Dear Emerson,

I don't think my e-Buddy is getting my e-mails. She keeps asking me the same questions over and over. What should I do?

Confused Cathy

Dear Cathy,

A few things could be happening here. If your e-Buddy has filters on her e-mail account, your e-mail messages could be automatically deleted, or sent to a "junk mail" folder.

If your e-Buddy is new to e-mail, she may not be used to writing about different things each week. Be patient, and try to ask your e-Buddy direct, simple questions each time you write her. That might make it easier for her to write about something new.

Either way, you should let the e-Buddies staff know what is going on. They will be able to look into the problem further. You can let them know by e-mailing

Signing off,
