I have a lineone email address that has now been taken over by Talktalk. I had a few emails saved in my inbox that I had kept, but yesterday I noticed that everything from before 1/118 has disappeared both on line (webmail) and on my iphone.
Is it possible to rebuild the mailbox to get the emails back?
Are you a TalkTalk broadband customer and is the Lineone email account associated with your MyAccount? If so, just recheck to ensure your Community Profile Personal Information (Click here) includes your TalkTalk landline phone number and an alternate number (mobile recommended). Add, then scroll down and add the email address in Private Notes and save changes. That way the OCE can be sure of dealing with the correct email address.
If not, you'll need to prove you're the legal owner of the Lineone email. Double check that you've added to your Community Profile, Personal Information (Click here) all of the following in the Private Notes area at the bottom of the page:
Email address affected.
Your Full Name.
Date of Birth.
Phone number linked to the Lineone email address when first registered.
Full postal address linked to the Lineone email address when first registered.
Don't forget to save changes.
The personal information is used to verify the details recorded for the owner of the email address.
