Help! I am not receiving e-mails.

Does anyone know how I can fix this problem? I am getting posts that someone is sending me an e-mail and nothing comes, even though I checked off the box saying that I want to receive e-mails.

Thanks!

Hi Daisy-lee,

I sent you a test email via GW yesterday eve about 7PM and asked that you email me if/when you got it.

I'm now going to email you privately (not via GW) and see if you get it. It could be a problem with either GW or your email provider, or maybe even your ISP. I do however suspect GW more than the others though.

Emails via GW have been unreliable at times in the past, which is why I think it is usually best that members show their email addy to members only as you have. That then leaves the option open to email a member and not having to email via GW.

Sue...off to email you now from my email program/site.

I find GW mail is usually dumped in my spam folder on my mail server instead of downloading to my computer. I'm sure there's a way to stop that, but haven't figured it out yet.

Now that's something to consider when I've thought (assumed) all along that the GW email was hit or miss. hmmmm....

Daisy, I sent you an email from my Hotmail on Sun, 10 Oct 2010 08:57:45 -0500, with numerous questions for you. Did you get it? If not, that must prove that the problem is not with GW emails but with something on your end.
