    502 Bad Gateway displayed when using Custom Sender Email Address

    Asked by Basil N Babaa on March 10, 2015 at 12:07 PM
    502 Bad Gateway nginx/1.2.3

    This only seems to be occurring on this one form...

    Why, How can I fix this without having to rebuild the entire form?

    I figured it out.

    It did not like my Sender Email.

    Apparently it only likes noreply@jotform.com.  Not preferred solution, but I'll live with that for now.

    It seems you were having a problem with a 502 Bad Gateway.

    As far as I know I don't think that should have happened because of the sender email.

    There was probably a temporary issue causing it to occur between our servers and your end.

    Did you try a few times and that kept happening maybe?

    Looking at your screenshot and account I believe you are having this issue with this form here http://www.jotformpro.com/form/50685543491966

    What was the email address that was resulting in that problem if you don't mind my asking? Is it one of the basil one that you had it occur when set to that?
