    Auto-Responder not sending to recipient.

    Asked by bailedi on September 22, 2012 at 11:57 PM


    I've created forms before with a well working Auto-Responder.  But my recent one does send the notification to the subscriber. Not sure why.

    Also, I don't quite understand Jotform's Settings scheme/fields in Auto-Responder:

    - "Sender Name" - Do I just put my (or my company) name here?  I assume this is what the recipient sees as the sender's name correct?

    - "Sender Email" - I cannot seem to change this one.  It seems to stick to the email address of my Jotform account.  Can't change it.  Can I edit it or not?  What should be put here?

    - "Recipient Email" - This one is weird.  I tried different options - doesn't send.  It seems logical to have "no-reply@jotform.com".  If I select "Enter your email add..." nothing happens!  I cannot change it.

    If anyone can clarify about these fields in the auto-reponder that would be appreciated.

    My form is at: http://www.paradiseproperties.com.cn/Newsletter.html
