Hi, my wife's email address that she's had for approx 15 years with the @virgin.net domain has suddenly stopped working. We've tried the online password reset and it tells us the "you cannot use this password" despite trying multiple different and previously unused password.
I've called Virginmedia multiple times, most frustratingly was this morning and was told by the offshore operator that they can't help and can't see my wife's email address : [MOD EDIT: Personal details]
I solved this myself. Basically the VirginMedia email password reset page has a bug. You put a new password in and it tells you can't have it and to try again. This is the bug, however the password you put in actually works.
I'd just like to say that after 2 weeks of being completely fobbed off by VirginMedia it nice to have resolved it!!!! I hope this helps others.
VirginMedia : You need to up your game and listen to your customers when there is a problem!
No, no account. We've had the @virgin.net email since approx 2014.
To be honest, we the extreme lack of support there is no way I'd have a virgin broadband, TV or mobile package after the experience we've had trying to sort out the email password issue. Hopeless offshore call-centres and the online help just goes in loops.
Are you confirming that you're able to access the virgn.net email address again? If you have, I would still highly recommend setting up a 3rd party email address, getting all important emails forwarded to it and all contacts. The one by one changing your contact email address to anyone who needs to have your email address. banks etc. As there's a very high possibility that you will lose access to that email address in the future and it won't be retrievable.
