Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Expert:  Isaac Franklin replied 5 months ago.

Not sure why you downloaded the app caller VPN?

I would uninstall that before you start.

What is H.K?

What device is not getting email 'in' and can you email out?

To get started, I need to know what type of computer you are using, a Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10 or a Mac.

If its a Mac, please check the OSX version as follows, Click the apple sign at the top left of your screen, then click about this mac. And then where it says version, send that to me as a reply.

Hello there I just came back from HK and had no problem sending gmail. You don't need to use a VPN as HK doesn't use the bamboo firewall.

Firstly try to log into

​If she can send email that way and she uses a programme to send email such as Outlook, make sure that the Outlook smtp and pop is configured correctly for Gmail such as the photos below.

Expert:  hongkongpom replied 5 months ago.

Hello please reply to this question. You don't need to open another question. I'll get the other question closed for you.

​If she is able to send you gmails by logging into and you are not receiving them, please check your spam folder in your email system to see if they are there. Are you getting emails from other people with no problem?

​If you send her and email and she replies to that do you receive it please?

Here is the issue the site she on cost a huge amount to write and receive letters and they block out contact info.
I was able to get my email by address to her by code and she sent many letters and i never received any. I have let her know how to put in my gmail address and am trusting that she is doing it correctly. Is there any way to look for lost or blocked emails sent from Hong .Kong. to my address but may not have go through because of a cap was used or a dot?
Expert:  hongkongpom replied 5 months ago.

Hello again from what I am understanding she is using a website to send emails to your gmail address? If there is a problem sending emails from this site then the best thing to do is for her to get her own gmail account and then go to There she can send you emails directly.

​If she misspells your gmail address but there is someone with that gmail, address then she won't get a bounce message because it would have been delivered successfully; albeit to the wrong person. However if the gmail address that she types in does not exist then Gmail will bounce it back saying undeliverable.

​The only entity that can investigate problems sending gmails from a site, is the site itself.
