    Emails Getting Sent to Account Email instead of Recipient Email

    Asked by digitaldanny on April 27, 2014 at 01:17 PM

    My default email was set to digitaldanny@me.com, I would like the email alerts to go to service@busybees.com but when changing it it's not coming in to that email address.


    Please Help,

    Is this happening with actual submissions to your form or just by clicking the Test Email button on the Email Alert Wizard? If it's the latter, kindly attempt to create an actual submission to your form. If the issue persists, do try removing all current Email Alerts from your form and recreate new email alerts, then update teh recipient E-Mail field accordingly.

    Do let us know if the issue persists. Thank you.

    Note:  ido see you refer to email address service@busybees.com on your post yet I do see that the Email configured to your Email Alert is service@busybeesdesigns.com, I believe this second email is the one you are referring to. In any case, please verify this. Thank you.

    Hi, thank you for your response, I've tried starting from scratch with changing the recipient email as service@busybeesdesigns.com (thank you for the correction by the way). I'm not recieving the submission form as well as the test email to this address. I think it might have to do with the whitelist suggestion as i'm seeing on this forum but not sure. I did however get your reply to my post sent to my email service@busybeesdesigns.com.

    I figured it out. I used the SMPT option and enter my credentials for sending email via the email address service@busybeesdesigns.com
