    I use Outlook Express mail server. Beginning several days ago, each time I receive mail from a friend who uses SBCGlobal mail, it arrives in my Deleted Items box--not in my Inbox.She told me that no other of her correspondents experience this problem with mail from her. As a test, she sent a message to my secondary mail server, Yahoo, and it arrived as it should--in the Inbox. Mail from a couple of others who use SBCGlobal, and mail from all other people, using several other mail programs, arrives in my OE Inbox.

    I am mystified. Something is wrong with my mail program, but why only with mail from one sender? Does anyone have an idea for a fix?

    I suspect you have a filter set on the host mail server. Check your settings.
    e.g., Hotmail, or MSN

    Dan O, thank you for your suggestion. I believe I have identified, and fixed the problem. Looked in my Block Sender list and found my friend there. At some point, when blocking mail from unknown senders, I inadvertenly blocked hers. Have now unblocked hers and expect that I now will receive her mail in my Inbox.

    I now consider this matter solved and closed.
