How do you unblock emails?

Anyone know how to unblock emails.

I'm on talktalk and have been getting spam email by the shed load. I've been putting them in spam folder but I think I've put a couple of important contacts in there by mistake. Up shot is I'm still getting the spam but more importantly not recieving emails from the people I need to. Any clues?

TalkTalk's email servers have been playing up badly for at least a week. We have had hundreds queued on our servers for delivery to TT domains and constantly unable to connect. Presumably due to their servers being too busy dealing with floods of spam.

Best advice. Change your email to a proper supplier. Gmail if you want free or Office 365 if you don't mind paying a few quid.

Yes I have been contemplating that, It's just 2 email addresses that are blocked which seems strange though, everyone else can get theirs through.

Anti-spam measures are becoming increasingly rigid - for good reason. Properly set up mail servers now use amongst other measures RBL/SBL lookups, grey listing, reverse DNS lookups, sender address verification, SPF checking, geo-blocking and dynamic IP blocking. The 2 sender addresses could be failing for any one of these measures or others not mentioned or it could just be that TalkTalk's network is still failing in places.
