Good Evening,
Just to put my mind at rest,is anyone apart from me experiencing problems trying to access the Virgin.Net email server?

Irritatingly it's been out all day. I've only managed to get an email in from their server once, and several left on. Is this becoming a more frequent event? It seems so to me.

This is the first time for a long long time that I have had trouble retrieving my emails. From what I have read already some seem to say that its done this more than once.

I thought I was going round the twist as I could not even get the "contact us" page to load on the website to get the help phone number, the number I have is changed. Thanks for posting this.

I have found that only your main account can be retrieved via the "webmail" page. If you have like me got three other email address's for the family then you cannot open these. B*M.
