Virgin Media: No further emails can be sent in this way

Virgin Media said "no further emails are able to be sent in this manner" after some of its customers complained they were being spammed following a group email.

A Virgin Media spokesperson said:

A small proportion of our customers have received an email from one of our suppliers which, if they reply-all, it is sent to a wider group.

We’re investigating exactly what has happened ... We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
