GMail messages not arriving

by Bob Stovall 17 replies
I have a GMail account I use for testing deliverability of my mailing lists.

Over the past several days, I have sent a few broadcast emails which arrived in all of my accounts OK except my GMail account. They aren't in the spam folder, they just never seem to have arrived. At the same time, my autoresponder messages from the same account arrived OK.

Has anybody else experienced this and does anyone have any idea what could cause it?

    Thanks Hugo,

    I just tried again and the mail came through. Not the ones from the last three days though. They seem to have gone to that big electron round-up in the sky.

    Hey Bob it happens from time to time. But I wouldn't worry about it. You probably just lost a heap of Traffic Fusion spam...or should that be "desired and requested useful, valuable information pertaining to the upcoming launch of the soon to be popular marketing application Traffic Fusion

    I just got a call from a customer this morning actually. He'd been sending me email for 2-3 days and I had no idea. Turns out it was being sent to me from gmail. No clue where it disappeared to, but soon as he sent from his main/regular email it came in without problem.

    I have also had some problems with them lately, starting a couple of weeks ago. I thought it had something to do with some upgrades they are doing in their system, and incompatibility with my browser. I have IE6. Their blog says they updated their system to run with IE6, as long as you have all the updates and patches on it that are the most current stuff. I figured I do not have all that stuff. Their new changes were even freezing up my computer.

    Then I found out that some of my emails during that time period were not being delivered, even when my computer was not frozen.

    So I just clicked the button in my gmail accounts to use the basic html. I don't have all the nice features now, but at least it seems to be working again. Perhaps you can try that.

        I keep getting bashed on this forum for giving my opinion about why people continue to play ball with GMAIL despite numerous threads about it's "hackability" etc.

        So I won't say anymore except that while a certain somone told me to shut up cuz GMAIL was so great...she forgot to mention that she posted that response on the same thread....that was all about how it was getting hacked!

        LOL. Believe it or not.

        I'll stick with AOL, Verizon, and/or even the ******* red headed step child of email...HOT MAIL. We don't seem to get hacked as much as you'se people at gmail.

        And we seem to have far less overall problems...too.

          I do get a few very rare goofy problems with gmail also, but so far will
          go with some pretty strong advantages they have. Everything changes
          though, and you never know when a corporation has turned a corner
          and is now headed downhill.

              Thank goodness it's not just me. I had asked around and no one has been having issues like this with gmail. I've been having off and on issues like this for months. Emails that don't arrive to me, emails that don't go to the recipient, attachments that are no longer attached when they get to the other person...etc.

              The only reason I don't work with the other emails is because they have a tendency to get blocked a lot. I have to set up Outlook or Thunderbird or something and work strictly with my domain mails.

    I actually only use GMail, Yahoo, Hotmail, AOL, etc. to test that my emails are coming through. 99% of my mail goes through my own email accounts at my own domains and I never have deliverability or hacking issues with them.

    I use gmail all the time and have never heard of that. The tests I send from get response seem to work ok.

    Gmail seems to have this problem with me too...

    I use four different autoresponder companies and it happens with all of them... but only to my Gmail testing accounts...

    Gmail has gone berzerk! Ever since the spam filter update its harder and harder to get emails through to my customers using Gmail...

    I actually get emails from customers saying they haven't received any emails since they purchased or didn't receive their bonuses and it is ALWAYS from Gmail accounts...

    So my suggestion - stay away from Gmail and ask your customers to use a non-gmail email or at the very least white list your email (which still does not guarantee Gmail will deliver it)...

    Hope this helps
