Just spent 40 minutes on tt help chat with an advisor who couldn't help and just answered the wrong questions! I have 5 emails I'm my tt account and want to delete one to free up my allocation so I can manage another email there. I followed the instructions to perm delete but a week later it is still there. A tt chat advisor at the time said it would clear in 24 hrs but hasn't.
Can OCEs help. The chat advisor today admitted they didn't have any instructions on how to help with this.
I've just deleted one of my TalkTalk.net email accounts using the Manage TalkTalk Mail option via MyAccount and had no problem.
Sign in to MyAccount, select My Services and Manage TalkTalk Mail from the drop-down list and you'll see the list of (nominally up to 5) email mailboxes associated with a TalkTalk Broadband package.
However, TalkTalk are aware of an issue with MyAccount where, for some customers, the deletion doesn't work as expected. So what we need to do is make TalkTalk aware of the issue impacting your MyAccount. I've alerted the OCE's for you.
Check your Community Profile Personal Information (Click here) includes your name, current TalkTalk landline 'phone number and an alternate number (mobile recommended) and address with postcode (location). Add, then scroll down and add the email address being deleted to Private notes and save changes. The TalkTalk Community Team OCE will then be able to link to your TalkTalk MyAccount.
Thanks for your reply - have followed instructions so hope OCE Team will delete it now - Fingers crossed! . Do I need to prompt them somehow - how do I do this? The whole system is rather mysterious to me.
Wish I could speak direct to the "Team" rather than my unsatisfactory attempts with the overseas callcentre / online talktalk help "chat" where I get nowhere (slowly) with problems not on their "list" of standard solutions.
Still thanks for your advice - much appreciated
This looks as though it may be an issue affecting a number of customers, it has been escalated, I'll let you know when I have any more information
