Not receiving email notification


Hi all

We're not receiving any verification emails when we set up more accounts for our domain.

We have:

  • Our domain is
  • The email we are trying to setup is
  • Confirmed the email spelling.
  • Checked the spam folder.
  • Verified our domain (DNS) in Atlassian Admin and claimed accounts
  • Tried more than one email account.
  • We currently have 2 valid accounts claimed under our domain and are trying to set up a third.
  • We don't have any corporate rules to block Atlassian.

As we're using the Free Version of Jira at the moment, I don't see a way to contact Atlassian Support directly.

Any support or suggestions would be welcome.

Is there a way I can speak to a Support Rep or log a support call as a free user?

For the purpose of an answer for the Community, here is the sequence of events and how it was resolved.

  1. I had created a new user in Office 365.
  2. I had added created a new Atlassian user using the new email address.
  3. The Verification Email from Atlassian bounced with an "access denied" error.
    • Apparently it can take some hours (up to 4?) for Office 365 to properly set up the new user/email.
  4. After trying several different options, I changed from the Free plan to the Standard Plan. This enabled me to log a ticket with Atlassian.
  5. Atlassian responded quickly, found the bounced email and unblocked the email account.
  6. Following @Daniel Eads post above, I have implemented the new rule in Exchange.

Hi @Carlos Garcia Navarro 


Thanks for your reply. I have read your post and reviewed the article. This relates to Jira notifications. This is not the problem we have.

We are not receiving Email Verifications when creating a new account. Can you check the system to see if the email has been blocked for any reason?



Sorry I misunderstood your question, Peter. Just to confirm, have you also checked the notes here:

Your issue sounds similar to this one that @Daniel Eads troubleshot for another user:  (I'm mentioning Daniel, in case he can help :-) ) Thanks!

Hi @Carlos Garcia Navarro 

Thanks again for your reply. I have checked the article and checked all of the associated points but without success.

@Daniel EadsAre you able check that and the domain are not currently being blocked please?

Hi @Peter Jenks ,

I see that the email address you mentioned did have the block issue - although I also see you were able to open a support case. The support engineer handling that case cleared out the block on that email address yesterday. Mail should be able to flow to that address now.

One thing the support engineer didn't mention - I see you're on Office 365 (and the Exchange admin). You can follow the steps in Unblocking Office365 emails for Atlassian Cloud to explicitly allow-list emails from Atlassian to avoid bounces/blocks like this from happening in the future.
