    Unable To Receive Email Form Notification

    Asked by jmullett on June 06, 2013 at 10:02 AM

    I have an email setup and the test email works but when I actually submit the form I don't get an email. Any suggestions?

    Please try adding a Sender Name in your email notification and see if it resolves the issue.

    To add a Sender Name, click the Reply-To and Recipient Settings.

    If the issue still persist, please contact us again.

    We're having the same problem, but with an existing form that we've been using for some time.  Test emails work, but the form no longer sends notification emails out.

    Please let us know your form ID so that we can have a look at your issue.
