Hello @QB QB,

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

When the Request type shows “Invalid issue type” is because the issue type was deleted or removed from the project.

To fix the issue, please, go to Project settings > Issue types > Actions > Edit issue types.

Then, drag and drop the issue types from one column to another. 

On the screenshot below, you can see the default issue types of an ITSM template (the same you are using), so you can add the same issue types.

Once you associate the issue type to the project again, you will be able to use the Emailed requests again.

Note that it must be the same as shown on the screenshot, the ones with [System] on the name + Task and Sub-task. 

Kind regards,
