We create and manage forms for multiple clients. One of the forms we have is not being received by our client when submitted. The form in question is: "Hans Fahden Wine Order"
We checked the email address "firstname.lastname@example.org" and it works in all other instances.
We even tried to republish the form using the generated code on the clients' web site.
Any thoughts on how this can be remedied quickly? The form was used recently in a Holiday promotion and the submissions failed on ate least three occasions.

As I have checked, your recipient email address email@example.com was in our bounce list as you can see the screenshot below:
That was the reason the email address firstname.lastname@example.org was not able to receive submissions. I have removed it from our bounce list. So that, it is able to receive emails normally now.
Moreover, you can check if any email is in our bounce list or not as you can see at the following document link: https://www.jotform.com/help/262-How-to-Remove-Your-Email-Address-from-Bounce-List

This is a bit alarming though, since we had no knowledge of the email
address being put in a "bounce" status. This could have cost our client
potentially thousands of dollars in lost sales, not to mention the
immeasurable loss of potential clients. An alert should have been sent to
us when email address was bounced. This could have prevented a lot of
Moving forward, it will be difficult to convince our clients to upgrade
their plans with Jot Form.
We will, however, consult the related guide link you sent and hope we can
rely on Jot From in the future.

We do set an account notice when an address has been placed on the bounce list. It will look like this:
It will be shown at the "My Forms" page for your account. Due to this notification being related to rejected emails, sending further emails to an address that is already rejecting them does not do much good.
There is not much we can do about rejected emails especially when the account in unavailable for a period of time. Rejected emails raise our spam score and lead to further rejected emails.
If you would like to use your own address for sending of notifications, you can do so via SMTP:
