    There was an error on your SMTP configuration. Due to that error, our system automatically changed your email sender's address for your form ID 62718110102440 to noreply@jotform.com to prevent issues arising from your account.

    Please log in to your JotForm account (http://www.jotform.com) to correct your SMTP configuration.

    Here's our guide for setting up an SMTP using Gmail: https://www.jotform.com/help/392-How-to-Use-Your-Gmail-Account-as-Your-Email-Sender-via-SMTP. You have to use your full email address as the username and use port 587/TLS respectively.

    Also, you cannot use an SMTP when both Send Uploads as Attachment and PDF Attachment are enabled in the email settings. These features will only work when noreply@jotform.com is used. If you'd like to use your own email as the sender, you need to disable these in the form.
