Why do I sometimes not receive mail from distribution lists when others on the same distribution lists do?

If you don't receive mail from email distribution lists when others 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.

Additionally, if you use a mail filter on your account (e.g., MH slocal or procmail) and you haven't specified it in your .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 program.

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, what subscription options are available, and how can I set them? and Suspend delivery for an IU List mailing list.
