  • Who owns emails stored on an ISPs servers

    Hi All,

    My virgin.net email account has just been deleted by virginmedia apparently along with all the several years worth of emails. I was warned that this might happen over a year ago apparently but I have no recollection of it and no further warnings were issued more recently.

    Do I have any recourse for this deliberate destruction of my data?

    I think the response will be that you are responsible for the backup of your own data.

    But then virgin media and not the most helpful of people.
