Your email account might be configured such that your outgoing messages are sent from an email address slightly different from the one at which you receive messages.

If you did not receive the message, check to make sure the email address you sent it to was correct. Also check that the email address you sent the message from is registered to your profile. You can do this by visiting your profile, and clicking Change Email Settings.
