Emails not arriving

Go to solution

Over the past few months 5bemails from one email address have failed to arrive. Another from a different email address failed to arrive this week. I asked for it to be sent to my husband's email address -also@@btinternet.com address. It failed to arrive. There is nothing (unusually absolutely nothing) in spam folders, nor have either email addresses or domains been blocked by us - we don't know the email addresses as they didn't arrive from either of business. I can't find anything in our settings to account for this. BT seems to have randomly blocked these 2 email addresses.

Happens all the time unfortunately, the BT mail spam filtering is a complete and utter shambles. If you need to ensure important emails arrive, use a Gmail address.

What BT regard as absolute spam doesn't arrive in your spam folder, it is deleted at the server. If it didn't, your spam folder would receive thousands of emails a day. Unfortunately, the BT spam algorithms are about as much use as an ashtray on a motorbike.

The only mail that goes to your spam folder is what BT regard as indeterminate for the user to decide whether it is spam or not.
