Why do I sometimes not receive mail from distribution lists when other users on the same distribution lists do?
If you don't receive mail from distribution lists when other users do, verify with the list owner that your name is included correctly on the distribution list. Also, check that you have correctly specified mail forwarding on your accounts; see At IU, how do I forward my email?
Additionally, if you use a mail filter on your account (e.g.,
MH slocal or procmail) and you haven't specified it in
.forward file, you may not receive mail from a
distribution list. Because mail can be lost during the filtering
process, UITS does not recommend using a filter
If you are subscribed to an IU List mailing list and you are not receiving postings, check your settings in the IU List web interface. See On IU List, how do I manage my list subscriptions?
