    You may also try to login to your webmail and see if Jotform mails are marked as spam. If it is, please add it on your safe sender list.

    Whitelisting Jotforms IPs should also work out as what AtacanC suggested.

    You may also try removing the current notification/autoresponder setup and re-create them. See if that helps.

    I am also not receiving emails. I know that someone tried to send a test email because I saw the notification on my Jotform app, but the email did not arrive. The address is working and I have no problems with it otherwise. I have also forgotten my password, and cannot get it without getting an email... and there lies a problem.
