Re: Virgin.net

Hello

The problem you have is down to the fact that you do not have a current UK Virginmedia Broadband account I am afraid that to be able to use a VM email address you have too have a Broadband account, with the virgin.net email address these should have closed 1 year after VM stopped the dial up system when it was sold to TalkTalk.

I am afraid that all support can do is too make sure that the email address is deleted properly, they will not be able to give you access.

Re: Virgin.net

Hello

The dial up service was sold to Talk Talk in 2015 and all customer were told by email that the email account would be close 1 year after the date of Talk Talk taking over the dial up service. It is also written in the terms and conditions of Virginmedia that without a broadband account then you have no entitlement to use the VM email system.

Re: Virgin.net

Out of curiosity…

What error message do you see?

Are you using an email client or webmail?

Is this the primary email address for the account or a secondary email address?
