I do not receive emails
If you discover that someone has sent you an email but you have not received it, there may be several reasons for this problem:
Time - Email may seem like an instantaneous service, but it isn't. The amount of time it takes for you to receive an email can depend on a number of factors. For example, if the network has to handle a lot of spam, it can take several hours for your email to arrive.
Date - Check to see how your Inbox is organized. To see the most recent emails, you need to have your mail sorted according to Date. Click on Filter, Sort and then choose your preference for how your inbox will be sorted and filtered.
Spam filter - Sometimes your incoming mail may accidently be sent to your Junk folder. Check there, and if you find it, mark the source as trusted.
Quota - There are limits on how much you can save in Webmail. To see if you have reached your limit, log in and click on the cogwheel in the top right corner, search for Storage. Here you will be able to see how much storage you have available, and how much you have used. Students and employees have a quota of 100 GB.
