How to make sure I receive all emails?

Hi folks

I have a Yahoo email account and it seems that I am not receiving some of the emails sent by my friends/colleagues etc.

Can you be kind enough to advice what I need to do in order to make sure I receive all emails?

Thanks in advance for your response.

One of the problems with e-mail is that you can never be sure its arrived. The only thing you can do is ask your friends to set up their systems to ask for read receipts - that way your system will send them a message as soon as you open their e-mail.

However, a more frequent problem is that your email server has considered your emails as spam and blocked it. You should see a folder called 'Spam' and you may find you missing emails there.

I use Windows Mail and there is an option to request a read receipt for all sent messages.

I'm not sure about other email clients though.
