Sommat weird going on with Virgin Media email

Got my phone set up to download emails automatically but leave them on the server (and when I run my email programme at home it downloads them and deletes them off the server).

 

Checked just before and I've suddenly got 26 emails, all from myself.  Started reading them and they're all emails I sent to other people about 3 years ago (some of them are me emailing people at the start of January 2007 to arrange our trip to Villa away)

 

Went home and checked my email and they've all vanished, been deleted from the server.  Just found out someone had the same thing happen to her, but she got 46 emails she sent in 2007.  How the hell does that happen and, more to the point, why have my completely uninteresting emails from over 3 years ago apparently been held on to by my ISP?

found this at digitalspy cable forum..

 

They are currently migrating all blueyonder email addresses over to a new webmail infastructure very similar to google mail and this is has popped up for a few people now, at present Virginmedia are currently investigating the cause but dont have an update

Actually migrating onto Google's servers, so if you use summat like Outlook or Outlook Express set to POP3 you won't be able to see what mail gets caught up as spam as it won't show. Only way you can see what spam (and possibly legit mail mis-read as spam), is to log into webmail on the Virginmedia.com site.

 

Overall it's a downgrade, though they describe it as "Virgin Media Mail is a shiny new upgrade to your existing @blueyonder.co.uk email account and it comes packed with great extras that we know you're going to love. Best of all, you don't have to lift a finger -  we'll do everything for you and move your current @blueyonder.co.uk email account in January and send you a welcome email to tell you when it's all done."

 

They say you don't have to lift a finger but in reality there are loads of people having problems with access from their mobiles.
