    Not receiving email notifications

    Asked by McAfeeTaft on September 15, 2015 at 12:30 PM

    We have over 85 form submissions, some from two or more hours ago that aren't being emailed like they have been in previous days. We have not reached our submission limit yet. Please advise.

    I have checked email address that is set as recipient email address inside of your notification and that email address was on the bounce list. Our system gave following result:

    e*****@mca*******.com is IN the bounce list 

    Reason(s) : smtp; 554 Email rejected due to security policies - http://kb.mimecast.com/Mimecast_Knowledge_Base/Administration_Console/Monitoring/Mimecast_SMTP_Error_Codes#554

    I have now removed it from our bounce list and it should be working fine now.

    You can follow this guide on how to check and remove the email from bounce list.

    And this guide How to setup email alerts to prevent email bouncing related issues.

    Also you can Whitelist JotMails IP Addresses.

    Please test your form and check if you are receiving submissions now. 


    Your email address is not in bounce list. To assist you properly please open new thread and provide us email address to which you are not receiving email Notifications or ID of your form. 


    You posted same question on this thread https://www.jotform.com/answers/662380-Notification-emails-not-being-received#4 Please read an answer provided by my colleague on that thread.
