  • Solved: My password had not changed but my iPhone would not connect any longer. I went on virgin media and RE ENTERED the SAME password and it now works. Apparently it can get corrupted, still work on WebMail but not via IMAP. NOW my problem is how to get Outlook App working on iphone. I can get Apple's App to work but the setup of Outlook is different, yet Outlook has a much better Spam filter which as everyone on VM knows is now vital
