How can I start receiving emails again? 0 Recommended Answers 3 Replies 5 Upvotes

2 of my Gmail accounts stopped receiving emails on the same date, July 27th of this year. No matter what I do or where I login, I can’t get any emails from either address, and it isn’t a storage problem.

Please go through the following list of items to try and figure out what is happening to the messages.  It may seem long, but it’s important to check and answer each question in detail.  With luck one of these will either identify the problem so it can be fixed, or provide more clues to figure out the cause. 

Please note:  if you reply saying you “tried everything and it didn’t help” without answering any of the questions, don’t expect any further help.  It's impossible to provide any suggestions without knowing what you found below.

Does your e-mail account end in @gmail.com, or with some other domain name?  If it’s not @gmail.com, what's the domain name?  Is the domain active (not expired) and are the MX records correct?

What are you using to access your Gmail account:  the web interface (https://mail.google.com/), an e-mail client (Apple Mail, Thunderbird), a mobile app (iOS, Android), something else?  Log into the web interface before moving on to the rest of the list.

Have you looked in the “All Mail” label for the missing messages?  What about “Trash” (or “Bin”, but not “[imap]/Trash” or anything else)?  What about “Spam” (but not “Junk” or anything else)?  Be sure to look past the first page if the messages you’re looking for are older.

Have you used the Search Mail function (with the term “in:anywhere”) at the top of the page to look for the missing messages?

Have you check the other category tabs (Social, Promotions, Updates, and Forums) if you use the tabbed Inbox?  Have you checked past the first page of messages, especially if you’re looking for older messages?

Are there any filters listed in:  Settings -> Filters ?  Any blocked addresses listed on that same page?  These could be redirecting messages from the Inbox.

Are there any forwarding accounts setup in:  Settings -> Forwarding ?  These could be archiving or deleting new messages.

Are you fetching e-mail from another account using: Settings -> Accounts -> Check mail from other accounts?  Are these the messages you are not receiving?  Try a Check Mail Now.  If you log into the other account, are there in fact messages present which have not been fetched?

Did the senders get any sort of bounced/failed/rejected messages returned to them (post the full headers here)?

Is the account full?  Looking below the inbox, how much space, out of how much total, does it say is being used?

Have you tried sending yourself a test-message from a non-Gmail account?  Have you tried sending a test-message to that non-Gmail account and replying?  Does either direction work?
