    Anyone have problems with not receiving emails into their icloud account today? Myself and two friends w/iCloud have had several emails not reach us, but some emails do come through.

    Apple status page appears to show everything online.

    Thanks

    I'm having issues receiving emails being sent from Gmail accounts.

    Yep same here, I confirmed all emails I am missing have been sent from a gmail account. Some senders even receive a message from Apple mail servers saying it has been bounced back.

    I experienced similar problem this weekend, but in my case, emails were delayed.

    They were from different people (both using gmail), and reached my iCloud inbox a day later than usual. Thus I ****ed up two appointments :mad:

    Later today I did a reliability test using various email service providers (gmail, outlook, yahoo, etc.). Out of 9 emails sent, only 7 reached my iCloud inbox. And the missing 2 emails were both sent using one of my gmail accounts, which is quite unusual. :(

    i confirm that also here the email from gmail are not delivered to my iCloud account. I tried with my other yahoo account, and with a small delay arrived on my inbox.
    It seems a problem between google and iCloud, but probably not only with google (I missed also a mail from linkedin, which I suppose does not use google services).

    Unbelievable, I am still not getting emails from any gmail account. Emails even from another iCloud account were delayed! I'm surprised there aren't more people that are seeing this issue, unless there aren't many who use iCloud for email? I might have to switch back to my old Yahoo address

    Same problem here and I'm pissed. Started Friday.

    I called support this morning and there is a "head tech" supposedly working on it. Guy said he'd already had a few calls about it

    iCloud email - Issues Receiving

    Gosh. I thought it was just me.

    For the record, I started having this problem about a week ago. It's not recent.

    Also notice that it's not limited to Gmail senders. There are several newsletters that haven't reached my inbox.

    Finally, it looks like, while some emails arrive though they are hours-delayed (sometimes even days), other messages appear to be completely lost.

    Of course of all of this is completely unacceptable, and it alarms me why so few users have said something about this. It hasn't even reached tech blogs!

    I guess it must be something affecting a small percentage of users, but still, for those users it's pretty damn critical, specially for those suckers like me who still trust iCloud Mail as their main account, even after so many problems since its launch.

    Hopefully you guys can call Apple and demand a solution. In my country there is no official presence so I'm stuck.

    I have my gmail account forwarded to iCloud. I just logged into my Gmail account and I see a lot of notices of mail not delivered. It's been going on for several days.

    This problem was already solved, just in case. It was confirmed by many users in the Apple Support Communities.

    I haven't had any problems neither, at least during the last couple of days.

    Yep a couple of days ago it started working again. I was planning on switching email providers anyways so this just forced me to actually do it. All other iCloud services seemed to be working fine though, so I will continue to use those

    Thanks

    Not that there are many other good options anyway.
