Virgin.net emails

Hi

I still have some virgin.net emails which are forwarded to my current email address. Is there a way I can manage these old .net email addresses to stop the spam being sent?

Many thanks

 

Paul

Re: Virgin.net emails

Certainly is a way, but you may not like it. Betting is that the virgin.net address is one of those that should have been closed down when the old dial up service it was linked to closed or was one which should have only existed for 12 months after VM sold its ADSL customers to TalkTalk. In that case or in the case where it was linked to a VM broadband account but isn't now VM will simply close it down, if you ask them to.

In the long run it will be closed anyway as VM clean up their systems.

It you want it closed now wait here till a VM team member contacts through this thread and they'll get organised for you.

Re: Virgin.net emails

Thanks Howard

Don't know about 'In the long run it will be closed anyway as VM clean up their systems' as that and other addresses I own are still active after 20 years 🙂

still, maybe that is what you mean by 'In the long run it will be closed' lol

But what I really want to know is if I can access the accounts in any way?

Re: Virgin.net emails

If the account is not linked to a live, paid for VM broadband account the answer is NO.

And the clear out will be quicker than that, this time.

Re: Virgin.net emails

Hello grumpypaul

Thanks for your post and sorry to hear you still have active .net address that we need to close down 

As @HowardML has advised we can delete them for you 

I will need to send you a private message to get the details required 

If you can check the purple envelope top right of your screen that would be great 
Regards

Hello grumpypaul

I have requested for those emails accounts to be deleted 

It can take upto 7 days to be done

However it is usually a lot quicker that this
