      Can't send email to myself

      Until recently, I often sent email to myself e.g. copy and paste stuff from websites etc.
      Now, when I try to do this, the email either doesn't arrive at all or goes straight to the "bin"

      I'm sure I've read a thread on here about this problem but I can't find it now and a google search draws a blank.

      Can anyone help?

      If it's gmail or google based it may see an email from yourself as spam and then bin it. You may need to set a rule up on the inbox.

      re: Can't send email to myself

      Have you had a look in your Web mail box? I find that anything I send from my account, Test messages etc, end up there and are not downloaded by Outlook. If I want something to end up in my Outlook box I have to send it from one of my hotmail accounts.

      Re: Can't send email to myself

      A recent recruit to sky email and also suffering from this problem which is extremely annoying as I didn't have this issue with my previous ISP.

      It also loses test emails I send to a society generic email account that re-routes back to me as the relevant officer.

      I have checked every section of my mailbox and they are not being routed to spam or other odd places.

      Any advice welcomed.
