I am not getting notifications when someone fills out a form on my website.Asked by SherriOhler on March 17, 2016 at 08:37 PM
I just found two form submissions in my inbox here but I thought I would get them in my email. Can you please help?
I checked our mail logs and the email notifications appear to be sent successfully to your email address.
Please check your spam box if the email was sent there. I also checked your form and I noticed that there is no Sender E-mail set. I would suggest you use the email@example.com as your Sender E-mail.

spam was the test email. The client form did not come through at all!
I made a test submission in your form to see if the notification will be sent. According to our mail log, the notification was sent successfully to your address.
Can you please check your inbox if the email was received? I will wait for your reply.
Okay I got it, in my spam. Very odd! I have over 2000 emails in my spam,
I have not emptied it in a long time yet yours is the only one that
shows up when I search 'jotform'. The one from the client yesterday is
But thanks for helping anyway! I will just have to check the site often!
You might also consider to add a custom sender email to your notifications, as many email providers take noreply addresses as spam, and block them:
