra work as all the offshore call centres are out of action due to the world wide pandemic.
They will respond in due course.
I'm a Very Insightful Person, I'm here to share knowledge, I don't work for Virgin Media, I'm a VM customer. There are no guarantees that my advice will work. Learn more

Can I ask, if you don't work for Virgin and you are only a customer, how are you escalating it with them? Why are you escalating calls to them? This is only the second time I have used this forum in many years. Would be really helpful to understand what is happening.
Sadly I never heard anything back. I've tried phone (hours), webchat (hours) here on the forum and a complaint. Not a sausage. Now regretting returning as a broadband customer at all. I know these are challenging times but this really is showing contempt for customers. I'm really struggling without webmail access to my e-mail address and they had no reason to turn it off for a paying customer. Honestly, my opinion of Virgin is rock bottom.
