COST? This is a very vague question. That all depends on the type and severity of the email. If you are unable to receive emails for a long time, something serious is happening and you need to contact your Internet Provider or the e-mail service you are using.
There are several things which could be affecting your email:
There's a problem with your email account
If you're not using it already try accessing your email online and send yourself some test messages. If these all work the issue may be with your email software or device.
An issue with your email software or device
If you can log into your account, but can't send or receive emails, your email server settings may have been changed, so you'll need to check these. See our step-by-step guides on the set-up process, which includes incoming & outgoing server settings.
A large email is being sent
Large email attachments can cause your mailbox to lock, but it will unlock itself within 20 minutes. If the problem keeps happening, try deleting any emails over 3MB.
Your email account is full
Log in to your online email access. Then try deleting any emails you don't need - particularly those with large attachments.
If you use a mail client (eg Outlook) and find that the mailbox on the server fills up, the client can be set to stop a copy of emails being left on the server, or reducing the amount of time they are stored. To do this in Outlook 2007 or 2010:
In the Tools menu (or File tab in 2010), click Account Settings.
Under Name, select the POP3 e-mail account that you want to change, and then click Change.
Click More Settings.
Click the Advanced tab, and then under Delivery, remove the tick from the Leave a copy of messages on the server check box.
Are you able to send emails but not receive?
If you can send email but cannot receive email, there are several likely causes to investigate. These include email quota issues, your DNS settings and your email client settings. If your cPanel has exceeded its disk quota, this can also prevent you from receiving email.
If your incoming email used to work and suddenly stopped working, the issue is probably one of the following:
First of all, think about what you have received. I know of no state-sponsored lottery that contacts winners to inform them they have won. The winners must come forward and claim their winnings or, after a set period of time, the winnings revert to the state. Thus, there is no incentive for the state to contact you. Secondly, there is no way for the state to know who bought a particular lottery ticket as identification is not requested nor required at the time of purchase. This is strictly a scam, trying to get some of your money by playing to your greed.
First the entities that emails are sent to have made changes to contact detail either computer structures, internet, or email addresses. Usually when entities loose the devices that makes telecommunctions achievble, the internet worked plans still remains. For example, a computer internet subscriber being disconnected from networking can send emails from another computer with an email address though sending email in replay may least reach lively entity. Also, attempt to ascertain that the contact list of email addresses has been keyed properly. For example,, any misaliged emails in the friends or associates contact list can cause least delivery. Also, attempt to replay to the received emails to ascertian if an alernative arrangment is required. for example, the computer server providing networking may require to receive interprete and transmit in both ways. A compromise in the sending computer server may least distribute an outward movemebt.
Yahoo is still having some problems at the moment. Suggested cures

Chance are no and the reason you can send to someone else is because there account is fine. Can you send an email to yourself or another email that you may have?
