    It is related with the sender address. When I tried submitting the form with the customized address I got this message:

    Current Server:

    /var/log/jotform/remoteSmtpEMAIL.log:[18/Jun/2014:12:43:41 -0400] FAILED remote SMTP to c.jotform@gmail.com from team@shortofthemonth.com Last-Form-ID : IP : Form-ID: 41685123014446 Reason SMTP Error: Could not authenticate.

    But as soon as I changed the sender to noreply@jotform.com the autoresponder was immediately received:

    Did you use Mandrill to try adding the custom sender address?
    Let us know if the problem persists.
    Thank you
