    Autoresponder not sending test emails?

    Asked by lynnclark on September 22, 2011 at 05:31 PM

    i followed the instructions to create an autoresponder on a form and it will not send me test emails. Any ideas about what's going on? I don't want to deploy it unless I know it's working.


    Thanks, Lynn

    An email seems to be sent and accepted by Yahoo. So, I am not sure why you are not receiving it. Can you check your spam folder?

    update: I finally did receive 3 of the 4 test emails, but they took about 3 hours to arrive. On the 4th, I got an error email saying that it was taking too long to send the email. They came in to my regular inbox. It's a mystery. I've had a few issues with yahoo lately and am considering a swtich.

    We seems to be banned from yahoo temporarily. It is now accepting them the emails. That explains the mystery.
