I have been locked out of my emails this afternoon. I am trying to sign in but I get the message “Your Virgin Media Mail account is currently unavailable. This is because your Virgin Media Account is locked, or because you don’t have an account with us anymore. Follow these steps etc . …………….”
Those instructions don’t work because I can still access My Virgin Media Account but not emails. I’ve been a customer for over 23 years.
This couldn’t have happened at a worse time as currently selling my house and all concerned use my Virgin media email. I noticed this happened to someone else a week ago and was resolved by intervention of Forum staff. Please help.
Thanks for taking the time to post in the community.
We're sorry to hear your email account has been locked. There are some steps you'll need to follow in order to resolve this.
These changes have been put in place as Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is now required. Just as a side note, when logging in to My VM, you will continue to use your current log in details.
Please let me know how you get on and apologies for the inconvenience.

sorry about the delay in responding. I followed the instructions I found elsewhere on the forum which I think were the same as yours but it didn't work. I'm useless at understanding how and why email works but had I not accidently resolved the issue by trying various methods I would still have no email at this very important time. To think what I pay Virgin each month and for them just to lock my account without notifying me is scandalous. Now just to add to the problem I cannot access email again. Monday pm. Just a blank page saying FORBIDDEN across the top. Any help would be appreciated.
I should add that in resolving the problem last week I used a third party email address and new password to access my account. Now I can't get to a login page.
Second edit. I've just tried following your instructions above to see it that would work. Got to "Virgin Media Mail Settings" clicked that then got this message......
Best wishes Josip
When I regained access last week it was only after setting up a new 3rd party email and used that and a new password. I don't get the opportunity to use a password the initial email page won't load only blank except for the FORBIDDEN message. This seems to be a problem with many customers for many months now.
Thank you for reaching back out, we are sorry for any inconvenience caused, the Email issue was resolved, if you still do not have full access please change the password.
