cwcom.net

I have an ntlworld email address but have recently been sent an email to the old cwcom.net suffix. Is there anyway I can access it? I assume those emails were forwarded to ntlworld.com when you changed the name? 

- another question : what is the "Alternate Email address " in the Profile page for? Is it to add a 2nd email address for security purposes? I can't seem to go in and change it

Hi sj22,

 

Thank you for your post. 

 

It is unlikely we can re-access these. I am more than happy to try though if you would like me to PM you?

@Martin_N  - You might want to read this:

When Cable and Wireless closed down their internet service they also closed down the cwcom.net email service as well.  It looks like some enterprising individuals decided to recreate the domain a few years ago.

Given as they are using a Privacy Registration service I rather doubt they're anything to do with Cable & Wireless and certainly nothing to do with Virgin Media.

Checking their MX record.

;; ANSWER SECTION:
cwcom.net.              14400   IN      MX      50 mx3.zoho.eu.
cwcom.net.              14400   IN      MX      10 mx.zoho.eu.
cwcom.net.              14400   IN      MX      20 mx2.zoho.eu.

Zoho themseoves are a legitimate email outfit, but they do allow free email hosting for a single domain and up to 25 email addresses.

Most likely the cwcom.net domain has been taken over by a spam outfit.

Re: cwcom.net

thank you so much for the information. I wasn't able to retrieve that email to cwcom.net but I managed to find another way to solve my problem. I would have assumed that Virgin Media would hang on to its old domain names , as it costs them very little and its security for long standing customers like me. I hope they let customers know if they ever decide to move ntlworld email addresses .

Re: cwcom.net

The thing is - I doubt Virgin Media ever acquired the rights to the cwcom.net domain.

That domain would have been originally owned by Cable & Wireless.

NTL accquired  the residential customer base from CW prior to their merger with Telewest, but at the time of acquisition they certainly had no plans to keep the cwcom.net email addresses going.  As was indicated in the resource I found.

@ModTeam @Kev_B 

I wonder if it might be worth someone asking CW to look into who is currently using that domain.
