Auto Responder doesnt appear to be working correctlyAsked by currency_research on January 07, 2016 at 10:49 AM
My colleague contacted you yesterday about the auto-responder not working correctly for the form 'Europe CCS Breakout Form 2016'.
This form was cloned from another form (Americas CCS Breakout Form 2015) for which the auto-responder worked perfectly.
I have tried testing several times myself and have had no auto-responder, and my colleague has received an auto-responder that went directly to her spam folder - again, which didn't happen previously.
I see you have reported the same issue on this thread : http://www.jotform.com/answers/737773-Auto-Responder-is-not-working
One of my colleagues replied to you and seems you have followed the advice, since I tested your form and have entered my email address, I checked the email log and I can see the email was successfully sent.
Could you try again please ?
Do let us know if it works now, if not, please provide us with the email address with you tested, we will make a test in order to replicate your issue.
Thanks Kevin - i didnt actually change anything (that i am aware of!) but the email did send - directly to my junk folder, as it also did for my colleague. I havent changed any mailbox settings, and am a little worried that the mae will happen to all the respondants - it there anyting that can be done from the jotform end to stop the autoresponder being directed straight into junk folder?
