    Hello perrymanku,

    Here are the detailed description of all the fields on notification alert:

    Sender Email: You can set it to either JotForm email or add your own custom email address. When the submission email is sent, the person receiving the email will see from where the email is coming from. It is actually "From Email Address" when you receive it as an alert. We recommend you to use "noreply@jotform.com"

    Reply-To Email: When the user receiving the submission email hits the reply button of email client, the email address set in Reply-To Email will be used and the reply will be sent to that email address


    Sender Name: JotForm

    Sender Email: noreply@jotform.com

    Reply-To Email: {email} / when you reply email form your inbox, the reply will go to your form user

    Recipient Email: perry@perrymanku.com


    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!

    Your email alert setting is optimal, and you should be receiving the notifications with no problem, but if ever you do get problems, try adding our IP addresses into your host's whitelist.

    Here's how:
