I sent an email from my Homestead account that went to multiple people including a private email account for myself.  I have not received the email at my private account yet (already checked spam) and I sent it like 15 minutes ago.  It's an urgent email.  I can only presume no one else has received it yet.  Any explanation/information??

Sorbs black listed me and thus far, no one has helped, although promised long ago. In my case, Metrocast uses the SORBS list. The last I was told, Fairpoint (our Iphone and internet provider) didn't "like" the people that Homestead uses. I send my mail to my aol account and then sent out from there. Why don't big businesses have the same problems that we tend to have with Homestead?

Richard3460,

As real time blacklists are 3rd party services, we are very limited in what we can do. We request de-listing, but they don't have to do it. They may also require a "fine", which we might pay if it actually guaranteed us to be de-listed, but it doesn't.

Please read about our spam filter and understand that we first punish the individual email by blocking it. If it persists, then we block the individual domain. Many RBLs like Sorbs don't do it that way. They simply block an entire mail server for the actions of potentially as few as 10 emails. I hope you understand that we feel our filter is more fair to everyone.

Joshua2161, We would need to see the source of the email so wwe can trace it and see where it may have gone to.

The source code of the email you sent. You can go to the sent objects folder and select the email and then click the view source button near the top of the email.

What part do you need to see?  I'm not posting the whole thing here, it has everyone's email addresses as well as the content of the email.

If I don't see the whole thing then we may miss the problem. Can you create a private topic and post it to that? Only you and I will see it.

If you like, I can delete it after we are done.

Drew, I"m creating a private topic because none of my emails are sending, apparently.
