I've recently gained access to a student society email account, but for some reason, whilst I can send emails, I can't receive them. As the society email account has been going for some years, it was pretty full so I emptied the inbox to see if that helped and no joy. Any ideas, please?
What is the domain (the part after the @) of the email account and what email client program are you using?
P.S. If an email account previously managed/run by somebody else and now by you, ensure that it wasn't setup to forward to the prior individual or someone else. If you simply emptied the inbox, ensure that you also empty the trash (if applicable for that account).
