Having Email Problems .... Anyone Have Ideas?

Hello everyone...
 I come to you with a major not sure of what's happening.
You see, Sherry from Alabama..(A Happy Valentine) won the red organdy apron in my giveaway. You would think that I could email her, she could email back with her information so I can get the apron in the mail...
I mean, does it get any simpler. Now enter .....perhaps an evvvil grinch that keeps stealing Sherry's emails, cause I'm not getting them., and I can't get the apron in the mail with no home address.
 We've tried two different yahoo email no avail. I'm just not getting her emails. Emails are working with everyone else, just not with Sherry. I've thought maybe her mail was somehow going into the spam area, but I've's not there. I've set the spam filter to let everything in...I just don't know what else to do. Can it be because she is using gmail and I'm using a yahoo account? Does anyone know? We've tried both my yahoo accounts, the regular one that I use here..the one Beverly uses..and I get her mail..
And the one I use for my genealogy..the one my nieces use.. and I get their mail..
So what are we doing wrong?  I want Sherry to have her pretty red apron,.... Help me to get it to her.
Don't give up on me Sherry..Somehow,I will get it to you..


  1. That happened to me once with a giveaway.....I was not getting the email at all. I tried 2 different emails, finally, I gave them my personal email that was with charter, and that email let it in....I don't know why that happens, but it did happen to me. Maybe give her your phone number to call you with her address. I am really no help, but just wanted to say, the yahoo emails I had used for my giveaways did this to me once. good luck....

  2. Did you try having her send to someone else for you, like a friend or relative right near you? Or announce on your blog that if she would give it in a comment, she might do that. So sorry you are having problems with that! Kerrie

  3. Hi Kerrie..
    I had thought that may be what we have to do..perhaps send to someone else,and see if that will get through. I've never had this problem before, so I'm unsure of what to do.

  4. Forgot, Yes, My daughter is a very good sport. She is so much fun to be with and we do a lot of laughing an giggling. Thanks for visiting my Pink Sat. Hugs, Kerrie

  5. I've never had this problem either and I use Gmail. I would be glad for her to email me and I would email you if it would help. Other then that? Sorry just don't know.

  6. I always have problems e mailing anyone from their blog site. I tried to reach Trixie at Flea Market Trixie and gypsynurse to no avail. I am not sure what happens! I think I would call each other! I got three stalkers on my blog recently. really upset me. I hate those because people are telling me they want to spread a virus. Isn'tthat nice? I love this so much. There has got to be a way to make this easy! Good luck!

  7. Hi CC,
    I just sent you an email from my AT&T email account. Let's see if that one makes it! We'll get it through some how!

  8. What a royal pain! There shouldn't be a problem - you could check in Settings > Comments that you have these settings:

    Who Can Comment? Anyone

    Then do this:
    1.Comment Moderation set to Always
    2. YOUR email address in the box below.
    3. NO word verification (it isn't necessary if you have Comment Moderation). But Comment Moderation should ALWAYS be on.
    4. YOUR email address in the Comment Notification Email box.

    In other words, your email address should be there twice. Then you should get all emails sent via the blog, comments or not, anonymous (ie: not a Blogger blog) users etc.

    If this still doesn't sort it, let me know and I'll try to think what else it could be.


I do so enjoy each and every message that is left for me. They sorta make each day a "happy dance day", so please, make sure you leave a comment..Just a hi will make my day all better. :) xx
