    How shoudkl i fix it now and why does this happen.

    To prevent this kind of issues you need to be very careful when creating Email Alerts. You need to  take in account every detail of the settings in the notifications.

    For example the Sender E-mail must be setup to noreply@jotform.com, otherwise issues like yours may happen. So, please change that to noreply@jotform.com.


    Also, be careful to no leave the default option Please Select as  Sender Name.  In your case your setting is correct.

    So please do the changes I mentioned above and test your form. I will also recommend you to check the next guide, which has important instructions: How to setup email alerts to prevent email bouncing related issues.


    I hope this helps.
