The Mailman Doesn't Always Deliver
Posted on 2002-05-30
Outlook Express 5 or 5.5 When receiving e-mail there is the little icon down near the bottom of the screen indicating the e-mail is being received. Once received the number of new messages is displayed. The problem is that the number displayed does not agree with the number of messages received. I suspect that all my messages are not getting through. The number reported is always higher than the number I receive.
I just sent myself an e-mail from my yahoo account to my local ISP account. Outlook Express reported 1 new message but it wasn't displayed so I presume I did not receive it. What's going on ?
I have 20 to 30 e-mail addresses blocked from spammers, and certainly did not block myself.
