New users don't receive verification mail

Dear team,

I have created a new user and have given that person access to confluence, jira software and jira service desk.

I have also triggered the welcome mail. But for one reason or another, that person does not receive the verification mail. Re-setting the PW does not do the trick either.

We have already ensured that the mails are not being filtered by our company's firewall. 

Is there an option that I - as an administrator - crate a PW for the user and share it with her then so she can log on?

For our Cloud instances, I don't believe there is anything that you can do from your end to track down this message.  My understanding is that the Atlassian Cloud instance is sending this message.  It is possible this could have been blocked or filtered by some other service closer to the cloud side than to the mail server of the recipient.

In this case I would recommend creating a support ticket on   You will need to provide your Cloud URL in order to create this ticket, but if you explain this issue in your ticket and provide the new user's email address, perhaps one of our Cloud support team members can better help track this down to see if there is something more Atlassian can help out with here.

Hi Andrew,

thx for your response. I did indeed create a support ticket and they were able to resolve it on the backend. Unfortunately I do not know the root cause for that now...
