Did you write them in a word processor (IE MS Word) and then copy directly over to the email box? If so, then what you are getting is all the extra stuff the word processor adds in so that it knows how to do your formatting. You need to copy and paste into a text editor (like Notepad, or my favorite, Notepad++) -- or even better would be to write it in the text editor to begin with.
As to why the emails aren't making it into your mail box, it could be a number of factors like the sending server is busy and just hasn't got to your email yet or, the more likely cause is a typo in the email address. Or if you do have the confirmation email going to you but not the other emails, then those other emails might not be in the right place to do what you are expecting. Like I said.. several possibilities. The easiest to check is the misspellings and, with computers, 9 times out of 10 is the culprit.
