No myLot Notifications? Check Your BULK Mail

United States
July 17, 2007 7:17am CST
This morning when I opened my emails I noticed that the email notifications from myLot were only a couple.. Normally I delete my bulk mail without checking it but today I opened it instead of deleting and I found 47 notifications from myLot from Monday. As I have already deleted Sundays so I dont know if there were some notifications that I deleted. So my apologies to my friends who I have not responded too. My question is...Is this glitch from Yahoo or myLot? Does anyone know?

I saw someone talking about this Sunday, I think. I have Yahoo as well, but none of mine that I am aware of went to my bulk mail, but I did notice yesterday I was finding posts under new discussion three hours of them showing up in my in box. So I do think Yahoo is having some sort of glitches here lately. I will keep my eye on my bulk to be on the safe side.

lol No honey I am not laughing at your post - just the irony ! I started 2 posts on Sunday, one about missing notifications, the other that I had found LOTS of notifications in my spam folder going all the way back to Thursday. You obviously didn't get these as they went to your bulk folder and got deleted! I thought it was maybe Yahoo too but people using other email providers also experienced the same problem so I am not sure what is happening whiteheather! I marked everyone of the notifications as not spam and moved therm to my inbox and so far have not had a repeat but I am still checking. Oh and before I forget someone has also found notifications in the trash file! xxx

I didn't mean that at all whiteheather - duplicate or similar discussions really don't worry me at all - as you said yourself it is inevitable! I just thought it was funny the way you hadn't seen the notification cos it had gone into your bulk folder when that was what the post had been about! Does that makes sense or is it as garbled as it seems to me? Sorry having an emotional day for some reason! xx

I have no ideal.I use hotmail an verizon.But i have notice mylot sending me notification on discussion that had started a week before i got the email..So mylot is slow of sending notification.I would say it is yahoo not mylot since it went to your junk folder.But you could email mylot an see what they say.

I don't really know where the glitch is, but I check my bulk mail everyday anyways just because I know there can be glitches like this. I have found many mylot notifications in the bulk mail, I am guessing that it happens when you get a mail surge and they don't sort right, it used to be just specific notifications now it can be any of them.

Good Idea! Thanks I will try that. So far adding myLot to my address book also seems to be working.

I found an email from a regular friend in my bulk mail today and one a couple of days ago. That was a total of two and neither are from mylot. I use Hotmail so that suggests it's their hiccup. It doesn't make sense though. I can't believe the number of friends that don't seem to be posting any longer. I miss them. I'm glad to see you're still around. :)

Yes I'm still here although not so much. I very seldom post discussion as you never know if they are going to be deleted or if your responses have broken some unknown, or perceived, guideline.

I also did that and it worked. Sorry about the similar post but with so many users it can happen. I did search first. Guess that does't always work either.

Just when I thought I was experiencing this alone, until now the problem still isn't fixed. I am still getting myLot nitifications in my bulk mail.

When I added myLot to my address book it stopped. Seems to have been a yahoo glitch.

Hello whiteheather39, I just posted the same discussion a few minutes ago. I realized this about a few days ago. Very seldom for me to check my Bulk folder and I normally delete them all. But I was lucky that I checked it last few days and found that all my notifications from My Lot were there. Until today, I don't really know why this thing happened.

I open my email from mylot this morning and had close to 70 emails and most of them were old and had been deleted. I believe we have the begining of a government conspiracy to control our minds and bowel movments.

It would be yahoo, not my lot. I use outlook express for my main email address, so there is no bulk folder. My Lot notificatiuons shouldn't be going anywhere else. There should be a way of indicating which emails you do not want to go to your bulk folder with yahoo. I still get notifications, but many of my lot friends are disappearing!

This came up a day or so ago with another poster, but she didn't say who her e-mail was with, but the same problem. I had told her that I had heard Yahoo is filtering like crazy. I have my spam filter turned off with my Yahoo e-mail, plus I don't use it for myLot. See if that helps, or I know you can have a couple of different boxes with Yahoo, open a new one just for myLot, whitelist it, and see if that helps.

Hi Heather, I wash my mail clean with MailWasher (gosh sounds like a 1950's advert), then I use Incredimail as my e-mail programme, I set up filters in it so e-mail from MyLot filters to a specific folder. I can also check back in MailWasher for a number of days to see what I have deleted (and can bring back deleted Mail from it although I don't know how long the deleted mail can be retrieved from). I've checked the properties of the e-mails I've received from MyLot and they look the same as some I got a month ago.
