Jira User Not Receiving Email Notifications


I am a Jira administrator for the company that I work for, and I have a customer who has not received an email since 10/5/21.  I’ve tried creating a support zip, downloading it, and looking for anything that stuck out and I was unable to find anything.  I've also checked the notification helper to see if there was a configuration issue, and all seems to be well on that end also.  He is a watcher on all issues that he wishes to receive notifications on.  I've read in a few forums where Atlassian needed to do some backend work to resolve this issue.  Can you please help me with this?

Hi Brittany,

I would submit a support request to Atlassian with the user's email to see if it has gotten blacklisted by Atlassian for some reason.

I recently had this issue. It turned out the user was sending email from our jira instance to Junk folder. If it is narrowed down to just one user I would have them check their rules in their mailbox and also the Junk folder.

Hi Tim. I checked with the user and they don't have any rules set in their mailbox (MS Outlook).  Thanks for the suggestion.

Hmmm and I see the test message gets sent out properly. I think we are narrowing down the problem to the User's mailbox and not so much an issue with Jira especially if it is a single user. I don't think it's a blacklisting issue since I'm assuming the rest of the company is receiving notifications. I would reach out to your Outlook admins and see if they can see any messages are being blocked.

Are you able to send a test email to the user? If they receive a mail that way, it proves that the underlying mail mechanism is working properly.

Hi Dave.  Yes, I have sent a test email already.  Apparently, the message got sent, but the user never received it.

Sounds like it's being blocked somewhere in your email environment. Time to escalate to your email admins.
