I have 2 email forwarders set up on my own personal domain. One sends all email messages to my ntlworld.com account with Virgin and the other sends all emails to my gmail account. So - yes - I would expect to get duplicate emails in the two accounts. However.... Between 18:30 at 19:30 today, 7 emails arrived in my gmail account and only 2 arrived in my Virgin account.
I've tried searching all folders but the missing 5 messages aren't anywhere to be seen.
Has anybody got any ideas where to look or what to do next ?
It's not sending emails but receiving them which is the problem and almost certain to be down to Virginmedia's implementation of SPF inspection.
It doesn't happen on any of the big email services such as Google mail or Yahoo. So the answer seems to be abandon using VM/Ntlworld as a service and stick to Gmail. I've tried all sorts of variants in the SPF record in my email forwarders domain without success.
