I had a similar problem a while back. All of my friends could not receive emails from my Dishmail account. I received no "bounce" and they never received my emails. I contacted Dishmail and they reported that Yahoo had blacklisted them as an email provider that sent too many spam emails or something along that vein. They said that they were negotiating with Yahoo and recommended that I contact Yahoo as well. I did contact Yahoo and after several complaints to them about this problem along with Dishmail's persistence, Yahoo finally lifted their ban. So the user might want to have his father check with his ISP to see if it's a similar scenario.
I too have e mails that go missing, I thought that my ex boss had got someone to hack into my business email address, but i am still waiting for my ISP to get back to me, is it possible for someone to hack into an e mail address, and put a fliter in, and let some types of mail get through.
The other thing to consider is that sometimes things just "get lost in the mail." Seriously. I've been doing email for work etc. for nearly 2 decades now and periodically messages just disappear in the ether. No reason (and some of these happened long before spam filters etc.), so now when a message is important I either cc myself (so I can see it come back to me and feel somewhat assured it also got to the sender) or better, request a read receipt so I KNOW it got to the sender, or both. If I don't see my message come back to me (when I've cced myself) or get a read receipt in some reasonable period of time, I send it again, just to be sure. When it's business and the files are important, you can't take chances.
I also check in with clients etc. who I think may be sending me things and I haven't seen them when I should, for the same reason.
It may be spam filters, but sometimes it's just the electronic equivalent of bad sorting in the mail room (or worse, a lost mail bag). Which also happens with snail mail more than you care to think about.
I am not receiving email from my daughter and friend both of whom I have written to for a long time. They are not receiving mine either.It upsets me.
Hi, I've can no longer get emails from my dad, it doesn't matter if he replies to one I've sent him or if he sends me a new email, or even if I'm cc'd in - everyone else gets emails from him and I THINK I'm getting emails from everyone else ok just not from my dad. I've checked he's in my safe list. He gets no notification that emails haven't reached me. I really don't know what to do!
I had this same problem for a while, a good friend of mine was sending me emails which i never recieved however he could receive my emails, i found after a lot of searching that he had infact been blocked which was not something i did myself...i used the following steps which solved my problem even though i wasnt aware this person had been blocked, Go to inbox select options on the right hand of the screen, select more options, then under the junk e-mail selection select safe and blocked senders then select blocked senders check to see if the person ur not getting mail from is listed, if they are simply click on there name and select remove from list...i hope this solves ur problem ..it did for me!
I am not receiving any e-mails at all not even junk mails which I used to - I am not too happy about my new situation - I usually received e-mails from hsn.com and qvc.com not nothing. Please tell me how I can changed from hotmail to regular.
For a month now, I have not been receiving emails PERIOD! I have had a hotmail account for 4 years, but this is ridiculous. I feel blind and lost. Who knows what I've missed? I don't want to use my school email for everything, so I am going to drop hotmail and get a gmail account, which I heard, is more reliable. Frustrating!!!!!
Tina's fix worked for me too !!
Thank you Tina, that worked for me too...although I have no idea how anyone got added to that list!!!
