no. the email is on a work computer. I'm on webmail
Email technician: Jason Jones, Computer Technician replied 1 month ago

Who is your e-mail provider? Please, do not enter your full email address. If you do that, it will be blocked. For that reason, please tell me what comes after the @ sign.

I am not familiar with that mail server.

It will be difficult for me to attempt to locate the culprit in your case without remotely connecting.

For this reason, I am opting out of the question and allowing another expert the chance to help.

The next expert will see all that is on this page, so there will be no need to repeat anything.

When another expert picks this up, you will be notified by email.

Thank you for your patience.

Windows. Outlook. They are not in junk mail.
Email technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 1 month ago

You mentioned you are on webmail. So you can access the email is webmail and in your MS Outlook software? What version of Outlook are yo using?

Also, are the emails still missing when you access it in webmail?

I use outlook on my work computer (not sure whichversion) and webmail at home, where I am now (no gmail). I went into work to confirm that gmails were not coming through there as well.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I was getting gmails fine early yesterday, but sometime overnight they stopped coming through.
Email technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 1 month ago

This is a university email I believe. Can you please tell me your email username (you already posted your domain name) so that I can try sending from my Gmail and see if I get a failure notification?

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I already tested this from a gmail account and there was no error. Username: dmatteson

Thank you. Please give me a moment.

Email technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 1 month ago

I just sent you a test email using my Gmail and I have not received failure delivery notification yet.

If you are in your webmail now, can you please check for me if you have a FILTER there that deletes email automatically?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
How do I find that?
Email technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 1 month ago

It is usually in SETTINGS. I am not seeing your screen so I cannot provide much details. Please check if there are command buttons there for Settings, or a gear icon, to go to the Settings of your email account on the webmail.

I checked don't move email to my junk email folder
Email technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 1 month ago

Ok. How about filters? or Rules? I am referring to a filter because in most email systems, filters are used to automatically "do something" with incoming emails that "fits criteria". For example, a filter can be created to automatically delete an email if the domain is @gmail.com.

Also, please check your TRASH. If this is done by a filter, then the deleted emails could be in Trash.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
nothing in trash. I don't find filters or rules
Email technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 1 month ago

Can you capture a screen shot of your webmail so that I can check if you missed something? But there are webmails also that does not have that feature especially in your case that your email is controlled by the university. The next thing that you can do is contact your university IT team that controls your email service to confirm to them if they are blocking or filtering Gmail. But what we can only do are the controls that you have on the webmail.

Please capture a screenshot and then attach it here in your reply using the Add Files button or Paper clip icon.

I will check with my university IT
Email technician: Jess M., Computer Support Specialist replied 1 month ago

Yes please do so. Your email account is governed by the school and I believe you have limited control over it. In this case or type of problem, it is best to do the troubleshooting on the webmail (not Outlook) since the emails are actually there.

If you searched and there are no settings for filters, then the problem could be not within your control already. Also, I believe you did not add such auto-delete-gmail type of filter on your account since you are not even seeing the filters in your webmail.

The problem here could be latency as well. I am not receiving an FDN (Failure Delivery Notification) yet with my test email sent to you. So the university email server could have some latency issue -- that is, emails will still be received later -- if they did not filter emails. So please try checking with your IT and from there we will see the bigger picture. If you need to wait for Gmail emails to arrive in your Inbox, or if they are filtered out by the university.

In any case, please let me know. I will be happy to assist you further.

Best regards,

Jess
