CommonApp recommendation problems?

My teacher says he hasn't received the invitation, but I sent it a week ago. Is there something I'm missing?

Also, on a completely different note, how bad is it if my recommendations aren't from teachers related to my intended major?

    I don't know about glitches in the CA. Try the help section.

    But the recommenders don't need to have anything to do with your major. It is more to see what kind of student you are. It is common for students to change majors, so that isn't of huge import.

    Thank you so much. That is a huge relief, since I've already requested/set up recommendations.
