My email account stopped working on the 27th March. I cannot access the email account on webmail - I tried resetting the password but it seems the email account is not recognised. I am having problems getting support as I do not have a TalkTalk account.
Is it possible to regain access or put an email divert into the account?
It seems the account still exists as I can send an email to the address and there is no 'not delivered' message.
Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks

Include your mobile contact number and times to call - daytimes when you'll be there in person to receive the password and speak to the email team (for your security they won't leave a message with the password and there's no number to call them). Don't forget to save changes.

I did get a call thanks. Unfortunately I was unable to take it but received a voice message to give TalkTalk a call. I tried calling on the same number but get a response TalkTalk will try to contact me again. Should I wait or try another TalkTalk number ?
Appreciate your thoughts.
