I have created a custom email address for my domain contact@mydomain.com and tried to send an email from myaddress@gmail.com to contact@mydomain.com but I did not receive anything in my inbox.

Then, I sent an email from contact@mydomain.com to myaddress@gmail.com and it showed up in my Gmail inbox. When I replied to that email, the reply did not appear in the inbox of contact@mydomain.com.

The problem only occurs with Gmail addresses. I could receive the emails for twitter and other services. How can I resolve this issue?

  • What are you using to receive mail? – Paul Nov 5 '16 at 3:50
  • @Paul I am not exactly sure but it is an email client on my hosting account. It goes by the name "Horde". – Neena Vivek Nov 5 '16 at 5:29
  • Have you waited enough to receive bounce messages? (reports via email to sender of the original message about delivery problems) AFAIR sendmail (not gmail) sends "warning" after 4 hours and "final error" after 5 days. – AnFi Nov 5 '16 at 6:48
  • You will need to contact your mail service provider. – Paul Nov 5 '16 at 11:45
