The problem was with our SMTP server and not JIRA.

check any services or listeners configured to bach updates.

I am attaching the screen shot for reference. hope that may help to dig the issue.

Hello Neeta,

If you couldn't find that Services and Listeners helped to fix the problem, you might want to have a look at the third-party plugin you have on your side, as this problem might be related to certain plugin which are related to sending email notifications out of JIRA.

I hope tha thelps.

I thnk you need to explain what the emails actually are as well - if we knew what your system is generating, we might be able to point you at the right area!

there also could be some filter subscriptions set up by someone.

you might check this area as well
