Ady will resume support from Monday onwards. In the meantime, here's the information you need:
If you're a TalkTalk Consumer customer (either home broadband or MailPlus mail only) having listed the email address in the customer MyAccount / My Mailboxes you can carry out a permanent deletion by selecting the Delete option:
Managing your email in My Account Confirm that you want a permanent deletion and it's gone forever in the blink of an eye.
But if you cannot take this route then you'll need to contact the Data Protection office team. There is a postal address but you can also use any TalkTalk contact method to make an initial enquiry.
LiveChat to TalkTalk support is here: Our LiveChat team. Wait for the light blue Chat now button to appear; It's grey or clear when busy or offline.
Opening hours are here: When to contact TalkTalk?
TIP - Pause tracker blocking in the browser, ad-blockers and similar blocking software to avoid conflict with LiveChat's operation.

The TalkTalk Data Protection team will take your instructions to delete an email address under your GDPR Right to erasure / Right to be forgotten. GDPR Right to erasure
This option will require you to offer suitable evidence of your identity and that you are the person registered with TalkTalk as the user of the email address. This is required to make absolutely sure the right address is being deleted as deletion is permanent and non-reversible.
The timescale is typically two weeks and you'll get a written confirmation back to your postal address that the permanent deletion is completed. It's usually a couple of weeks but no longer than a month to get that confirmation sent but do let us know how you get on. We appreciate feedback even when sending members off site to get the solution.
