From https://www.virginmedia.com/ I select Email and enter my email address (the one attached to this account) and password. I then get a screen saying Sorry

The email account is working as it is forwarding to another address.
I tried ringing 150 and spoke to someone there but they could not help me.
Email is being forwarded and that is still working. I just got a message that password had been changed.
If I use Outlook and set up a connection using POP3, testing gives:
Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): Outlook cannot connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). Send test e-mail message: Cannot send the message. Verify the e-mail address in your account properties. The server responded: 530 5.1.0 Authentication Required (VM401)
