Specific Email Notification Not WorkingAsked by smokerpete on April 19, 2014 at 05:24 PM
I am using 3 JotForms on my client's website: http://www.smokinyankeesbbq.com and on each form I have an email notification going to 2 or more email addresses separated by a comma and space. Testing each form sends an email notification to me, the developer, at email@example.com with no problems. The problem is that no matter what I do and/or try I cannot get an email notification sent to my client at firstname.lastname@example.org
You can see below that the email notification is being sent to me but not to my client! Is there an issue/problem with ymail.com? Please help cause this is impacting her business. Her ymail.com worked once.
Thanks for your help
The Email: email@example.com appears to have been added to our Bounce List. Reason as to why the emails are not being recevied. I have since removed the email from the list. Do verify if emails are being recevied by performing a submission on the form.
Reason(s) : spam
Do make sure that JotForm emails are whitelisted and not being flagged as spam.
Do let us know if the issue persists. Thank You.
Thank you for your help Cesar but I submitted requests from each form on
my client's website and she is still not receiving email notifications:
Here's what I sent her after I submitted 3 separate requests:
* /I just sent 3 requests: wedding Order Form, Catering Order Form,
and a Contact Us request./
* /Did you receive any of these 3 requests? I did but I don't see
you on the recipient list which makes me want to believe that you
are still not getting these requests./
* /Let me know. If you're still not getting any emails then I need
to contact JotForm again and get some more answers./
Here is her response: /I only got this email (the one I sent her to ask
if she received notifications). Nothing else. I feel so left out 💔/
Please help to fix this issue as it is impacting her business. Just
curious: Why/how was her email address of firstname.lastname@example.org placed on
your Bounce List? Right now changing her email address to a different
provider is not an option.
It appears the email has been placed again on the bouncle list. I have removed the email address from the list again. Please make sure that your client puts email@example.com on their safe list. If they continue to be rejcted as spam. Their email address will continue to end up on our bounce list. They may also need to speak with their Email Service Prrovider to make sure they are not blocking our emails in general.
Do let us know if you need further assistance. Thank You.
Thank you for your help. Everything is now fixed on my client's end.
Turns out that ymail (Yahoo mail) does not have a " Safe List " option.
What I had to do was add firstname.lastname@example.org to the 'Contact' list. As
long as the address is in the Contact List it will not block it. Once I
performed this task everything began working again.
Please close this support request. Thanks again.
Thank you for getting back.
I am glad that it is working fine for you.
Do get back to us if you have any questions.
