Is blocking some of my emails?

Question: Is blocking some of my emails?

Hi all, have changed my email to so I do not keep changing my address when I change servers. Some emails that I am expecting are not arriving. Ebay always send an email after you order and they always come through straight away, placed 2 orders but no emails. Some sites are sending an email when I order. Does anyone know how I fix this assuming it is the account.
Thank you
Michelle Mead

Preferred Solution: Is blocking some of my emails?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The question really says all about what I want to do, or need help on. I recently signed up for a new outlook account to try out the new outlook preview and I've set up gmail to automatically forward new messages to my outlook account so that I can use outlook to manage my gmail account.

Do any of you know how I would be able to forward the old messages, and not the new ones, to my outlook? I already know that they can be fetched into outlook by outlook's very own service, forwarding would be faster, so..?! Also, since I now use outlook to send email on behalf of my gmail account, how do I make it sync each email I send using outlook with my gmail - so that gmail has it all?

TY in advance. Please do help.

Hey guys.

I have sygate personal firewall. It's normally completely fine, but just a a little while ago, I tried going to gmail (using mozilla firefox) but sygate "prevented application firefox.exe from accessing the network". Google and other sites worked fine. Gmail wouldn't work till I turned off the firewall (something I'm not comfortable doing.

I checked my applications list and firefox is on the allowed list so I'm not sure WHAT is going on, especially since it was working earlier today.

Answer:Sygate is blocking gmail

I haven't used Sygate in quite some time, but it is an excellent program.
Changes in the firefox.exe file (due to an update) can cause this behavior.
I'd suggest creating a new rule to allow the current firefox.exe to access the internet.

I am trying to setup "Send mail as" via Gmail with an alias. I added the alias (which is just a forwarder. I don't actually have a mailbox on the other server, it just forwards to whatever address I give it) and Google wants to verify that the account is mine.

Problem: I never receive the verification message.

I am able to receive mail on Gmail via the forwarder. If I send an email to [email protected] it will forward to gmail and show up in my inbox.

I have tried other accounts such as Yahoo Mail, my ISP's webmail and a few "disposable email address" services, so obviously it is the forwarder that is blocking mail from Google's verification service.

If I set up "Send mail as" on Yahoo Mail, it does work. I really don't want to use Yahoo mail. I would rather use Gmail. As you can see by my profile photo, I'm kind of into Google.

I can probably set up a mail client and just set a "send mail as" from within the mail client if necessary.

I have Mozilla Thunderbird, which I use for AOL, GMAIL and my university's email account and today it started that when I open Thunderbird, AOL with automatically open as well.

Also, in some of my emails they are "multi-part MIME" and I think blocking html from working. I am not sure since I don't know too much. IN Thunderbird I can no longer click on the links in the emails.

I use GMAIL in Thunderbird but the messages on the servers website and in Thunderbird don't match, as in if I delete in Thunderbird it is still there on the website's server. I am not sure if this is normal but GMAIL puts every email I write in my inbox both in Thunderbird and the server. Also, I have read you can use hotmail with Thunderbird but have made several unsuccessful attempts to integrate the two.

Question: blocking emails

I have hotmail account for close to 3 years now, the problem that's I'm facing now is that blocking unwated email. It wasn't a problem initially coz hotmail allows us to block it. However, I cannot do that any more coz the blocking lists are full. max allowed is 200.

Is there any advise? I hate receiving mails like promotional stuffs, university diploma for cheap, XXX, lucky winner etc.

My friend told me the best alternative is to create a new account. I hope this is not true...

Answer:blocking emails

Use Hotmails bulk mail option, that should limit your pain ! that list is purged 15 days from message sent, so they drop off accordingly. as for your problem with junk mail, I reccomend getting a e-mail from a server who offers such free I/E yahoo or excite and using that for contact or update info, thus keeping your main account spam free ( mostly)god luck ! ...Rhett

Answer:Hotmail blocking my emails

More likely your email address has been spoofed by spammers using it to hide thier email address, and has been blacklisted. I've been fighting this problem for years.

Another possibility is your computer is a zombie (infected with malware), sending email out when you aren't looking. You might think about following the procedure spelled out in the malware forum to see if this is the case.

As to getting a response from hotmail, you might see if you're friends or family using hotmail can leave feedback with MSN to resolve the issue. They are a lot more likely to pay attention to a customer than a potential spammer.

