Why is my Virgin Media email not working? Why is my Virgin Media email not working?
There are a number of reasons why you could be having difficulty signing into your Virgin Media email. Check out the following for the most common solutions.
Changed your login and trying to access webmail? Changed your login and trying to access webmail?
If you are experiencing Virgin Media email sign in problems it could be because you have changed your preferred My Virgin Media login to something other than the email address we gave you when you first joined us. The new login is the one you need to use when you access your Virgin Media Mail account via a browser.
For example, if we gave you the username email@example.com, and you changed this to firstname.lastname@example.org in My Virgin Media > My Profile, the second address is the one you need to use to sign in to your email@example.com webmail.
If you use an email client, you need to use your Virgin Media Mail address as the username.

In order to check out the latest Virgin Media Mail features, we suggest that you upgrade your browser to the latest version of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome or Safari for a faster and better Virgin Media Mail experience.
Unfortunately, if your computer is running Windows XP, you won’t be able to upgrade your IE8 browser to a more modern version, or upgrade your IE9 browser if you are on Windows Vista.
Note: it is possible to use an alternative browser but, as Windows has ended support for XP and will end support for Vista in April 2017, alternative browsers may not always be available. Where possible we highly recommend updating to a supported and secure version of Windows.

- Do not use existing or previous passwords
- Choose one between 8-10 characters that includes numbers, uppercase and lowercase letters
