    Notifications are being delayed

    Asked by transtrumbp on November 11, 2016 at 01:01 PM

    Hello, I've noticed recently that the notification emails for most or all of my forms are being significantly delayed. So for example, when a form is submitted, I used to receive notifications within a minute or two, but now they're taking 10-20 minutes or longer. Is there something that can be done to fix this?

    Let me know

    The delay on emails may be caused by routing of emails to your mail host service provider. You can try adding another email address in your recipients list that uses a different domain such as gmail, in order to have a secondary email address if in case one incurs delay. I would recommend this so for you to be able to observe your email deliveries.

    You may also ask your IT for your mail services in order to check on their end if there is a delay happening on the routing or probably a server lag.

    In any case if you have further questions, please let us know.

    I'll try a different email address, but it does seem odd that nothing changed on my end. It worked great, then all of a sudden it started delaying.
