My udel dot edu account is handled by google.  I am also not getting 
anything at all, not even in spam, since at least 3/31 when I was added 
to https://bugs.python.org/issue26673  I only discovered it in the 
Friday weekly New Issues report.  More emails were missing on Friday. 
The problem continues.  I just added a question to 
https://bugs.python.org/issue19944 and got nothing.

Since at least last summer, Rietveld reviews have consistently gone to 
Junk.  Normal tracker emails sometimes went to Inbox, sometimes to Junk. 
  Since normal emails (but not reviews, unfortunately) are tagged in the 
subject line, I added a rule to Thunderbird to move tracker email to 
Inbox when I open Junk.  This is no longer happening at they do not even 
get to Junk.

I tried changing my tracker email to verizon.net and posted a message on 
on issue where I am the only nosy person.  After half an hour, nothing. 
  I am not surprised as Verizon rarely delivers anything it considers 
junk.  I had this confirmed by a game site that said that its emails are 
deleted unless one contacts Verizon to whitelist their site.  I will see 
if I can again find the page to do that.

I do get checkins and core-mentorship mail.  I have not seen anything on 
core-developers since the discussion of new commits privileges a month ago.
