I'm trying to trouble shoot a weird email problem for my parents who use slingshot as their isp.


There is one sender who uses gmail who's messages never get delivered to the slingshot account. (tried multiple devices)


The slingshot account can send to gmail, but replies dont get delivered 99.9% of the time. I have see a one word reply come back, but messages with more than a single word don't (it's only once I've seen a reply, most single word replies dont get delivered).


I've checked using the slingshot webmail interface to see if it is something client side - nope. I've checked the slingshot web interface for filters - nothing.


The sender is my son, so I'm pretty sure there hasn't been anything malicious going in.


I can only guess that there is something flagged in a spam engine at the slingshot end that is dropping these message - can't think of what else it could be.


Any clues?

Hi there,


Would you be able to send us through a message with both email addresses, please? Will take a look at our end and see what's going on.

Still no joy here - unfortunately didn't hear back from PM to slingshot person.


Did some more testing today - I can only guess this is some funkyness in the slingshot spam filer, I can't think of any other cause.




GUserA - Google Apps Account


SUser - Slingshot Account




SUser seems to receive email from everybody except GUserA


SUser can send to GUserA at all times


GUserA can send to everyone else without problems - it's just SUser who doesn't receive emails




GUserA sends SUser an email with no text but with an embedded image - this arrives fine


GUserA send SUser an email with text in - gone, never received, not in any spam folders




I created a new Google Apps Account (same domain), lets call this GUserB, had person using account GUserA sign in as GUserB


Had GUserB send exactly the same email with text that was previously tried - this is received fine.




So GUserB works, GUserA doesn't....  anyone know of any reason how this could happen, I'm lost!
