sorted this problem so I added account as maxie stated earlier but it wouldn't work ???? been on virgin forums this is a big problem there but simple to fix, know I know, there may be other ways to fix this but if u add an account in the normal way with "virginmedia" tag u will end up this problem done it twice now

so open windows live male
click on account
select properties
select servers
then in the box for incoming mail server change the shortened name "gumtree001" to full address gumtree001@virginmeadia.com
tick apply
ok
all should work ps that's not a real email address
