Your email is getting a makeover.
At Virgin Media, we’re all about making good things happen to bring you the best ever customer experience. With this in mind, we’ve revamped our email system so it’s much simpler to use. And the best bit? It works great on mobile too.
We’ve put together a few answers to some of the stuff you may be wondering about. Got a question? See below.
Why are you changing my email address?
To keep our Virgin promise of ‘making good things happen’ we’ve revamped our email system so it’s much simpler for you to use. And it now works great on mobile too. Hooray!
Will I lose all my emails and contacts?
No, there’s no need to worry - we’ve got this. All your emails and contacts will transfer automatically to your new email account.
Will my login details change?
Nope. Your password and email address will stay the same. In the future, we will be changing your email address from firstname.lastname@example.org to email@example.com, but we will let you know well in advance.
It’s that simple
What about my gym membership updates - will I still get these?
Again, you won’t need to do a thing. All emails sent to your old email platform will forward to the new platform so you won’t have to update any online subscriptions or bookings. Sweet.
Do I need to update the settings on my iOS, Windows or Android device?
No, your settings won’t change. So you’re sorted.
Do I need to update my Outlook settings?
Nope. All’s grand here too, as these settings won’t change either.
Do I need to set up new folders or rules?
We’re on it, so there’s no need to set up a thing. Any folders or rules you already had will be kept just as they were.
Can I change my email address?
