    The email recipients of your notification is not in the bounce list. I checked the mail logs and I saw that the notifications are being sent. Here's a screenshot:

    The notification is configured properly. Please try to check the spam/junk folders. You can also try whitelisting the JotMail IP addresses.

    If the issue persist, then please try to create a separate notification for the other recipient.

    Apologies for the inconvenience. There seems to be a problem with the email alerts as of the moment. I have forwarded this problem to our developers to have it checked and fixed.

    We had a brief outage with emails, however, everything should be back up once again.  Emails that were not sent during this time are queued and should be sent shortly.  My apologies for the delay.

    THat's not true nothing was queued and sent back. I never received emails that were missed. this is a ridiculous issue to have and you have it much too frequently.

    This only pertains to emails that were missed in the last couple of hours.  If you would like to have us look at your specific form, please create a new thread letting us know which form you are having trouble with, as well as the addresses that are not receiving the notifications and we will be happy to have a look.
