    Hello, my name is David Ruesga ans I got the following email from our Registrar, since they are having a problem with with Jotforms. Here is the email. Please help.

    Hola David,


    It appears that the jotforms website is not sending emails in response to reference requests. I went through the application process for the Spanish school, and it sent my application immediately. I then requested references, and did not receive them. I tried it again with different emails, no response. So I tried the DTS path, and used my personal email address on all three references, and received no email requesting that I fill out a reference. Could you look and see if that feature has somehow been disabled? We are receiving quite a few applications, and I have been walking applicants through the process by showing them where their references can go directly to our website and fill out a reference that way, but it is not very efficient. :) I looked around JotForms, but couldn't see where to fix it myself. :)

    We would like to apologize for any inconvenience. 

    Can you try to check if the email fields match the selected field indicated in the E-mail Recipient of each corresponding email autoresponder, please?

    Also, can you try if by changing the Sender E-mail address of the email autoresponder to or would solve the issue?

    We will wait for your response. Thank you.

    Thank you for your help... Here us the email:

    So, I received this one in my gmail, but did not receive any at the Registrar address. Did you receive any at Communications? I have tried submitting requests to my personal account before with no success, so this is good news. :)

    Dear connie hellmuth,
    This is from the registrar office of Youth With A Mission El Paso - Juárez.

    You may do so in just a few minutes using our online reference form. If you prefer to print and fill the form by hand, please respond to this email with your relationship to the applicant (pastor, YWAM leader, employer, etc.), and we will send you the correct form to complete.

    If I understand you correctly, you're saying that the Autoresponder email is now working.  Is that correct?

    If you want to receive a notification on this email address (registrar@ywa****.org) then you need to set up an email notification and make this email as the recipient. In this way, if someone completed the form, an email will be sent on the recipient. Here are some helpful guides:


    Let us know if this is now what you need. Thank you.
