    I am not able to send emails, from work to my home, since January of this year. Up until January all my emails would go okay. I can send from home to work okay. I am not getting any undeliverable messages when I mail home. I have checked spam folders and they are not there. I checked that I am on safe senders list, I never had to do this before, then again I not been in the position of not receiving work emails at home.
    At home we have Windows Live Email 2011.
    At work it is Microsoft Outlook 2010.
    Thanks
    Sorry, I don't have a spam folder, just a junk folder.

    Is your incoming and outgoing servers the same domain? (ie gmail.com)

    Who are your e-mail providers on both ends?

    Click on File on the top, then account settings. Highlight your account and click on change.

    Are you not able to send e-mails from your .EDU account at work to your personal Yahoo! e-mail account?

    ;)

    BC when you said you checked the spam folders, are you talking about the spam folder online?

    E-mail client settings wouldn't prevent sending e-mails from one address to another. I thought it best to clarify the issue before moving forward with checking or changing settings especially on a work computer.

    I send it to my Windows Live mail but it doesn't show up. When I send from work it never comes back as undeliverable, so it must be getting through somewhere.

    log into your Yahoo! E-Mail online and check the spam folder there.

    Do you have another E-Mail account you can send to? If not, I can PM you a dummy account that I have to see if you are able to send out to a Yahoo! account.

    I have sent emails to another account and individuals, with no issue. The issue, my guess, is, something going on with the home computer.
