The thing is..it would be odd to have this problem through hotmail since it works sporadically,  PBS is a safe sender and I sent in a report and PBS isnt blocked..

As an update, I added the PBS addresses to my contacts as instructed and I did get an email today.

I use Gmail, and today I didn't receive my Daily Digest. However, I used yesterday's Digest to log onto the site and see today's Digest. Makes me wonder if Gmail is once again stopping the PBS mail. I did receive a post this morning from PBS telling me a book was received by the requestor. But it was time-stamped last night after 11 pm. The Digest is usually sent in the early morning. I'll see what happens tomorrow.

Today, I received a book request, but, once again, not the digest. Club Communications has the Digest sent for the past several days. I have both PBS addresses in my Gmail Address book, as I did years ago.  Seems funny I'm receiving other alerts and not the Digest. I double checked my Digiest request and it is still active.

I logged on to  Gmail to see if there was someplace there I needed to look. Digest was not in spam on Gmail or on my Thunderbird software. Any ideas?

Yesterday was a fluke. No Digest today. It's in my Club Communications listing, but didn't get i in Gmail.

Hotmail users..back to no emails. We have to figure thisout..it can't be hotmail arbitrarily stopping mail for  a few days then suddenly not..I never had this issue before!

The same thing is happening in Gmail. I'll go several days without a Digest, than one will come through.

I received my wish list and digest again for about 10 days.  Then this morning, nothing.  I've checked everkything in my hotmail and it's not that.  I can also access both wish list and digest from the previous day but hate having to constantly logging into account to check for messages.

I'm on Gmail and I received a Digest on the 26th, but not today---the 27th.   This receiving a Digest once every three or four days, when a new Digest is posted to my account every day doesn't sound like a Gmail problem. I receive all the other PBS e-mail too. Something is eerie with PBS

After going several days without a Digest, I've now received it three days in a row. Problem solved? I hope so. I use Gmail.

I received the Digest four days in a row, and now two days without? Is there a gremlin in the Internet?