I have just installed AVG Free Ver 7.5 and it is blocking my sending web pages in the body of emails. I am running XP SP2 on my desktop and using Outlook 2003 as my email client and IE 6 as my browser. With the browser open and on a page I want to sent to someone, I pull down the Tools menu and click on the top item which is email & news. I then click on 'Send Page' and it opens a composition window with the web page in the body. If I then send that to someone, AVG blocks the entire web page and the only thing that comes through is AVG's message that the email has been scanned. I did not have this problem with Norton.
Does anyone have a suggestion on how to fix the problem and still use AVG and have it scan the email?

I have two gmail accounts.   Before Firefox 57.0.3, I had no troubles, everything worked, I could access them through the gmail "button" icon, or the word "gmail" up in the corner of the google page.   The new Firefox "quantum", version 57, installed itself, and once I figured out where everything was, there was no problem.  Then there was an update to 57.0.2, again, no problem.
AS SOON AS the 57.0.3 update of the new Firefox was installed, the next time I opened Firefox, the gmail button icon changed to a "sign in" box.  When I clicked the box, used my link, or clicked the "gmail", I got a notice that there were "problems with my cookie settings".    Nothing in gmail would work, and my google "search suggestions" disappeared..

Hi topazbest

What e-mail program are you using?

If you are using Outlook Express, you can create a Rule based on the Subject line and what it does *not* contain and have the rule move those messages to the Deleted Items folder or a folder of your own creation in Outlook Express.

I have a customer who I set up a Vpop3 Enterprise mail server for some time ago.   Its been working fine and they recently updated and paid for the Pro Avast on all computers.  For some reason around the same the mail server stopped recieving any emails.  Also they have one PC that just receives everything directly into an Outlook account and thats not working either.
If you turn off the Mail shield all the emails come flooding in.  Obviously this is not ideal.  Its just possible thier email provider has changed something but they are impossible to talk to. 
I dug around on the Avast site and forum and it seems you need to go into Mail shield settings and Expert settings and turn off SSL encryption but I am a little lost at this stage and dont want to start turning things on or off until I know what the implications are.
I hope someone can perhaps offer me some advice on this.

Answer:Avast Pro blocking incoming emails

I see you have also started a topic here at the avast forms and have been receiving some suggestions. The last one was a link to enabling the Mail Shield SSL scanning when encountering issues after an upgrade.You also mentioned contacting Avast support and nothing...does that mean you submitted a ticket and they never answered you or did not provide any useful information?If you did not hear anything, how long ago did you submit your ticket?I'm not sure how many or if any BC members use Vpop3 Enterprise mail server with avast so you may not get many suggestions here. Same goes at the avast forums since most of their folks are also volunteers and may not have actual hands on experience. Looking around the forums I found several similar topics from last year but no one appeared to get a satisfactory answer so I suspect they don't know either.I would keep pestering avast Tech Support until you receive a satisfactory answer. In the meantime I will also poke around some more and see if I can find any further information that addresses your issue.

Answer:AT&T & Mediacom blocking emails HELPPPPPPPPPPP

When one ISP blocks emails from another one, it's usually done on the basis the the one being blocked has been identified as having poor security or allowing spammers to operate.

But to be very clear, it will not be your email address that is specifically blocked, it will be everyone that uses your ISP mail server.

It is something that the two ISP's need to work out but you should lodge the complaint with your ISP, you have no contractual relationship with any other in the matter.

These things do happen from time to time and are usually resolved between the ISP's in a few days or so. There are "lists" of ISP servers that have been identified as allowing spam to be sent from them. If a company bases their blocking process on those lists. then the blocking of all email to everyone using that ISP server is affected, it's unlikely to be anything related to just your email address. You share the server with thousands of others...

Answer:Barracuda RBL blocking all emails this morning?

That netblock is a roadrunner allocation. I would not expect to get mail from that netblock.

blocking cable provider ranges is standard practice to clamp down on spam.

A couple of years ago I went onto broadband and BT blocked a port which prevented me sending emails. I registered my own website which resolved the problem. Recently BT have again blocked a port and I am now unable to send emails. BT say that they have a policy of not transmitting emails except for approved ISP's. I do not wish to change my email addresses or to register with another ISP. Has anyone got a permanent work around for this problem. Does anyone know of a broadband supplier who will let me use my existing email addresses.

Answer:BT Broadband blocking outgoing emails

I'm not sure which port you are using, but isn't it possible for you to send the email using on port 110 as normal, but the identity still remains as for example; yourname this will look like it is being sent by you from Lycos, but in fact it's sent through btinternet. The only way anyone would know would be if they went to the bother of checking the headers.

Ok where I work we use Outlook Express I think 2007.

I work for a city gov. We have several "users" that send 5 to 10 "junk" Emails a day. When a holiday is comming its up to 50 emails per day from these people. The city calls this spam "Email BLASTS" some internal advert campaign for ALL the crap thats happening in the city IE concerts, parades ETC.

