    Hi folks,

    Not receiving the submitted email through to me email address.  

    Test message is generated but also does not come through to my email adress.

    I can see the messages in my forms. 

    I think I have the email notification set up properly as I have checked set up in other forms I have set up with Jotform. 

    Is my email being blocked?  It's not in my junk email box in Safari. 

    Thanks for your help,   Dean Tatro

    I have tested and the email is generated in the Jotform system but is still not coming through to my email address.

    Your mail server rejected the message from us, so that your email was added to the bounced list. However, this is not an issue for now.

    As far as I ca see, your Email Notification is configured to use user's email as a Sender E-mail address. That may lead to some blocks from your mail server due to 'fake' sender email.

    I would like to recommend you to configure your Email Notification to use real sender:

    1. Log into your JotForm account and go to My Forms section.

    2. Select the form and click on "Edit".

    3. Click on "Setup and Embed" tab on the form builder toolbar.

    4. Click on "Email Alerts" and select "Notification".

    5. Click on "Reply-To and Recipient Settings" button (third from the right along the bottom).

    6. Set:

    Sender E-mail:

    Note: You can use user's email as Reply-to Email.

    7. Click "Finish" button.

    Then, re-check your email delivery. If you would like to mark this thread as private or any other assistance, please let us know.
