    That is perfectly normal.

    Please see this tutorial: https://www.jotform.com/help/25-Setting-Up-Email-Notifications where the following notice is mentioned:


    If you are trying to test the email alerts using "Test Email" button, please note that this will always send the email notification to email address in your account profile. You have to make an actual submission in your form to test the recipient email address you are setting up in the form. Please refer to this guide for more information: How-to-properly-Change-and-Test-a-New-Email-Recipient-Address.


    If you have more questions or need further assistance, please let us know.
