My husband used to be with virgin media but cancelled contract about 18 months ago. He is still using ntlworld email, however he hasn't been able to send or receive emails for a week. The message that came up was - we couldn't access this account. ntlworld. you might need to update password or give account permission to sync to this device. We have tried ole and new passwords but comes up with same message. We have uninstalled from laptop but now cannot sign in at all. It won't accept password and he can't remember username and also doesn't have an account number anymore. Any ideas????
@beckaroonie unfortunately once you stop being a VM customer, then all associated email mailboxes and all the messages within should be deleted within 90 days. Often this doesn’t happen immediately and the mailbox lingers on but is prone to being deleted at any time.
It is most likely that this has now happened to the mailbox and it would be best to assume that it has gone and won’t be coming back.
