Service account unable to receive email from Atlassian


I'm trying to get access to a BitBucket repository for a service account, but the account is not receiving the invitation email.  It also doesn't receive email when I create or revoke an API token, but other accounts do.  Our email administrator has determined that the email doesn't make it to our email server, and the issue must be on the Atlassian side.

The nonworking account name is [removed by Atlassian].  I know the account receives external email (tested from my personal yahoo mail account).  A sample working account that does receive email is [removed by Atlassian].

Is there something in the name that is causing Atlassian not to send mail?  I've tried enabling all marketing email subscriptions from Atlassian for the account, with no success.  It receives email from the Community (like when it earns a badge for likes), but nothing from the main site.

Hi @rbeha , welcome to the Community!

Thanks for providing the second email and screenshot - the first email address in your post actually had a typo in the domain. The other information was helpful in figuring that out! I've edited out the email addresses from your post and removed the screenshot to protect your email addresses.

I've confirmed we were suppressing notifications to that address as we'd previously received errors from your organization's mail server:

550: 550 #5.1.0 Address rejected.

The suppression on our end has been cleared and the next invitation should go through. At that point, if it's not delivered then your email administrator should at least see something in the server logs to troubleshoot. I suspect it should go through fine though, as you noted the account can receive email from your personal yahoo address.

P.S. as you observed, Community emails use a different mail relay - which is why those emails were delivered but the Bitbucket invitations were not. Just wanted to tie up that mystery :)

It works now!  Thank you so much.
