Would the "Please Confirm Subscription" email message sitting in my Ginbox serve instead? I didn't have to register or provide payment details for that.

Re: Virginmedia blocking email from Shopto.net for ntlworld.com email

Keep hold of it.  When of the Forum Team might ask for it.  However when chasing missing mails, I personally think it's always a good idea to get as much information from the sender as possible.  Certainly them checking their email logs should be able to tell is whether that got a 250 (delivery accepted) SMTP code or something else instead.

Re: Virginmedia blocking email from Shopto.net for ntlworld.com email

My first ShopTo newsletter arrived safe and sound today... it arrived in my ntlworld.com secondary email account inbox and was then auto-forwarded to my Gmail account from where my email client grabbed it.

Based on that and on the unproblematic receipt of the subscription email as I reported in message 2 above, I'd have to say that neither VM nor Gmail are blocking incoming ShopTo.net email messages.

But I'm not the OP, I'm merely a crash-test dummy :-)

Re: Virginmedia blocking email from Shopto.net for ntlworld.com email

Not receiving order updates was irritating so after posting here I changed my login for ShopTo to a non VM controlled address, which is receiving all emails.

Strangely though, I did receive a ShopTo newsletter yesterday via my ntlworld account so something has changed.

Re: Virginmedia blocking email from Shopto.net for ntlworld.com email

Did you try following my advice?

One cause of emails not being received is a compromised password.

Hackers look to monetise their gains, so hacking into an email account and then diverting email notifications from accounts like Shopto are a common tactic.

Today I will mostly be testing the unsubscribe process.
