currently virgin are having problems and customers can receive emails but cannot send them, virgin have advised me to use click here and log into your account to send,
it is also worth checking your inbox and span folder while there, I have 1988 messages in my inbox and 974 in my spam folder, so worth a clean out, I had not thought out these folders before so it came as a shock
still not working for me, get the following message: An unknown error has occurred. Subject 'Fw: virgin problem and oddfellows request', Account: 'Harry', Server: 'smtp.ntlworld.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '421 Cannot connect to SMTP server 184.108.40.206 (220.127.116.11:465), connect error 10060', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 421, Error Number: 0x800CCC67
if anybody has an idea on this then I'll look forward to hearing it
Right maybe because I use another e-mail provider using my NTL e-mail address. I take it you are using Virgins own e-mail whatever it is. It should be the same settings mind you. Did you check service outage as it may only be in your district.
thanks buteman, I have 3 @ntlworld.com address's one for family, one for work and one for web use, ie this forum, plus wife has one, all the have the same problem virgin did say there was a problem but did not specify an area thanks VoG, I am in the north east so it may just be my area, settings must be right or I could not receive them
You will currently be experiencing problems sending emails. Our engineers are aware of this issue and are currently working to fix it fast. We apologise for any inconvenience this may be causing. Date Issue raised: September 22 2010, 12:08 Estimated repair time: September 23 2010, 16:01 Fault reference: F001380000
What I hate is when you phone up and are put through to one of the foreign call centers and you are on the phone for about 20 minutes trying to get help before they find out that it is a local repair problem. I am sure they would get far more customers if they done away with the foreign call centers. Well at least it looks like it will be fixed today for you.
