New user not receiving invitation and mail verification



I am trying to invite new user but he is not receiving invitation mail. When trying to login directly, the user is requested to verify his mail but the verification e-mail is not coming either.  

Junk box is empty, tried to delete and recreate the account, resend the invite but we are not able to get e-mail to proceed.

Can you please advise ?

Hi @andrey_taskov ,

Checking our mail service logs for your email domain, I found several instances of bounce errors like the following:

550: 550 5.4.1 Recipient address rejected: Access denied.

I've cleared these errors out from our mail service, so the next attempt to resend the verification should be processed from our mail servers again.

Since your email is handled by Office365, you (or someone at your company with Exchange admin permissions) should follow the steps in Unblocking Office365 emails for Atlassian Cloud . This will ensure future emails don't bounce back to our mail services and put email addresses at your company in this limbo state where emails from Atlassian Cloud aren't being delivered.

It seems that the Atlassian account was created very shortly after the e-mail account was created in Microsoft.

I would guess due to async operations on Microsoft side and eventual consistency approach, this led to sending invitation from Atlasian to mailbox that was not ready to receive and it bounced back. On Atlasian site from what I understood that was treated as not existing mailbox and spam attempt that was later blocked and this is why mails were not sent. 

All good now. Lesson learned will be to delay(offset) the creation of Atlassian account for new user in the organisation that has just been given freshly created Microsoft account and mailbox.

@andrey_taskov -

Welcome to the community.  One thing to look into - On the user side, he/she will need to check with their email management team to determine if they have any setup which blocks the verification emails from being processed on the user side.

Hope this helps.
