    Please try removing the notification mail and re-enter it again, check keenly to ensure email entered is correct..

    You can also try to change your Sender Name to JotForm, and your Sender-Email to noreply@jotform.com and then do a test? If this doesn't work please do let us know.

    We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. I've checked our email logs and your notifications have been successfully sent to 3 different recipients. I've also made a test submissions. It seems to be working fine. Did you check your spam / junk folder? You can also add JotMails ip addresses to your mail providers whitelists.

    I went ahead and swapped out the form info for JotForm and noreply@jotform.com and did a test. I did not recieve the test email. Oddly enough when I changed it back it started working again.




    These are not going in my spam/junk folder. I was able to create the same exact form from scratch and it worked perfectly fine. At this point I am up and running again so I'm really just trouble shooting for your end. I had this problem before when I duplicated a form. I noticed some things in the source code that were still relevant to the old form that I used to duplicate the new form. I think there may be some issues with the duplication process? The notification emails and response emails tend to have some trouble makeing a connectionn if you make a duplicate of an older form. When you "reset" the Sender and Recipient Details like I did it seems to trigger something. Seems to be a work around at this point though. Thanks for your help!
