    I have an application form for a dog rescue. The form is supposed to forward to three different people who are responsible for various items on the application. 

    The notifier has always worked up until about two months ago where one of the people stopped getting the apps. 

    She claims that the jot form address is in her contacts, the applications are not going into her spam folder and they aren't in her mail box. 

    she us using aol on what I assume is either low speed DSL or dial up.. lives in remote area of Wisconsin. 

    can you assist me with this

    Can you share to us the AOL email address that is having the issue. We will check it on the email logs also.

    You can also view the email logs of your form submission in your account email history logs

    user guide: -How-to-view-all-your-form-Email-History

    You can check if there are issue with the specific AOL email you mentioned that was having the problem.

    We do have some other users that posted the same issue with regards to email accounts that are from AOL. It seems that there are some policy settings on AOL email that is conflicting with JotForm emails and is causing AOL email address being blocked or bounce listed on our end.

    The most common resolution applied is using other email besides the AOL one. If there is an option for your end-user to use other email, please suggest that option also.

    The email account with issues is mgilberts@aol.com

    She was recieving them for several months then about 6 weeks ago they stoped.

    This lady is not computer savy.. so nothing complicated is going to work for her

    The email you provided is in the bounce list. It is the reason why she is not getting the notifiers.

    I have removed the email address in the bounce list. Please verify if it is now working. As you can see on the screenshot, the reason is AOL seems like blocking or rejecting the emails. If the issue persist, you can use a different email rather that AOL.

    Please check these helpful guides for your reference.

    Thank you 

    I have advised her to create a new account with gmail or yahoo. She is not tech savey so there's an issue with that as well.
