    My form stopped sending notifications to email

    Asked by akona on September 21, 2016 at 08:55 AM

    My form stopped sending notifications to email. When I login I can see the submissions, but for some reason they are not sent through to email. There is a notification saying "You're almost out of space!, UPGRADE NOW" so I went in and deleted old submissions but still I'm not getting submissions. I would really appreciate your help with this.

    You are about to reach the 100 submissions limit  per month, that your free account has. Also, the account reached the stored submissions limit which is only 500 for free accounts, that's why the system did the automatic deletion of the old ones.  So my suggestion is that you upgrade to avoid an imminent suspension until the counters reset next month.

    Thank you for your response. I believe the issue is deeper than that though, because the counters reset but still no emails are coming through from the form. Would you have any idea what else could be causing this?
