Hello ,  my old Tiscali account has been blocked and I can’t reset the password as I don’t have a talktalk account.  I have seen that a few other people have had the same problem so I have updated my information in my profile.  Hopefully this problem can be sorted soon.

Hi Julie

 

I assume you say the email is blocked because when you try password recovery at https://myaccount.talktalk.co.uk/forgotdetails/index/webmailindex You enter the e-mail address. Tick the I'm not a robot and select the continue button. If that is when you see a red bordered box next to the e-mail address that says "This email address is currently blocked" then you'll need help to get that email address unblocked / unsuspended.

 

The email address will have been suspended because the email system has detected suspicious activity. It could just be repeated tries at guessing the password or the account has been compromised or the password is so weak that it puts the email account at risk.

 

If the above is what's happening then a fault ticket will be needed so the email admins are authorised to unblock the email address.

 

I'll alert the TalkTalk Community team for you.

 

In the meantime, you may wish to check the devices that you use for email and scan them with anti-malware / anti-virus software to make sure that they've not been compromised with password capturing malware.

 

You can also check your email address at haveibeenpwned.com to see if it's registered at any site that's had a known data breach. If it is not listed then that's good news. But if it is listed then that may help you to protect other online sites where you've registered the email address. 

 

Let us know if you find anything suspicious but don't reveal any personal details.

Hi

 

I have already tried what you suggested and it goes round in circles as I can't get passed the robot and into the email

 

Can a ticket be raised for this to reactive the account

Hello,  

I didn't hear anything over the weekend.  Would you be able to check for an update.

Hi Julie, this was sorted yesterday afternoon. You should now be able to reset your password via Password Recovery.

Hello,

I get the option to reset my password sending the reset code to @Tiscali.co.uk or a text to a number ending 2452.  

I don't have access to the email account so can't select option 1 and don't have a number ending 2452 so can't select this option either.

 

please can you advise

Ok now that the block is lifted I'll have to raise another ticket for your password recovery to be setup. Please add an alternate email addresss to your community profile in private notes and I'll raise the ticket for you. Please don't post it here in the thread.

Hello,

its been three weeks since my account was blocked and I haven’t been able to gain access to any of my emails. Just checked again and the alternative email address still hasn’t been added.
