Hi Have, (and love the name )

a while ago I read something about some email providers filtering rather brutally by email headers, and if they so much as "think" it is a not valid email header you will never receive the emails. top of that list was Gmail if I recall correctly. you might want to try usign a different email procvider and change your contact info on the account page, and if it works with the different provider that is most likely what is causing your problem.

Note: Many providers allow you to "auto-forward" your mails to another account (even with a different provider) and as that should rewrite the headers it would allow you to use the new email simply as some sort of "buffer".

Everything you have done there should work just fine.

Have you checked to make sure that your email system isn't filtering them to a spam /junk folder for some reason? If it is mark one of them as 'not spam' and all future emails from the SL address should go to your inbox.
