    It appears that no matter what email address I use, I end up on the bounce list within a matter of hours.  This is very annoying and disruptive.  I've tried different domains, ISP's, etc.,, etc.  Why does this keep happening and how do I resolve the issue permanently.

    I'm afraid this is something beyond our control. To be honest, there's no sure-fire way to resolve email related issues permanently.

    Please note that bounce related issues usually start from the receiving end. When your email server keeps rejecting the emails coming from JotForm after several attempts, your email would end up in our Bounce List. Just like you, we hate emails going into the Bounce List. However, like any other email servers, we need to process bounce messages without exception to protect our email server from being listed in spam databases.

    The least we could do is offer some guidelines on how to lessen the likelihood of your email ending up in our Bounce List.

    You can also try the following in this exact order and only move on to the next step if the first one didn't suffice:

    1. Whitelist our IPs, emails and domains.

    2. Use a different email, preferably, use an email address.

    3. Set up your own SMTP.
