Might turn up later, but its unlikely. Emails do get lost sometimes enroute.

Check your spam/junk mail inbox


Some providers break protocols and standards and silently drop emails without notification - even after confirming to the sending server theyve been delivered. Very naughty - BT Yahoo used to be notorious at this for example.

Google recently changed its authentication requiring a minimum 2048 signature key on dkim and this has caused some issues etc.

Add that to permanent or temporary server, router or other problems and its not uncommon for mails to get lost or delayed. Properly configured servers IF they've been told its failed to deliver should queue and auto retry at progressively lengthening time spans. However, not all servers are properly configured and if the remote end lied about it being delivered successfully they wont retry at all.

Mails from mailing lists can often get filtered or scored high in potential spam by various site checkers due to the bulk nature, indirect addressing and so on so they're more prone to all of the above.

In short, do NOT rely on email for essential communications where you absolutely have to guarantee it's arrived unless you have other procedures in place to confirm it no matter who its to or from. The protocol simply isnt secure OR reliable enough.
