reroute emails from virgin media to outlook

Post by Dave Davison »

Just had a security issue with my Virgin media and had to change log in details so I suppose this is why my emails are no longer forwarded to my Outlook account. What settings need to be tweeked to restore this feature please? Dave

Virgin Media (without any notification) has required that the signon to their mail server (webmail) should be by an email address other than a Virgin Media one. Once I did this I am able to sign on to the Virgin Media email website.
I didn't have to change anything on Outlook (2010), which had/has continued to work throughout this saga... (I access this using POP3/SMTP.)

Try posing a question on their email forum - sometimes you get a helpful answer!

The same thing crops up regularly in the email section of my ISP's forum.

Thanks for the replies, MS is always up to something which - in my opinion- are backward steps rather than enhancing the system.
After blocking my email account; supposedly for security purposes, it has taken me two live chats and three phone calls to get access to my acount again after wo weeks. Will try the link John gave and if need be, fish around on you tube for assistance. Oh for the days of XP which for me was the best they ever designed. Cheers guys and a happy Christmas to all members. Dave
