Is anyone having trouble with notification emails? - mine stop like 4 hours agoAsked by zeajorge on March 16, 2017 at 05:09 PM
All was OK until around 1:45 PM EST. Suddenly all the notification emails stopped.
I can see new submissions when I log into my jotform account but I haven't received emails (as aways) with all submissions after 1:45 PM SET (last notification email received).
This is affecting all my forms.
My email client (gmail) is set up with jotform.com as trusted email sender - I also checked junk and spam folders just in case ... nothing there.
I am receiving emails at that account OK from all other senders.
I even went to my submissions online a tried forwarding one of them to me manually .... never got it.
We are experiencing a problem with our email servers. Email notifications and autoresponders are queued and they should arrive in your inbox delayed. However, our technical team has already activated the backup mail server so please expect the notifications to be delivered anytime soon.
We suggest to check the submissions in your form submissions page for now http://www.jotform.com/help/269-How-to-view-Submissions
Thanks and apologies for the inconveniences caused.
Thanks for your response ... it is OK.
I did a bunch of tests and discovered that the only delays are for notifications sent to gmail accounts ... all other test with non-gmail accounts worked well.
Quick question: do you think if I set up my email notifications through my smtp server ... will this correct the issue in the future?
Yes, using SMTP is a good alternative since emails would rely on your mail server and not from JotForm.
This means that your mail server will be used to send the emails instead of our sending server.
You can perform some tests by submitting your form after you configured your SMTP, if you prefer.
