Have you checked your GMail spam folder for her messages? It is my 
understanding that GMail tries pretty hard to not outright delete 
incoming email, so it should be in there somewhere.

I run my own email system and the worst thing it says about Beatrice 
Otter's messages is that it comes from "a commonly abused free-mail 
provider." but that combined with Bayesian analysis and other things 
actually ends up giving her a negative spam score (-2.3) on my system. 
So I don't think GMail would be totally erasing her.

One thing I did when I used GMail is filters. I still have them set up 
and I just went to look.

For the LMB list I use in GMail Settings: Filters and Blocked Addresses:

You could add another one for Beatrice. Her email address is 
beatrice_otter at zoho.com

You can go and read any messages you may have missed in the list 
archives at http://lists.herald.co.uk/pipermail/lois-bujold/
