Sorry to hear you're having trouble! Here are a few things to check, to start:

Check spam & promotions folders
Make sure emails aren't accidentally ending up in the Spam or Promotions folders of your inbox. If they are, click on "Mark as not spam" and/or "Move to inbox".

Check with your mail provider
If you have a corporate or government email account, reach out to your IT department and ask them to allow emails to be received from our address.

If you've done all this and you're still having trouble, let me know.
