    Our University Uses Jotform.  We have many forms with autoresponders.  I was updating one of our forms yesterday which sends an email to the address entered by the user on the form. I noticed that when testing, I did not receive the autoresponse email.  After some testing, it seems that when the email is one of our university addresses ( the autoresponse mail is not reaching our email servers.


    I had our system administrator check the "gateway" to our email to see if the email was arriving on campus.  3 out of the 4 emails via form submissions I tested yesterday and today failed to reach  1 did reach campus about 10 minutes after form submission. Every form submission sent to my off-campus account comes through right away.

     I had another user test the form, she submitted 3 times with her etsu address and 1 time with an off campus address.  Non of emails with the etsu address reached our campus.  The off-campus address worked fine.

    I also tried the "test" email from within jotform, which sends to a different address.  None of those test emails arrived on campus for delivery.

    Any help you can provide is greatly appreciated!  If you need more specific information, please let me know.

    I have checked Autoresponder setting of form you provided and I saw that in your second Autoresponder you did not set Sender email.

    I would suggest you to set Sender email to in both Autoresponders. 

    I have also checked submissions of mentioned form and there are 9 submissions. I have checked email addresses that should received Autoresponder and I found 2 failed submissions. Other submissions were sent successfully.

    Also email addresses that I checked are not in bounce list. 

    To avoid it happening in future I would suggest checking this guide: 

    Hope this will help. Let us know if you need further assistance.
