    Why did the notifier on my form stop working yesterday?

    Asked by rrupert on May 06, 2016 at 01:56 PM

    The autoresponder is okay (I think?), but the notifier stopped sending messages yesterday.

    Hello rrupert,

    As of checking your email logs, I see two failed emails in it. However, I do not see your email in our bounce list as of yet. 

    As a measure, can you try logging in to your webmail account and add noreply@jotform.com to your address book?

    An alternative measure is if you have another email address which you can use as sender for your email notifications, you can setup an SMTP to your account and use it as sender.

    If after doing any of these and the problem persists, please do let us know so we can look into this further.

    Looking forward to your updates.

    I should have received an email from your reply to this question. I never did. I don't seem to be able to receive any emails from jotform at all.

    Thanks for your response, rrupert.

    Have you checked your junk mail folder? I have checked the last logs and both claim that the emails were sent.

    If you are using an email client application such as MS Outlook, Eudora, or anything that requires to configure to download emails, please log in on your webmail instead and check the junk mail folder there. The reason for this is because your email client only download emails that land to your webmail's inbox. Anything else are disregarded.

    If you have questions, please do let us know.

    There was big delay. The emails came through about 14 hours after you posted. I received a couple of notifications from form, as well. Looks like it's working again. Must have been something with my email host. Although I was receiving emails from other non-JotForm addresses.

    Thank you for taking the time updating us on the status. Good to know that issue is resolve and emails were now available.

    I cannot find the means to check if a sent email is delayed or not on our end. We can only see if sent or not sent -- if there is issue with the email.

    But one tool that can also help you identify if there is problem with your outgoing submission email, is by reviewing the emails being sent from your form and email account.

    You can review the Email sent history logs on your account.
