Subsidiary email account not receiving emails

Yesterday one of my subsidiary email accounts stopped receiving emails.  I have contacted Comcast and was told a trouble ticket has been filed, but it has been 36 hours since I received any emails and I am concerned that there may be some important ones.

 

I have tried Xfinity, Firefox, Windows 7, Outlook but none of them receive emails for this one account.  My primary account and two other subsidiary accounts are working fine.

 

Help!

Re: Subsidiary email account not receiving emails

Have you checked the Spam folder for that account?

 

Have you tried sending it an email from another mail provider?  If so do you get any kind of error message?

Yes I have checked the spam folder.  It is empty.

 

I have sent messages to the account from another provider.  No message and no error message.

Re: Subsidiary email account not receiving emails

mackschwing, can you send me a private message with the email address of your subsidiary account you are having problems with?

Re: Subsidiary email account not receiving emails

I assume you are using only Xfinity webmail, and not an email client like Outlook or Thunderbird?  Can you send OK with the account in question?  Do emails from that address get to their destination?

Re: Subsidiary email account not receiving emails

If you click on my name to the left of this post, it will take you to my info page.  There should be a link there with the text 'Send this user a private message'.

Re: Subsidiary email account not receiving emails

It appears your Email Safe List has become enabled which is causing all of your incoming emails to get dropped.  To disable your Email Safe List, use the following steps:

 

Sign in with your Primary Account Username
Click on ACCOUNT at the top of the page
Click on the Users&Settings Preferences tab
Click on the username having the issue
Click on EMAIL SETTINGS
Turn off the Safe List.

 

(Thanks to CCCarole for those steps)

Re: Subsidiary email account not receiving emails

Unfortunately not, sorry.  By that being enabled, the messages were all discarded.
