I receive no response when I send emails to anonymous craigslist email recipient

I have tried using different email clients/accounts

I think it could be my ip

The solution I can think of is using website for 'watch united states video websites from outside united states'.

Is this the best solution?

I'm not sure I'm following you on this... are you based outside the US?  If I'm following your thought process I think you're talking about your emails messages being dropped or filtered out before the recipient gets them due to your country of origin which is identifiable by your IP.

Am I following you correctly?  If not, can you reply with a bit more information?

Thanks...

I think that is what it means; in which case I have never heard of such an issue. If it was bounced there should have been a message; alternatively, you can simply try and register an email address with a US based provider such as Google. Worst case scenario get a secure VPN service such as "SecurityKISS" which will allow you to connect to a proxy in another country.

I agree though that more information would be good.

EMJSR,

*IF* the case is what I'm interpreting so far then it is definitely possible that emails from outside the US can be auto-dropped depending on the security systems in place on the recipient side.

Just as an example I have a Barracuda Spam & Virus firewall in place at my office and it has a feature to automatically drop any email from domains or source IP addresses in whatever country I add to the list.

Ultimately I have no clue right now about what the real issue is that the OP is having... hopefully we'll get more info and go from there...
