Well, I did email again and asked if the information was received and if they needed any additional information. I also used it as an opportunity to update them concerning my partner's upcoming transplant surgery, which was a good excuse for the email. Believe it or not, I got a response back early this morning...and I sent the new email last night! They said:

"Thank you for your recent email.

Owing to the large volume of emails received, we do not generally confirm receipt of documentation.

On this occasion I can confirm that your email including attachments was received on 23 November 2016.

In the future, if you need confirmation that your documentation has been received, you should use the Request a Delivery Receipt option in Outlook or your preferred email management system.

Should any further information be required, you will be contacted directly.
"

So, I'm now breathing easier. Unfortunately, I have gmail and it does not have a way to get a "read receipt" when I send emails. Looking into setting it up through my Outlook mail or something. I prefer the peace of mind having proof that they've received requested information. Regardless, if you don't hear back from them, don't panic. But definitely set up "read receipts" in your email, as they directed.

You may need to send a few separate emails, to meet the 5MB limit on each email. Or do you mean 5MB per file? Regardless, give the compressor a try and see how small you can get your files down to. Good luck!
Hi there thanks for your response!
I think they mean an email with a maximum size of 5MB.So we collated all documents and we ended up having to send them 10 emails in total, ensuring each of them is less than 5MB. I guess 10 emails are ok.... right, what do you think, it is still too many?
We thought we would have to send more than that.

Thank you for sharing your experience! I take your advise and when we send the emails with additional evidence in a few days we will make sure to add "read receipt" option. I guess though, this is up to them if they want to send back the sender with the receipt. But having this is better than nothing and having to worry for sure.

We will of course add a sentence asking them to acknowledge the receipt of each email though,... I don't see much luck with that one.

Actually, when you set read receipt on each email you send, as soon as the email is read, you automatically get an email saying that it was read or opened. Don't leave it to DIBP to send you a receipt email, as from what I received, they normally don't. I was lucky that whoever received my email was nice enough to take the time to reply. With them being so busy, they usually don't.

Thanks for the heads up! Will definitely set the "read receipt" in every email we will send now with evidence. The emails have been composed and ready to go. I am just going to do the final check of everything before sending them, it ended up 11 emails!

By the way do you happen to know about the evidence of communication during separation I have asked in this thread separately? People have advised me to send them all, which we will be doing, but I am just curious to know how much the office cares for its content, not the quantity of msgs. We don't really talk about marriage and buying houses on a daily bases (would anyone!?). Compared to someone else's evidence for this particular requirement, ours seems to be a little too plane. Not sure if what I am describing is making any sense?

And sad as we may have to wait that long base on the others who really waited so long to get their visa granted. Tomorrow is my 6th month and i am not sure how many more months to wait, hehe... just have to be patient i guess!

Anyway enjoy and good luck for the 801 stage! I am happy for you!
Hi there,
I applied in April 2016 as well. we are in the same boat

Honestly, I wouldn't know. However, I would follow what Ampk did and submit your messages like he did. You are entitled to your privacy and it's not so much the content of your messages than it is that you were in constant contact. If we had needed to do all of that, I would have done it the way Ampk did. Perfectly shows continuous contact without invading privacy. It's really up to you to send them all, or just send parts and offer the entire "available upon request" if that makes sense. Best of luck to you! Can't wait to hear those approvals roll in.

Thank you so much for the advise!
We didn't have much compared to others, (like 90 pages in total for three months worth separation) and not much to hide really so we decided to send them as a whole. All required additional evidence were emailed now. Now its the waiting game again....... I wonder how long it might be, but the next time we hear from them could be the decision of their assessment. We hope it is and it comes soon,......

Okay, a bit confused here.....A couple weeks ago, I received an email from immigration, asking for a statement from my partner that we had missed. We submitted it about a week ago - and made sure to click on the button that says "new information submitted" on our immi account, I also responded to the email they sent requesting the info, with an email stating we added the info to my immi account. I am currently 15 months into waiting for my onshore 820, from a low risk country. When I log into the account now (and for the past several days), it says approved next to my husbands name (on the left side of the screen) but it still (and always has since we submitted...says "submitted' for his application....mine has always said "received" for the past 15 months). Surely they would not have approved his sponsorship and not my visa? His sponsorship was what was missing an item. I wonder how much longer till we get an answer - I was hoping before xmas would be so nice!!!
