Hi @Patrick Luchner , welcome to the Community!

It's possible the email account returned an error to our mail delivery service - this can happen for a variety of reasons such as the mailbox not being ready to receive mail yet (if it is newly created), or if the mail server believed the message was spam and sent it back. In this case, our mail service places a pause on further deliveries to that account.

I can check for this condition on a particular mail address, but would need to know the email address of the user, or their mail domain (if it is not a large public mail provider). If you are uncomfortable posting the domain here, you could alternatively email me directly at deads at with the users' email address, and I will check our mail services for this condition and reply back here with the results.

Hi Daniel, 


We have a similar issue. A new user didn't receive their invitation email. Will you be able to check for us too?

Hi @Tanuja Awasthi Singh ,

I see you opened a case with Atlassian Support as well and we were able to get the user unblocked. Based on the response code mentioned in the support case, you might benefit from adding a mail flow rule to Exchange to help set the correct SCL for emails coming from Atlassian. Details are here:

Hi Daniel,

I seem to be having a similar issue. Can you help me unblock a user as well?

Hi @Delasha Long ,

I found one user on your domain (first name starting with 'j', last name ending with 'n') that was on the block list for a bounced email quite a ways back. That user didn't have any recent blocked emails in the mail logs however, so I'm not sure that was the correct user who's having the problem right now.

Does this user share the same domain name as you? I see a number of blocks on what looks like a secondary domain affiliated with your Atlassian Cloud site, but would want to confirm the address before clearing out the pauses on addresses from that domain.

If you don't feel comfortable confirming that info publicly on Community, you can alternatively open a support case and mention the email address of the person in question in the initial details.


I'll open a support case to protect the identity of the client. Thanks for your help!
