Email reply not always working

@Joel I was just using gmail on my phone and according to gmail the reply went to the correct address…

Ummmmm, could have been picked up by the spam filter. Can you get a timestamp for when the email was sent, I’ll check the logs to see what happened.

Right, it looks like the mail server had a moment and locked up. This stopped discourse picking up any of the emails, (which have now arrived).

I’m gonna see if there is something that can be done to prevent this in the future.
