Hi,

 

I am trying to access an email account that I haven't used for several years. Is there any way to do this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. 

 

Thanks!

Hi jennymaynard

 

Heads up that TalkTalk Mail addresses not added to an active TalkTalk Consumer customer MyAccount are limited to Internet browser webmail access and flagged for deletion if no action is taken.

 

If no sign in is detected in 180 days the mailbox is flagged for deletion for non-use. Deleted email addresses and their mailboxes are not recoverable or recreatable.

Are you a TalkTalk Consumer home broadband or MailPlus, mail only, subscriber customer and if so is the TalkTalk Mail email address added to your customer MyAccount?  Let us know if you're a full-fibre home broadband TalkTalk Consumer customer. Manage TalkTalk Mail options are not yet included in the full-fibre MyAccount management. 

 Email not showing in My Account

 

Select here: Sign in to TalkTalk Mail

Enter your email address and password, select Sign in.

If you know the current email password you'll get signed in.

 

So, if you cannot sign in to webmail we need to check if the email address is still active. Send the email address a mail message and see if you get an immediate bounceback error message saying 'Undeliverable' that means the mailbox isn't active.

 

Then  enter the email address at Verifalia, an external website that verifies if an email address exists. Enter the email address, complete the reCAPTCHA and select the Validate button. Does the top line response say 'Deliverable' or something else?

 

Finally, use the Reset password now button in the Help page  Changing your email password to see if you get a deleted or no domain error message or if you actually do have password recovery options saved.  If the email address is still active on the TalkTalk Mail platform and you have set up password recovery options, that you recognise from the hints as your current recovery methods, you can send your alternate email address a link or your mobile a 6-digit code to authorise a password reset.

 

Let us know the outcome in each case including error messages and we'll guide you from there.