Here is the question: How do I block an internal user in Express?

When I try to add them to the blocked list I get a message that says...........

"The E-mail address for the sender (senders name) is internal to your organization and cannot be added to the Blocked Sender list, Email from senders in your organization will never be treated as junk E-mail."

If anyone knows a way to block it that would be great....I allready got in yelled at for sending all the mail back to the senders!

Sorry for the long winded post.

Every once in a while I'll have an email discussion with someone blow up.  All of the emails are open, and they are in backwards order each in indenting a little off from the other one on their left margins, and they form a kind of systematic tree where they branch off of each other systematically.
I can't figure out how to put them back into order, and close them.  
After that the gmail thread is totally shot, so I have to begin in another one.  
It's done this for years. 

Answer:Why does gmail blow up the emails?

You need to post screen shots.   I have never seen Gmail "permanently unthread" a threaded discussion though you can change views.  The relationship is in the e-mail headers themselves and all the e-mail client (or web interface) does is use that information to create a threaded view/conversation view.

Hi,Just recently the emails that were going into my WLM account are being redirected
into my gmail account.
I sent a test email from WLM which goes into my sent folder but not my inbox.
Is there a way to set it up so that gmail goes to gmail account and my emails
go into my WLM account.
Thanks for any help.
OS is Wndows 7 64bit

Answer:WLM emails going into my gmail account.

Hello Tommy,

What do you mean by "WLM account" ?
Is this an, or, or ISP (btinternet), or ... account?
WLM (Windows Live Mail) is a Client (installed on PC) email program and can have many email accounts.
Do you have multiple accounts setup in WLM?
Every email provider I know of also has a WEB site where the user can read/send/manage email.
Are you using WLM for some email, and WEB email for other email?
Each email provider may offer different protocols such as IMAP, POP, MAPI and that can make a difference in what folders are used for a client program such as WLM.

Then there's a "Windows Live account" if that's what you're talking about, and Skype can affect things from what I've read...

Below is a screen print from WLM 2012 showing my "WLM accounts".
I have 2 hotmail accounts here - 1 is MAPI, and 1 is a gmail and outlook account...
I mainly use Office Outlook for all my email, but I do use WLM on "test" systems for email that I know I don't need to keep ...

As you said it's a "recent change", can you restore to a point before the problem started?
Do you know what changed to start the problem - Patch Tuesday updates perhaps?

I have just recently converted from using Windows Live Mail for my email to Gmail. Mainly because there was not an easy way to sync my contacts between WLM and my Android smartphone. Syncing is much better now, but the system differences is taking some getting used to. I notice when I am using Gmail and search for a past email, many times Gmail doesn't find it. I try it searching by contact name, by contact email address, and by subject. Of course, I can scroll back through my old emails and find it manually, but it is frustrating that Gmail cannot spot it quickly. It seems to have the most trouble when I am trying to find a SENT email. Sometimes, one I just sent yesterday. I click on the "Sent Mail" folder and the search box shows "in:sent". I type the info and nothing is found. I have tried it backspacing over the "in:sent", and with leaving the "in:sent" in place before my info. Neither way seems to help. Is there a setting I am missing?

I already know how to 'forward future incoming emails' using the rule option, but what I'm hoping to do is to move all the old emails that are already in the OWA. Is there anyway that I can do this without forwarding each email one by one ? (I have 300 ish emails!).

A long time back, all my emails started going into my allmail box instead of my inbox.
Most of the time, that doesn;t bother me. But there are times, when i lose focus on the allmail.
Then I have to try and remember the shortcut to get back to allmail, or to go the sibebar, where Inbox is on top and below that "important" and so on. But to get to allmail, you have to go down to more, and find AllMail as a submenu in that. It might even be necessary to make the browser page smaller, so you can see the More menu.
So is it possible to either (a) get messages to go into inbox, or to bring Allmail up to the top of the sidebar, where Inbox is located.
The second one would be my first choice, as that's where my most of all my emails are ie in allmail.
But if i can only do the first thing ie get messages to appear in my inbox, is there a way to move all mails in my allmail box to my inbox?

update. Okay, after all these years, i have found out that all mail refers to archived mail.
So if all my mail is going into archived mail, does that mean that at one stage, i chose to have all my mail be archived. Perhaps I hit something invaderntly.
I came upon this, because I had another question about Archived mail. I was wondering if I was looking at mail, in all mail, and ticked a post, and chose to archive it, and then deleted it, was it still in the archive. But as I am in the archive (all mail) I am deleting it from the archive, or am I.

Answer:how do i get all my new emails in gmail to go to my inbox?

all mail refers to archived mailClick to expand...

