from Google this clearly is a Virgin media issue as has happened to others. My account is active and in constant use. Can a Virgin employee please assist me? I get absolutely nowhere when I telephone for help, ever.

my blueyonder emails, constantly in use, as disappearing

please, please can a Virgin technician reach out for this. I have lost years' worth of emails suddenly and they are not anywhere - I've checked and checked. This is appalling, and heartbreaking.

Re: my blueyonder emails, constantly in use, as disappearing

@JaneOlivia1  If the emails concerned are not showing in the Inbox or any other folder, including Trash, within the VM Mail webmail interface then VM will not be able to recover them for you.  If  you haven't already checked via webmail you should do so by going to https://mail2.virginmedia.com/ and logging in with the email address concerned and password.

If they are not showing the most likely explanation is that they have been deleted when using another email client connected via the IMAP settings.

Do you not keep offline backups of your important emails?

Re: my blueyonder emails, constantly in use, as disappearing

my emails were on my phone, webmail and in mail app. all wiped. the virgin media helpline, such as it is, are telling me there was an outage and say this has to do with it. but the 150 tech support is awash with contradictory/unhelpful advice. i am trying to find out if the emails will magically appear again. i wish someone could tell me what happened, why. others have said same so I don't imagine I am culpable here.

As advised above, you need to keep copies of important emails offline where they are relatively safe.

If the problem is that you cannot access your email account, VM staff may be able to help you reconnect to it. But if you can connect to the account and the emails are missing from all the folders in your account, whatever the reason, they have sadly gone.

thanks for your time, and appreciated - but your point, twice made, feels rather victim blaming. This is a Virgin Media issue and should be treated as such by them.

It might have been a Virgin fault, or it might have been a fault with any of the devices you have been using to access your email.

Re: my blueyonder emails, constantly in use, as disappearing

Hi @JaneOlivia1,

I'm really sorry to hear your emails have been cleared completely. I've taken a look and can see no issues on our end that has caused this to happen. Were you able to check the online mail platform at https://mail2.virginmedia.com/ as advised by @Graham_A? If your email is showing there, then it may be a configuration issue on your email service/device.

If there are no emails when signing in to the online mail platform, we would not be able to retrieve any emails as it would mean that the emails have been deleted directly from our servers. Issues like this can occur if you've removed an email from an app or your phone, or if you have amended any settings 

 

Thanks,

Reece - Forum Team
