    Hello Juan,

    Upon checking your form's notification email alert, I found that you have not selected the "Sender Email". Please check the screenshot below:


    That could be the reason why you are not receiving submission emails. Please be noted that if "Sender Email" is not selected, the receiving email server will most likely mark the email as spam or simply reject it.

    You should select/add the "Sender E-mail" in your notification as this is required to be added for your notification alert to work properly.

    You can select "noreply@jotform.com", "noreply@formresponse.com" or you can also setup a "Custom Sender E-mail" option in your account. The following guides should help you:



    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
