Hello 'elizabeth',
What is the time frame regarding the loss of an email?
Within your email account, you have a time frame; this can be adjusted to suit your needs. This setting may now be only one day, so your emails are deleted after that time (24 hours).
This setting can be easily adjusted: choose which email setting you wish to adjust ('Friends...', 'Sent', 'Favourites' etc.), an icon will appear on the right and you need to click on this icon - a box will appear, which shows the time frame of that particular email account. You can choose 'one day' up to '12 months', or you can choose 'none', which will save an email until you wish to delete the email.
I hope this is of some help.

FOR ELIZABETH:

WHAT IS THE TIME FRAME REGARDING THE LOSS OF AN EMAIL?

WITHIN YOUR EMAIL ACCOUNT, YOU HAVE A TIME FRAME. THIS TIME FRAME CAN BE ADJUSTED TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS/WISHES.

THIS SETTING MAY NOW ONLY BE ONE DAY. THIS MEANS, AN EMAIL WILL BE DELETED AFTER ONE DAY (24 HOURS).

THIS SETTING CAN BE EASILY ADJUSTED.

CHOOSE THE EMAIL SETTING YOU WISH TO ADJUST ('FRIENDS...', 'SENT' ETC.)
AN ICON WILL APPEAR ON THE RIGHT
CLICK ON THIS ICON
A BOX WILL APPEAR WHICH SHOWS THE TIME FRAME
YOU CAN CHOOSE ONE DAY OR 12 MONTHS
THERE IS ALSO THE OPTION OF CHOOSING 'NONE' WHICH WILL ALLOW EMAILS TO BE PERMANENTLY SAVED.

THERE ARE ALSO THE POSSIBILITIES: STORAGE CAPACITY, DATED SYSTEM, NON-COMPATIBILITY...

I AM SORRY TO SAY, THERE ARE MANY POSSIBILITIES.

Posted by: ianp. (431)  Report abuse
HERE ARE A FEW MORE POSSIBILITIES: 'POP', 'IMAP', 'TRIGGERED SPAM MAIL FILTER', 'GRAY LISTING', 'THIRD-PARTY HOSTING'

ARE YOU USING 'HOTMAIL'?

Posted by: ianp. (431)  Report abuse
Some mail providers implement a process which delays suspicious emails.
The emails, as long as they are considered to be legitimate, are eventually delivered.
These emails may seem like they have gone missing.

Ian Elizabeth is not computer savvy at all. Where she lives there is always problems with the internet and she does not have any relatives close by to sort her computer out

Posted by: ianp. (431)  Report abuse
PeterP,
Firstly, thank you for the information and being so courteous. I had the feeling Elizabeth was not computer savvy, but I did not know about her distance with regard to her relatives.
Of course, it is so difficult to simplify the information and it is extremely difficult to fully assess the initial problem.
Sadly, I am not in the immediate vicinity.

WHICH WEB BROWSER DO YOU USE ELIZABETH?

WHAT IS THE LAST BIT OF YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS, THE BIT AFTER THE @ SYMBOL?

Posted by: arrow (819) Report abuse
ELIZABETH I READ IN THE OTHER TOPIC THAT YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS ENDS IN @DSL.PIPEX.COM. I DID A BIT OF READING AND IT LOOKS LIKE THAT IS AN OLD EMAIL SERVICE THAT WAS TAKEN OVER BY TALKTALK AROUND 2011. LOOKING AT TALKTALK'S HELP FORUM OTHER PEOPLE HAVE HAD PROBLEMS WITH IT BUT I COULDN'T FIND ANYONE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM AS YOU. I SUGGEST TRYING A DIFFERENT WEB BROWSER AND IF THAT DOESN'T WORK I'D CONTACT TALKTALK AND ASK FOR THEIR HELP.

LINKS TO ALTERNATIVE WEB BROWSERS TO DOWNLOAD AND INSTALL IF YOU HAVEN'T GOT ANY ON YOUR COMPUTER ALREADY.
GOOGLE CHROME
FIREFOX

TALKTALK'S PHONE NUMBER. 0345 172 0088. IT'S FREE FROM A TALKTALK LANDLINE.

I REMEMBER YOU'D HAD COMPUTER PROBLEMS ELIZABETH BUT DIDN'T THINK IT WAS FOR THAT LONG. 9 WEEKS WITH NO INTERNET

SORRY I CAN'T HELP WITH YOUR PIPEX EMAIL PROBLEM. I THINK THE PROBLEM IS WITH TALKTALK.

AS YOU DON'T WANT TO MESS ABOUT INSTALLING ANYTHING NEW THE ONLY OTHER THING I CAN THINK OF IS FOR YOU TO SET UP A SECOND EMAIL ADDRESS WITH GMAIL. YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE ANY PROBLEMS WITH GMAIL. ABOUT GMAIL.

On May 14th, I had a parcel delivered.

Two days ago, on 22nd June, I received email telling me that it would be delivered on 14-15 May!

Amazon frequently email me message saying, "We will deliver your parcel today". Invariably, the parcel arrives before the email!

And, I did once receive an email, (OK, so it came from Tunisia,) which took over a year to get to me!
