    I have checked the email address of your account,, and I see it ended up on our bounce list. When emails are bouncing, it means that the recipient server is refusing o accept our emails, and here is the exact error message our system received when our emails started getting rejected:

    Amazon SES has suppressed sending to this address because it has a recent history of bouncing as an invalid address. For more information about how to remove an address from the suppression list, see the Amazon SES Developer Guide:

    (Amazon SES is the service we use for sending most of our emails.)

    In simpler terms, your server was returning errors saying that an email account does not exist. As our emails could not be delivered to that address, it ended up on our bounce list.

    I have now removed your address both from our bounce list, and from Amazon SES' suppression list, so if there are no further errors being provided by the recipient server the emails should not be going through fine. However, if your server continues rejecting our emails the address will only end up back on the bounce list.

    I would highly recommend going through your forms' notification emails, and making sure that all the information such as Sender Name and Sender Email are set up correctly, as an incorrect setup there might cause the recipient to refuse the emails, thinking it is spam. The following guide describes the most optimal way to set up email notifications, which is least likely to get rejected by recipients:

    You can also contact your IT department or system administrator and ask them to whitelist our sender addresses and IPs, so that your server is not refusing our emails. The following guide will help them with what to whitelist:

    Please let us know how it goes.
