At about 4pm on Friday 3rd December my virgin.net email address stopped working - it's [deleted]@virgin.net. I'm a Virgin Media broadband customer. When I log onto webmail I get the following message:
Your mailbox is not available at the moment.
Please retry again in one hour and make sure you are using the correct password to access your email from all of your devices.
If the problem continues, please call our team for help on 150 from a Virgin Media phone or mobile, or 0345 454 1111 from any other phone and select option 2. For details about how much it costs to call our team from a Virgin Media home phone, visit virginmedia.com/callcosts. Call costs from other networks and mobiles vary.
Virgin Media customer services said that I need to talk to Talk Talk as they have taken over Virgin Media National customers (which I had absolutely no idea about). Predictably enough Talk Talk customer services didn't have a clue (I have no Talk Talk account) and referred me back to Virgin Media.
This is a disaster, my virgin.net account is my main business account and I'm waiting for a bunch of contracts to come through and need to work this weekend,
Can anyone help?!
Thanks and best wishes,

You'll have to ask Virgin Media to transfer your virgin.net email to your account (a Move and Transfer) but be aware this will permanently remove any existing email addresses currently associated with your account.
Talk Talk have nothing whatsoever to do with any Virgin Media email domains, why the help desk staff believe they do is a total mystery. Poor training perhaps? Ineptitude? A need to close calls by fair means or foul?
Anyway, Virgin Media control the virgin.net email domain and VM are the only ones who can provide a resolution for you. Or not.
