Clicking send does not send email

    I created a form and believe I directed the "Send" button to issue an email to my email address. The emails are showing in my JotForm inbox, but they don't seem to get sent to my actual email inbox. Is there something I'm doing wrong?

    I'd appreciate your help.

    Hi Brent,

    That is because your email address is IN our bounce list with the following result and reason(s);

    Result: is IN the bounce list  

    Reason(s) : 5.1.0 - Unknown address error 550-'5.1.1  recipient rejected'

    Please take note of the reason, your mail service provider has rejected the emails coming from Jotform. Please check this guide on how to prevent this from happening again:

    How to setup email alerts to prevent "emails not being received" issues

    I have now removed your email address from the said list so it should be working fine now.


    Thank you.

    Hi Welvin,
    Thanks for your help. I followed the directions to set up a new mail
    notification using "" instead of
    "," but the test emails keep going to the latter. Is
    there something I can do to correct that?

    Hi Brent,

    Test Email or Test Email button will only send a notification to your primary email address that is associated with your account. We do it this way to avoid abuse of using such feature.

    Please make an actual submission to your form if you want to check wether the other recipient of the form receives the notification.

    Hi again,
    Thanks for your help. I registered with, so
    it all works great now. One other question. If you go to
    and fill out the form, after hitting send, the "thank you" part is way
    up at the top of where the form started. If a visitor doesn't know
    better, when they hit send, they'll think the screen went blank and will
    be confused. Is there a way I can have my page shoot back to the top of
    the form to see the "thank you?"

    Hello Brent!

    I just sent an test to understand better what is happening. I think you could redirect the Thank You page to the URl of your site.

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

    2. Click on "Thank You" button on toolbar

    3. Select "Custom URL" and click "Next"

    4. Enter URL of  page on your site.
