Hi Carolecc10, if you see this Gondola is right. By deleting your profile you prevent us from helping you further.

I see you've now closed your Community profile which means that TalkTalk Support here cannot help you to safeguard your email address from deletion nor remove the limitation to webmail only access because of non-payment via the Direct Debit that you cancelled.
If you'd changed your bank via the Banking Switch service then the new bank would seamlessly take over the Direct Debit so something to bear in mind for the future.
The TalkTalk advice is: "Your email account will be reduced to a basic service and eventually deleted if we're unable to collect payment. If this happens your service will be restored once full payment has been made via My Account or by getting in touch with us."
So, if you have been in touch with TalkTalk Customer Service and successfully made a payment to your MailPlus MyAccount by setting up a new Direct Debit with your new bank then your mail service would be unrestricted. i.e. not limited to webmail only access.
Let us know if you need any additional help.

ok, thanks i have now resolved with talktalk as I had cancelled my direct debit and changed to a new bank. I just couldn't understand why they would send an email saying pay via myaccount when its something i couldn't access for months due to a technical error their end and which is still going on, so another option of payment could have been offered as per your link below.

The MailPlus subscription is paid by UK Bank Direct Debit. You shouldn't need to sign in to the customer MyAccount to manage payments as those are automatic, either monthly @£5 or a one off annual payment of £50.
Has the Direct Debit been set up by your bank and has payment been taken? You're giving me the impression that there's an issue with payment and your email access via software or apps has been limited as a result.
At all times you'll have access to your mail messages via the TalkTalk Mail sign in.
Select here: Sign in to TalkTalk Mail
Enter your talktalk.net email address and its password, select Sign in.
Let us know if your access via other means has been limited and TalkTalk Support will remove that limitation pending resolution of any payment problem.

@Anonymous, Talktalk does have other options for payment:
@Gondola, are these viable for paying for Talktalk Plus?

thank you, its been like that for months and i was told that i would never be able to use it again so how are people supposed to log in and manage subscriptions. instead we receive emails saying pay your bill by logging into myaccount which you cant so they should be giving different options to pay instead of just cutting off email access. you call several people and get several different answers and i work full time and do not have time to spend all day on forums. forgive my rant and you have been very helpful. just wish things weren't so so complicated.....

There's a known issue for some TalkTalk Mail Plus customers in not being able to access the MailPlus customer MyAccount using the sign-up email address and its password.
To add your email address to the list of those awaiting a fix just add your talktalk.net address to your Community profile Private notes.
I'm aware that you'll not have a TalkTalk home'phone but just put your normal contact number in the Phone number box. Save changes.
TalkTalk Support will respond here in due course.
If there's anything else I can help you with about TalkTalk Mail or anything you needed access to the MyAccount to achieve then just let me know.
