I am a member of a group that has a group distribution email. Both members on it that have Spectrum email accounts do not receive emails from the group account. The emails do not appear in the Spam folder. I have set the email address as being "safe" in my settings but the emails still do not arrive. Is there any way of knowing if Spectrum has blocked an account?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes. Both of us with Spectrum accounts can receive individual emails from the sender with the same domain name as the group emails. Neither of us receive the group email, and the sender receives no notification that the group email is not delivered to us.
I suspect this is due to the size of the group list. I would encourage the sender to try and split the group (if this is the case) into a few smaller groups. It may be hitting our server and being stalled due to the number of recipients.
Do you know if the size of the email themselves are large? Do you know if other Spectrum customers are able to receive the emails?
The list includes 30 members. What is the limit on list size that Spectrum prevents?
If the number of recipients is preventing delivery, would the order matter? That is, if my address was listed first on the recipient order, would the mail come through?
Yes, there is one other Spectrum member on the list, and he does not receive any of the emails either. We recently had a test email sent, which was only one sentence long, and so the size of the actual mail is minimal.
I agree that the issue, as described, is an issue with the sender and not an issue with the receiver. Most likely, the sender has been blocked. You can direct the sender to contact Spamhaus to determine if emails are being blocked.
