    Take out all the information and put it in again. Make sure that you put in your whole email address and your password. Your password is case sensitive. This should work.

    Has it ever worked before?

    You are welcome,

    It is looking for a mail server. Who is your Internet provider? Tell them you need the name of their mail server. For example,

    The name that they they give you needs to be type into your email program. What type of email are you using. If this does not work your internet provider may have a web base email that you can check your email from.

    Just post back what you find out. I will try to help as much as I can.

    Is this outlook you are using?

    If so you need to type in the full email address, for example. and then your password on the next line.

    I hope this helps.

Why does my email not working

There is a tool to check what your username for webmail purposes is here:
Blueyonder username alias checker
Enter your blueyonder email address and password into the checker and it will tell you what your user name is.
If the alias checker does not recognise your email address then it may be that your email account has become 'orphaned' from your virginmedia account. If this is the case you will have to ring in on 151 (free from a VM mobile or landline) or 0845 454 1111 from any other phone provider (chargebale) - select the problem with broadband option
You can go directly to the blueyonder webmail page via this link:
Virgin Media Sign in to My Virgin Media
I can't guarantee that this will work, but my research shows that it is hopeful.
Good Luck

How do I log into a email account if I am no longer a Virgin customer?

I have a NTL account with Virgin but I believe when you leave them the account goes as well. Try accessing and asking for help.

There is an issue with your outgoing email server settings. Try to set them to match your incoming settings. Most email clients allow you to place a checkmark in the box for "Use Incoming Mail server settings"

Once upon a time i sent mail to one friend tat mail not recieved but after 6 months i recieved mail delvery failure report daily .i dont want tat report .pls unsubscribe it

If you don't recieve them, how will you know that the person/people you're trying to email didn't receive them?

Those are a GOOD thing. It means there's something wrong with the address. I would consider going back to snail mail and avoiding e-mail altogether to avoid those notices... because unless you get the email address correct EVERY single time you send an email, there's no way to stop them.. Seriously... you should want to know when something you e-mailed failed. Those notices only mean you have the address wrong.

I use Outlook Express for Emailing, i would like to change my present email address please can you help me to do this? Regards Clive.

Outlook Express is just a software which can send and recieve emails from any email account configured on it(Outlook Express). regardless of yahoo, gmail, , etc.

So if you want to change your email address and want to use it on outlook express, you need to first create an email account by going to the website on which you want to create an email address.

Once you have created the email address we can look for the POP/SMTP server settings of that particular email account on the internet .
Once we have those(POP/SMTP) addresses we can configure Outlook Express to send and recieve emails for your new email account.
