Users are not receiving email notifications and broadcasts

 
Important: Broadcasts are not included in Starter plans.

If some users have reported not receiving email notifications and/or broadcasts, there are several things you can check.

  • Ask the user to check their spam folder and any social/promotions tabs they may be using. Some email notifications and broadcasts may end up there.
  • For email notifications, you can ask the user to whitelist the address which is where notification emails come from - no-reply@awardsplatform.com. For broadcasts the from address is postmaster@mg.awardsplatform.com
  • Try not to use any characters or words in the message subject - like !!!! or WINNER - which might be flagged by anti-spam software.
  • Check whether the user has unsubscribed from broadcasts and notifications.
  • If you have added a sender address to your notifications then the recipient's mail server may be blocking the email. See Email delivery problems for more information.

If you've tried all of these and they're still not receiving messages, please contact support.

Tip: If multiple users specify they do not receive email notifications (this does not apply to the receipt of broadcasts), please make sure the notification is active by going to Settings > General > Notifications (see screenshot).
