    Email alerts going to 2 of 3 designated staff.

    Form: Clone of Winter Haven Public Library - Get a Library Card Online
    Email Alert: Online Registration - Joyce
    Online link: http://whpl.mywinterhaven.com/galco2.htm

    This form is set up with 3 email alerts to staff.  About 2 weeks ago, one of the staff, Joyce, stopped receiving the alerts.  We use Microsoft Outlook.  We've troubleshooted as follows:

       >Verified Joyce's email address: jgrauer@mywinterhaven.com
       >Made sure Junk emails was turned off in Outlook.
       >Had IT make sure they weren't getting caught in the spam filter at the server level. 
       >Deleted and recreated the Email Alert.
       >Swapped out Joyce's email with 2 other staff email addresses and 1 personal email address.  They all worked!
       >Made sure incoming emails were not redirected via a rule.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you,

    Hi Linda,

    It should be fine now. Kindly test it on your side. The email was bounced due to the following reason:

    jgrauer@mywinterhaven.com is IN the bounce list  

    Reason(s) : 5.4.7 - Delivery expired (message too old) [Default] 451-'4.3.0 Message temporarily deferred. Please try again later.'

    We'd suggest you to please check this article as it may help prevent this issue from occuring again.
