    Email notifications: Unable to receive email when using custom sender (setup using verification code)

    Asked by mdc011 on February 18, 2016 at 08:28 AM

    Hi,  I've been through all your posts on setting up email notifications, checking spam, adding to whitelist etc, but nothing works.

    I get emails during Test, I get email from Preview.

    If I enter my own email address in the live form I get the automated response I set up.


    What I don't get is a notification from a live form.

    I had checked the Bounce list and cleared that, and added the whitelist domains, and I no longer appear on the whitelist, still the notification doesn't get through.


    Are you able to check which emails are getting sent ?

    Was also a bit surprised to see that you count all these test's against the quota - can this be reset ?

    It seems like there is a problem on email notifications not being received by target recipients when you used a custom sender email that was setup using a verification code, this seems to affect users that are in the EU region. Could you try using our default sender email, noreply@jotform.com. And see if you are able to receive the notification. Make sure to fill out the form and click the submit button when testing notifications.

    I have informed our back-end team regarding the issue. Apologies for the inconvenience. We will update you as soon as this has been resolved.

    Thanks, that works now - even though I had it originally set it like this before trying the custom sender email.
