    Hi there,

    I have added a "Contact Us" JotForm to our web site. I have done several tests and while I get the submission notification in my account, they are not going through to the email address I designated. How do I fix this? I don't wish to include the URL because our site is still in staging but would prefer someone contact me privately.

    Hi lbrendel,

    I checked the form you have created and tested the email set.
    According to the mail logs the email was sent and accepted by your mail provider.

    Have you checked the spam/bulk folders in your account. There are times that
    email coming fro JotForm are marked as spam by mail providers.

    If you need the mail logs let me know.

    Regards.

    hi, is there any way that these emails are sent via my server and not via your service provider ?

    @jorgeantunes,

    As of now, there is no easy way to make that possible. I can see a workaround but that that would mean having custom software installed on your mail server, parsing information from emails coming from our server and then it's up to your mail server to forward those emails to the appropriate recipients.

    I imagine it's a hell lot of work, so I think it's better to stick with what we have. You could just display a custom message on the Thank You page to remind your users to check their spam/bulk/junk mail folders.

    @GTT,

    I can't seem to find your email address in our member database. Could you please tell us your username and also where your form is embedded right now?

    We'll await your response and our apologies for the inconvenience.

    Hi jeffreyk8,

    I checked the form embeded in the url provided. I noticed that you have products
    for sale and is using Paypal payment tool.

    The notification email from JotForm will be sent once the payment is
    processed and completed by Paypal. If the payment is not yet
    completed it will be considered as  a pending submission and no notification
    email is sent.

    You can find out the pending submission in JotForm:
    1. Open the form in JotForm
    2. In the My Forms section select the form
    3. Choose "Submission"
    4. Select Pending Submission, from here you will see the transactions
       which are pending this means that the Payment was not yet completed.

    Regards,
    Mliz

    I will submit a ticket for this matter.

    Can you tell us when was the last payment that you have received?  This will help our development team in their investigation to figure out the cause of your problem.

    Thank you for your patience.

    @jeffereyk8 When your payments are completed, paypal should send us a notification in the background but apperently it didn't. That's why your submissions remained pending. Please complete them manually while I'm searching the cause of this problem.

    In the mean time please make sure you have "Instant Payment Notifications" enabled on your paypal account.

    Hi jeffreyk8,

    The email address has to be the primary email address in your Paypal account. If you have registered multiple email addresses in your Paypal account, make sure you use the primary email address. Otherwise, IPN will not work.

    You may find this Paypal IPN Setup Checklist helpful.

    @jeffreyk8,

    According to the checklist given by allan:

    Email Address: This has to be the primary email address at your PayPal account,
    or IPN will not work!

    I assume that primary means the email address that you use for logging in to your Paypal account.

    Hope this helps.

    @jeffereyk8 Normally, we send this address to paypal when we redirect a user for payment but it doesn't seem to be working for your account, maybe you should contanct PayPal about this.

    The address for for instant payment notifications is

    https://www.jotform.com/ipns/paypal.php

    You guys keep saying the same thing over and over about not getting email notifs. I'd be happy if your notices just made my spam folder but they do not. I've adjusted my spam score and whitelisted your domain and STILL not getting the email notifications ever since you guys got hit with the Dos.
