Virgin Media Leaving my Octogenarian Mother cut off from email for 12 weeks and counting...
My Mother is in her 80s and lives alone. She relies on email to keep in touch with her siblings overseas and to manage her utilities.
On 30th August she suddenly lost access to her email mailbox. The mailbox is reported as 'unavailable'. We reported this to Virgin a couple of days later when it did not resolve itself. I contacted Virgin on their Social Media Channel in addition to customer services.
Despite constant chasing from us, she still has no access to her email 12 weeks' later.
Each time Customer Service tries to sort out the issue by changing the password on my Mother's account and, when that doesn't resolve the issue, pass it on to 'engineering' marking it 'urgent'.

It's extremely disappointing to hear of the email problems experienced by your mother, specially with the need to be able to be contacted. We appreciate you taking the time to raise this via the forums and welcome to the community.
To look into this further I'm going to send you a Private Message to get some more details from you and look forward to your reply.
