.Probably the wrong sub forum, but this a relatively simple question about sending emails.

I live in the UK but recently I have been spending some time watching the US TV channel CNN.

I have 3 email addresses.

One at BT (British Telecom) and the two others at gmail and hotmail. My ISP is BT.

I wanted to get in touch with one of the CNN anchors about a comment made by one of his guests.

I went into "CNN contact", found the method of contact. For this I used my BT email address.

No email address was given for CNN, but I was asked to fill,in my name, then my email address. After I simply had to ask my question and click send.

However I was not informed the email was sent and it did not appear in the "sent" boxes at any my email addresses.

Also, of course, no reply from CNN came through.

Anyone know what I am doing wrong when one, as often happens, is not given a normal email address to send the email?






my BT email address.

No email address was given but I was asked to type in my name, then my email address. Then I had simply to as ask my question and click send.

I am completely unclear as to what you're asking.


If you used a web-based "Contact Us" form where you fill in your name, e-mail address, and comment then there will be no trace of having sent an e-mail message because you didn't send an e-mail message - you used a web-form that has a field for e-mail address in case they might want to contact you.   None of that goes through your own e-mail account at the time of sending.
