I can see others have had the same issue so I'm hoping someone can assist me in gaining access to my ntlworld mailbox which has been unavailable since Christmas.
I have the message;

I have tried the 0345 number who transferred me to a queue which I waited in for 48 mins before my phone battery gave up. I've had various messenger chats with a number of individuals since 7th Jan. I have been advised that a ticket has been raised with IT (7th jan) and that it would take 3-5 days. Nothing. Then on 20th I was told 24 hours. Still nothing. My last interaction just told me to try ringing again. I've tried, but it just says they're busy, try later.
I really need access to my emails as it's my primary account.
I can see that several people have had the same issue as me and look to have been helped by the forum team so I'm hoping someone can do the same for me please.
When I ticked your answer as helpful, did I inadvertently close this request for help? I've had no response from anyone from the forum team and still nothing from IT. Apologies, I've never used this (or any other) forum before.
Just to update this thread I do now have access to my emails.
I'm told it was a password issue, which following a second IT ticket being raised by the forum team (first one vanished into the ether) seems to have resolved the problem. I'm not sure why it took so long to identify and then rectify but there you go.
Disappointing also that you have to post on a forum in order to get anyone to own the problem and assist in resolution. That said, I am grateful to Rob and Zak from the VM forum team for finally solving my problem on this occasion - thank you.
