    Sending app to a friend (from the itunes store)

    Hi, When I first got my iPad 1, If I saw an app I liked in the iTunes store, but was not quite ready to purchase it, I would click on "tell a friend" in the upper right corner of the app. Then I would send it to myself. I made a folder in my email and would add these apps as I got them for future perusal.
    Now when I do this, it allows me to put in my email address, but I never receive them! This has been happening for a few weeks now. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! 

    Just to be clear, you're saying that you used to be able to email these app suggestions to yourself - and you received those emails OK, but that does not happen any longer?

    I'm assuming you're receiving normal emails at this same account without any problems?

    Yes, I can receive emails from everyone, even iTunes. I'm just not getting the "send to a friend" ones from iTunes anymore and I don't know why. I have a Yahoo email address.

    A long shot, but have you accessed it on the web client and made sure they aren't getting dumped into the junk mail?

    Well, that's maybe something I should look into. Thank you. If that isn't it, I'll be back! 

    Question Nope, Nada Nyet

    To Tim Spracklen and twerppoet: Watching my spam filter did'nt work either! Can you gentlemen think of anything else? I also have another question if we ever rectify this one! Please help! I'm a damsel in distress.

    Go to your Apple ID Account information and double check the primary and secondary email addresses. This can be different than the email address you use to log into the account. (Do not mess with the actual Apple ID name)

    You can follow this link and choose Manage Account information.

    Apple - Support - Apple ID

    Even if the email addresses appear to be ok, you can edit them again, and force them to verify. They should verify by sending you an email that you have to click a reply link on.

    You know, after waking up for about 3 more minutes, my last suggestion doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I'll leave it incase you've already read it, but disregard.

    No idea, unless your email provider has has Apple blacklisted for some obscure reason.

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    The 'tell a friend' emails are sent from your main email account, since they never arrive, is there any chance they haven't been sent? Can you send other emails from your Yahoo email account?

    Anyway, if we can't solve this problem, then there is always the option of using a work-around. For example using AppShopper, it let's you search the AppStore and when you see an app, you like, you can add it to a wish list. You can always go back to the wish list at a later time, to see which apps you where interested in.

    App Shopper

    I guess I could try this. I've tried Everything else. I don't know why it worked a few months ago and now it's not. Will be back to let you folks know. Thanks!
