Emailing China

Recommended Posts

roddy

I find a large percentage of emails that I write to .cn email addresses come back. I've also been told some email accounts in China don't receive mail sent from servers located outside China.

Is there any truth in this, or am I just typing the email addresses wrong?

I get the same thing a lot of the time. I never knew if the addresses were just bad or what.

I would like to tell a story happened to me...

We had here in Sao Paulo one visitor teacherr from Shanghai that spend 2 years here.

After he went back "home" one month later I wrote him a friendly email and had no answer.

A friend that study in China was going back and asked to meet him and have lunch together.

She wrote from my home, from the same PC.

He answered her, but not me.

He was really close to me helping me all the time (with chinese language questions of course...).

I think that they also select who to answer.

I will not go further in my thinking....

Easy to understand?

I don't know whether it is still the truth or not but some years ago it was the fact that some email providers couldn't receive emails from abroad. But I think some big name email providers such as sohu and sina can... not sure though

his email address is a hot mail.

Sometimes I think the center of this subject can be explained by the meaning of 中国 ( In The Middle of Itself).

I think China still does not need (?) the world being the navel of itself.

When the person lives in a foreign country is still an outside place and the line in between is very very loose yet...

Am I wrong?

I think is not clear enough..

Sometimes I think the no answer is not the provider problem and yes the person itself...

I definitely couldn't sent e-mails to sohu adresses about a year ago- they just disappeared into the void, without even any error messages. In the end I told my friends to get yahoo.co.uk adresses, which work fine. :)
