    Why autoresponder email is sent twice?

    Asked by jrittenhouse on September 05, 2013 at 11:01 AM


    someone filled out my form, first one to complete it... they got the correct autoresponder first, but then received an additional email as if they're answer to one of the questions had changed. They never changed it, and it still shows as their initial response so I'm not sure why they got the second email.

    Hello jrittenhouse,

    Upon checking your form, I found that you have multiple autoresponder in your form and that seems to be the reason of autoresponder being sent twice.

    Here is the explanation:

    As you can see in the above image, one normal autoresponder is created and two conditional autoresponder is also created.

    When the form is submitted, normal (unconditional ) autoresponder will send the email to the user. Please check the conditions now, if the conditions are met one another autoresponder (conditional) will also be sent.

    You should actually delete the normal (unconditional) autoresponder and your user will only receive one autoresponder.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you!

    Although you should not have issue with Mozilla, using chrome browser is advisable.
