Sent out several requests, no contact from anyone- Glitch

hello fellow travelers=
I just rec'd an "angry" email from a fellow who claimed to have responded twice extending me a place to stay.
He has retracted b/c I never responded.
I sent out maybe a total of 15 or more requests a couple days apart in early june. I did not get one single response. thus, I cannot respond b/c I have nothing that indicates an offer, no contact from anyone.
Now, I know it's not me personally.

There is no way to track whom I've sent out requests to. No replies are coming to me.
What happened? How can this be rectified?
I cannot find anywhere any "settings" to be sure things are set up in a way that allows me to receive contact from potential hosts.
I'm very unhappy about this, as it's left me w/ no housing options, no way to connect to other folks via WarmShowers, and some people out there assume I'm a jerk for not responding.
I do respond to everyone who contacts me, IF I RECEIVE IT!
Thanks for any help.

No Contact

Could be as simple as an over zealous Spam filter? This culd be on your email provider (eg. gmail), or on your email Client (e.g Outlook). If you use a corporate/business email address they may also filter this without your knowledge?
