    I changed the email for the forms to be emailed to a new email address, but when I try to test it it is going to my email.  Shouldn't the test be going to the "recipient" email I entered?

    Hello,

    As far as I understand, you click "Test Email" feature in the email settings. The "Test Email" option sends the test email to the account email, not to a recipient. This is the normal case of working logic of the "Test Email" feature.

    If you want to test your recipient email address, you should open your form in a web browser and fulfill it.

    Thanks, but I put set the notification email to go to exhibitor.vegexpo@gmail.com and that is where I thought the test email would go.

    OK -- I filled out the form and it went to the right email box.  Only thing was I had to actually pay for something to sent it through, but I refunded myself.  All is good.

    The test email will always be sent to the default address associated with your account.  To test further emails requires sending a submission through the form, as you have seen.  Most of our payment processors have a sandbox or test mode that can be used for such cases should you need to test again.
