    A friend is sending me emails quite regularly and I am not receiving quite a number of them. Some do get through and are of different size and content. She has deleted my address from her contact list and then replied to my email to her, to give the exact address in her contact list. Still it happens. I have checked my blocked address list and she is not on it. Where to now? :(

    Do you use a web-based (view your email in the web browser) service or do you download your mail with Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird, Windows Live Mail ?

    Also, who hosts your email -- better yet, what is the domain of your email -- dont give the full name, just the part after the @ ( like 'yahoo.com' or 'earthlink.net')

    What is the size of the emails your not getting? If they are to big then you or your friends email server may not be taking it but your friend should get a email back saying something.

    Most all ISP email servers have a 10 MB email size limit.

    I have been given further information from my contact. It appears that when a new name is added to her contact list another name "drops off" the list. My name, being the last one on, is usually the one to do so. Is there a limit of names that a contact list can have?
