When I send an email to myself it does not show up in my inbox but does show in my sent folder. Is there a way to get it to show in the inbox?

Thanks

This may be caused by the server. It detects you sending yourself messages. Since this is often a spammer trick, the server blocks it. Use a web browser to log into your mailbox and see if the server-side junk folder has your messages.

Thanks, Brian. I turned off my "spamblocker" at my server and that solved the problem. Now I need to find out how to keep "spamblocker" on and still receive my email to myself.

Outlook is a mail client. You must use it with a mail service like gmail or the mail service offered by your Internet Service Provider.

Brian, I use earthlink as my mail service. I may have jumped the gun on the problem being solved as I have only received one message to self in inbox and have sent at least ten as a test. I will probably need to speak to earthlink about this.

Thanks again for your input.
