My Verizon FIOS account recently changed the port numbers and required SSL for email, and I finally got my WLM client properly configured so that I can receive email on that address which is firstname.lastname@example.org. But now it seems I can no longer receive emails forwarded to that address through my Dreamhost account. I can’t find any setings anywhere that need that updated information, and I don’t see any reason why it would need it.
I have Forward Only Email, with email@example.com forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org. And I have other domain email set up to forward, for instance, email@example.com sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. All of these worked fine until 4PM yesterday when Verizon made their changes. But they no longer work, and I have many emails that are probably (hopefully) on the Dreamhost server but not being forwarded.
Any ideas? TIA!
BTW, I sent a test email to email@example.com, and it is in my mailbox which I can view with squirrelmail (Dreamhost Webmail). I do not have webmail for the other addresses, and I cannot, because they are (supposedly) forwarded to another host.
 Now it seems that new emails are being forwarded properly. But I am missing emails over the last 24 hours while my client was not properly configure. Any idea where those emails might be? Lost in cyberspace? Bit bucket?
[edit2] OK, my missing emails have now arrived. The dates/times are all bunched together, which I guess makes sense, since those were the times they were actually delivered to my WLM client. The headers show the sequence of events:

Interesting to follow the email trail, like my dog follows the peemail trail. www.muttleydog.com
