ntlworld.com email down?

We have an ntlworld.com email address that suddenly stopped working 12 hours ago. This happened on multiple devices. We successfully retrieved it from an orphaned account with support a few years ago. We can't access it through the webmail either.

Does anyone have any idea why this would stop working? Unfortunately it's my wifes main work email.I've searched for hours for a live chat link to support. Any advice will be much appreciated.

Thanks
Jon

Re: ntlworld.com email down?

@jonathanhill When you sign into your My Virgin Media account with your primary username can you see the email address concerned listed under the Manage Accounts tab?

For reference the previous thread is in the archive, https://community.virginmedia.com/t5/Forum-Archive/Lost-ntlworld-email-password/td-p/4103102/page/3

I suspect that the VM Forum Team will need to investigate this at the account level so I will escalate this to their priority queue.

Re: ntlworld.com email down?

Our primary username is the ntlworld.com email address in question. When signed in there isn't a Manage Accounts tab. There is only a My Account tab on the left, with no reference to the email account under it and there is a link at the top the right named "EMAIL". But this loads with a page stating the mailbox is unavailable at the moment. https://store.virginmedia.com/unavailable.html

Thanks for finding and linking the previous thread, I hope it helps resolve the issue.
Please do escalate it to the priority queue, it's causing a huge problem as she's unable to work.

Thank you so much for your assistance

Jonathan

Re: ntlworld.com email down?

If it is the primary account it should show in under the My Profile tab in the Virgin media mail section.

The error message that you report indicates that the account has been locked for security purposes.

The VM Forum Team should be able to help you with this, but they will ask you to change the password first.  You do this via your My Profile tab.

Re: ntlworld.com email down?

Hi @jonathanhill,

Apologies, but would you mind expanding on what you mean when you state that the email link shows unavailable? Is that when you click on it when you've signed into your My Virgin Media online account?
 

Thanks,

Re: ntlworld.com email down?

Hi @jonathanhill,

Thank you for confirming. I just wanted to ensure we were on the same page with what's going on.
 

I'm going to send you a private message in a few moments. There we can take a few extra details and take a closer look at what's going on for you.

Please respond to this at your earliest convenience and we can proceed from there.

Thanks,
