Agreed sometimes ISP's (internet service provider ie the guy you pay the big bucks to, whether cable guy or cell phone data) block URL's they think are locations for spammers and it can block legitmate mail (long story, but basically they will block pools of ip addresses, a so called subnet address, if they have identified a lot of activity coming from that sub net).  If you are not seeing the mails, they aren't in your spam folder, then contact your ISP and ask them to look into it, give them the email address where the MTH stuff comes from and ask them to make sure it isn't part of a blacklist (or the IP address that is where that mail comes from).

I signed up for the daily MTH emails with 2 seperate email accounts from 2 different ISPs (the second was used after not getting anything with the first account). I received a confirmation email from MTH concerning the joining of the mail list,  but have yet to receive a single daily update email through either ISP. I regularly received the daily MTH emails with one of these accounts before they stopped about a month or 2 ago.  Nothing is in either account's junk/spam folder.  It's possible both Gmail and comcast are blocking the communications before they come to me like you mention, but it looks more likely that the problem is on the MTH side since it is the same for 2 separate ISPs and others are experiencing this.

Well, either someone from MTH reads this forum or we have an amazing coincidence - at 1:03 pm today I just received my first MTH daily announcement after over 2 months.  Strange but glad I'm back in their good favors and now once again worthy of email announcements.

About the 4-Bay Hopper

Unlike equipment that carried a variety of loads, like boxcars, flatcars, and gondolas, this four-bay hopper was designed specifically for one cargo: bituminous coal. Its capacity matched the volume of coal that a pair of typical 70-ton freight trucks could carry. And its slope sheets — the angled floors at either end of the car — were set at precisely the angle at which coal would flow easily from its bottom doors. (Covered grain hoppers, for example, require much steeper slope sheets.)

The large four-bay car was ideal for the delivery of bituminous coal to large industrial customers and railroads. In contrast, cleaner-burning anthracite coal shipped more commonly to small, local coal dealers who served the home heating market, often traveled in smaller two-bay hoppers.

High-quality, traditionally sized RailKing Freight Cars provide detailed bodies and colorful paint schemes for the O Gauge railroader. MTH makes an enormous variety of RailKing Freight Cars, including many different car types and roadnames. No matter what era or part of the country you are modeling, RailKing is sure to have something for you.

Glad some it started working for some now. Since MTH is still in transition, maybe it's taking them a while to add new folks to the mailing list.

FWIW, I also have Gmail (Google is my ISP), and that's the one that was blocking my MTH emails a few years ago. As I recall, I finally found them through my account online. They never made it to my PC.  It also seems like there may have been a setting or two I changed at the time, but that's too long ago for my old memory?  Anyway, hasn't happened again since.
