    Default Stupid f*cking e-mail!

    I started a Gmail account so I had a secondary e-mail address to use when I didn't want to give out my more personal one, but I've been having problems with it from the start. I can mail people and they receive and can read the mail but they can't reply to me as it gets bounced back as undeliverable. Only one person has been able to manage it so far, and that was by replying directly through the message I had sent, but other people have tried the same thing and are still getting their messages returned to them. However I do get mail from automated systems (such as PM notifications etc) without a problem.

    I've looked through the settings and can't see anything that might explain this fuckery so would really appreciate it if anyone had any suggestions on how to resolve this (and suggestions for a secure and reliable free alternative would also be welcome in case I give up on this and try again elsewhere).

    ^I'm the same...try emailing yourself from another email account to troubleshoot
    the problem.

    Yeah this is what's confusing me as my private e-mail that I don't generally give out is also Gmail and that's not giving me any problems (not like Hotmail used to). I've already tried mailing myself from that one and it gets bounced back to me just the same.

    I starting to think I'm going to have to scrap the secondary account and try again.

    What error message do people get when their email bounces? Does it matter whether there's an attachment with the email?

    ^^ It's a non-issue now. I've jacked it off and started a fresh account and for some reason that one seems to be working just fine. I'm just chalking it up to be one of the baffling mysteries of technology.

    ^^ Whu? My what and what?

    Sorry, I'm not techy at all, which is one of the reasons why I went with Gmail so all I had to do was set up a user name and password.

    But as I said, the brand new addy is working just fine and I've already had a couple of mails from people that I'd had to message about the other naffed up account.
