    Emails not delivered starting around mid-day 9/16.

    Asked by csmarketing on September 17, 2014 at 12:18 PM

    We have several forms with conditions dictating who gets an email (i.e. "If state = tx send to X@email.com). Starting around 2 p.m. CST these emails seem to have stopped being sent. 


    Checking the email history in the logs all instances of emails since then look like this:

    ·           Tue, 16 Sep 14 - 14:19

    Email failed to c***@***.com; j***@***.com; c***@***.com; s***@***.com  

    ·           Tue, 16 Sep 14 - 14:19

    Email sent to c***@***.com; j***@***.com; c***@***.com; s***@***.com


    At that time time no reply email changed from noreply@jotform.com to noreply@jotmails.com.

    Our apologies! We have had a problem with our default sending method that causes the email issues, but this just a temporary and it will be soon resolved.

    I have also forwarded your report to our backend team so you will get updates once this is fixed. While waiting, please try using the following alternatives for sending mails using your SMTP or using Mandrill servers:

    Mandrill: http://www.jotform.com/help/236-How-to-use-Mandrill-to-Send-Emails-From-Your-Own-Email-Address  

    SMTP: http://www.jotform.com/help/244-How-to-Setup-SMTP-for-a-Form  


    We thank you for your understanding on this matter! If you require any further assistance, feel free to contact us.

    Has this issue popped up again? The forms were working fine last night, but as of 8:12 AM they don't seem to be sending to all the recipients they are supposed to anymore.

    As far as I know our developers had resolved the issue. 

    Anyhow though, I did take a look through your email logs and from what I can see it looks like our server should be sending these out again. I see there are quite a few recipients that it logged.

    Can you please check your Email History and if possible check to verify whether those email addresses received anything then let us know?

    The email history says that they were sent, and have confirmation that they were sent. 

    Has jotform changed how it handles the TO field in emails? Yesterday (before and after the outage) all the emails were listed in the TO field. This morning, only the recipients email is listed. 

    For example: 

    Yesterday's email - everyone included in the same email TO line :

    To: csmarketing@company.com, person2@company.com, person3@company.com

    Today's email - Each person seems to get an individual email:

    To: csmarketing@company.com

    To: person2@company.com

    To: person3@company.com


    Is there any way to revert back to yesterday's styling? It will help us know who was included on the submission.

    I think we did not change any of the styling on how the email notifiers were being sent when the email issue was fixed.


    To: csmarketing@company.com, person2@company.com, person3@company.com

    You must be referring to the mutliple-email recipient method.

    Check this user guide https://www.jotform.com/help/39-Send-Notifications-to-Multiple-Recipients


    If the notification emails are coming in as individual emails then it must be because there were separate notification for each email address

    The number of notifiers in the Email List in Email Alert can be the number of separate submission email that will be sent.

    So if you want to notification emails to be sent like this

    To: csmarketing@company.com, person2@company.com, person3@company.com

    then, just follow the method described in the user guide 



    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.
