that auction item receiving can give people fits! Sometimes they get sort of stuck in the mail sort of. If you go back into the auction for the item or any item (don't bid or buy just go in ), then go back out it triggers the receipt of it. Sometimes I have to refresh the auction and then I see the message pop up. Sometime I go into the messages and click on the auction message tab and there is the message. Can drive one to drink if you let it, but play around with it, it will show up.
Worse part is when you get the message about it again weeks later duplicated and triplicated again and again, wonder what on earth is this. But after playing so long I just add it up to just one of those things that this game does.

Yeah, I just got notices about things I auctioned, despite the fact that it was probably a month ago, that I put them up for auction.

Saphire - I think that you only get credit for items sold when the buyer opens their mail and clicks on the msg. But some msgs do seem to float in cyberspace.

mutt - Some quests are deceptive in that they say to win at auction but really want you to find it in an HOS or MG. So go check out THE LIST OF COLLECTABLES that is somewhere up top and get your item wherever.

Cheers and happy Monday.

Yes Muttmom - the tips about needing to go back into the auction and look for it again are right - that triggers the message into your post box and you can then claim the reward.
However, I would reinforce what BlueX said: if it is the specific quest where you are asked to get the auto pictures, it is misleading when it seems to point you towards the auction. You will not get the credit for getting them there. You have to go to the places where you can win them in the games.
