    Email Notification Delays / Not Delivered

    Asked by Princesscapades on July 06, 2013 at 12:06 PM


    As of yesterday, we seem to be having a very long delay (7 hours plus) receiving email notifications to a specific inbox (custom domain). We had no problems in the past.

    Our custom inbox is able to send / receive emails fine to all addresses.

    Using noreply@jotform.com, the joform notifications are successfully delivered to all addresses EXCEPT @gmail.com inboxes and our custom inbox.

    Launching a test email manually delivers just fine to our custom inbox.

    When we first saw this issue yesterday, we changed the sender email from “Email” to “noreply@jotform.com”, which initially fixed the problem, but we’re seeing it this morning with these new settings as well.

    We can see the time stamps on the sent notification emails being correct, but they aren’t in our inbox until much, much later.


    Submission ID

    238931149429865507 (hasn't delivered yet)

    A previous submission using the "email" field as the sender that has now been deleted delivered about 7 hours later:

    Sent Fri 7/5/2013 4:20 PM

    Delivered Sat 7/6/2013 6:53 AM

    Sender subscribed@live.com

    Example form 1


    Example form 2 (shorter form)



    What we’ve done so far and still having issues:

    -          Change sender email from “email” to noreply@jotform.com (as mentioned above) 

    -          Whitelisted noreply@jotfrom.com with our inbox 

    -          Contacted our email provider (1and1) to see if there were issues (directed us to you as we were able to successfully troubleshoot all functionality in our inbox)

    -     Cleared the form cache on our account

    Any help you can provide would be appreciated.