No, All Mail is exactly what it says. Mail in every location: Inbox, any folders you created, archived emails, trash and spam.
There is a label in front of the subject line telling you where that particular email is located.
When you delete from the archive it moves to trash. You will see it in All Mail with Trash in front of the subject.
You can also see it if you open Trash.

Go to settings: (gear icon) then click on labels. If you cahnge All Mail from Hide to Show it will appear at the top rather than having to click the arrow aside of More.

How do people do this?

I can see one advantage of doing this because I could use any computer or mobile device to log into my Gmail account and check my business emails. Our current set up would require me to lug around my laptop.

Does this have something to do with the domain mapping options?

Are there any disadvantages to doing it this way? Will the original email still 'live' on our business server so it can be retrieved via Outlook 2010?

I wanted my reply to only go to the first response, as this was his instructions for collection, but, to my horror, the reply went to the second responder (only) and, judging from the email I then got back from that responder, included both initial responses.
Not only do I have to honour an unintentional offer, but the email address of the first responder has been compromised.
This new streaming concept has very important flaws. Clearly, now clicking reply to you still need to check who the email is going to before you send it, and it looks like you also can't be certain quite what you are sending - perhaps its better to start a new email and cat and paste as required to show what you are responding to.

cant i delete all the emails in the spam folder instead of only 100 at a time?

Answer:thousands of emails in gmail spam


So if you click in the spam folder the link "Delete all spam messages now" it doesnt delete all spam messages?

To be honest if your getting 1000s of spam emails a day/week/month I would be creating a new Gmail account as that one will only keep getting those volumes of spam as its now on many spam email lists, which is why its wise to keep your main email account only for friends and create a sperate one/s for signing upto forums, newletters etc

I have a gmail account that has received emails from paypal, which contain customer email addresses. Since I can't access emails past a month in paypal, it would be ideal if I could get every email address in an email sent by paypal to me and then copy it to a text file. I'd like to use the list for mass mailing product reminders, etc. Before I spend the time to write a script, has anyone heard of software that will do that? Thanks for your help!

If that sounded confusing, I need a script that will search through a specified set of emails, extract every address in those emails, and then copy them to a txt file.

Answer:How can I extract all emails from a Gmail account?

Sorry but this cant be done. At least not by hacing the script go online and search GMail. Now if you use something like Thunderbird, Outlook or Windows Live Mail that stores the mail locally, then you might be able to do something. But AFAIK nothing like this exists.

Hi All,

I use outlook for about 4 email addresses (work and personal). I also do volunteer work for a charity and have an email address for that which is a gmail account.

I have tried repeatedly to set this gmail account up in Outlook but it didn't work. The only way I have found is to have two separate outlook account where I choose if I want to open my normal account of the charity account but cannot do both at the same time.

This is very frustrating as I need to be able to see my calendar and contacts when using the charity account.

Please help

I primarily use Windows Mail for my work at home job. I also have a Gmail account so I can check for e-mails on my iphone when I'm out. I want to have it set up so that the emails show up in both places, Windows Mail and Gmail.

Currently if my desktop computer is turned off and my Windows Mail program is not open, the incoming emails only go to Gmail and not Windows mail. OR, if my computer is up and running but the Windows mail doesn't happen to be open, the emails only go to Gmail and not Windows Mail. Seems like if my browser (IE8) is open but windows mail is not open, emails will only go to Gmail.

Do I have some settings wrong which would make the emails not show up in Windows Mail?

I am running Windows Vista, 64 bit.

Thank you for any suggestions.

Answer:Emails sometimes go to gmail and not windows mail

Hi lindalo5032,

While researching for this issue, found a link which might help in fixing the issue: Leaving Mail on the Server with Windows Mail | Tiger Technologies Support

Ensure to check the box ?Leave a copy of messages on the server? and uncheck ?Remove from server after? and ?Remove from server when deleted from deleted items?. Click Apply and then OK.

Check if the new messages appear in Windows Mails and Gmail.

Please post the results.

For years I have used my own domain email addresses hosted with Gmail for all my email requirements, and have had no problems. My settings with Gmail are such that the message on the server is deleted once it has been accessed via Thunderbird.
One thing confuses me though. If I am away on holiday, I sometimes access my messages directly from Gmail using a tablet, and as most of them are unimportant, I then delete them manually from Gmail and then also delete them from the 'bin' folder. However, when I return home at the end of the holiday and switch on my PC, all the messages are then downloaded to Thunderbird, though I have deleted them previously.
Obviously the reason for accessing them on holiday is to avoid having hundreds of messages when I return home, but clearly I am failing to achieve this. Can somebody please explain why this happens, and how I stop it.
