Some users not receiving email notification

Jordan Dick August 9, 2021

Hi I am admin for our account and we have a subset of our users who are unable to receive email notification. some report they have never received emails

The notification helper says that they should be and our IT helpdesk says there is no issue with emails being delivered they report that the email server just shows no logs at all for these users. 

I have seen other threads which were resolved by clearing backend issues. is it possible that a similar thing would work here?

Thanks.

Hi @Jordan Dick apart from the questions that @Lisa Grau asked, see if these users (if they have nothing in common) they have turned off their personal notifications.

But a little bit more info would come in handy:

  • Does this happen only to a project?
  • Are the users receiving any email from other projects?
  • The users do not receive any email notification what so ever?
  • Do other users receive notifications for the actions these specific users fail to receive?

 1- No it happens across multiple projects

2 - No users receive no notifications at all. and our help desk say  no emails for them from atlassian ever hit the mail sever 

3 - No

4 - Yes i have tagged a user who does get notifications and one that doesn't on the same comment only the one who does received anything

Hello @Jordan Dick and @Alex Koxaras _Relational_,

Thank you for reaching out to Community!

I was out of office, sorry for the late response.

I checked your domain on our tools, there were 36 email addresses on the suppression list due to the following error:

 550: 550 5.1.1 ...@... Recipient address rejected: …

I removed it and the notifications should work now.

Please, take your time to test and let us know how it goes.

Kind regards,
Angélica

Hello @Poul-Henning Hemberg,

Thanks for reaching out to Community!

If the affected customers are from the same domain as your email address, I found some bounces due to the error below:

550: 550-5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist. Please try 550-5.1.1 double-checking the recipient's email address for typos or 550-5.1.1 unnecessary spaces. Learn more at 550 5.1.1 https://support.google.com/mail/?p=NoSuch... - gsmtp

550: 550-5.2.1 The email account that you tried to reach is disabled. Learn more at 550 5.2.1 https://support.google.com/mail/?p=Disabled... - gsmtp

It was removed and it should work now.

Also, I saw that you created a ticket with our support related to the same issue, so if it didn’t resolve, please, share on the ticket all affected email addresses so we can check one by one and remove the blocks or bounces.

​​Kind regards,
Angélica

Hi @Jordan Dick,

It’s not possible to prevent this from happening. 

Sometimes the email address is new and the mailbox is not fully ready, that’s why the emails are blocked. 

You can share with them our domains and IPs to be whitelisted, but it may still happen.

norma_rice October 27, 2021

Hi @Angélica Luz   Can you check for the same issue where users are not receiving emails.  We’ve been through all the troubleshooting efforts mentioned above. The users are from the same domain as my email address.

Thank you,

Hello @norma_rice,

Welcome to the Community!

Checking your domain, it returned 22 email addresses with bounces related to the following errors:

550: 550-5.2.1 The email account that you tried to reach is disabled. Learn more at 550 5.2.1 https://support.google.com/mail/?p=Disabled... - gsmtp
550: 550-5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist. Please try 550-5.1.1 double-checking the recipient's email address for typos or 550-5.1.1 unnecessary spaces. Learn more at 550 5.1.1 https://support.google.com/mail/?p=NoSuch... - gsmtp

I removed those bounces and it should work now.

Kind regards,

Hi @Angélica Luz 

The specific user I am working with is still not receiving emails.  I am pretty sure we've been though all the troubleshooting scenarios listed in this post and others.  Any ideas? 

 

Thank you in advance.

Hi @norma_rice,

The issue might be related to an incident we had yesterday with Sparkpost where notifications weren't being sent. It was already resolved:

Can you check if the issue still persists?

If so, then the user can check their profile to confirm all notifications are enabled (Profile picture > Personal settings).

Also, can you use the Notification helper to confirm if they should receive the notification?

Go to  Cog icon > System > Notification helper.

Hi @Angélica Luz 

I'll have him check his emails again here shortly.  In the meantime, would you mind double checking the email addresses that were previously bounced before your update yesterday?  Would it be possible to email a list of those address so I can inquire if they are experiencing any issues?

 

We've been through all the troubleshooting efforts a few times. 

When I tried sharing an Jira ticket with him,  he did not receive the email for that either.  

Is there anything else in Cloud that would block emails sent to people in a specific user group? He mentioned that someone set up something to limit or stop emails from going to a user group he is in. So he has not received emails from Jira for nearly a year.  I tested by sending a blast email as admin and several of the users in that group and many reported back stating they received the email.  I guess I can try removing him from the user group.   

 

Any thoughts?  Is there anything else in Cloud that would block emails sent to people in a specific user group? 

 

Thank you for you assistance. 

Norma

Hi @norma_rice,

After removing the bounces it’s not possible to retrieve the list of the affected email addresses.

Since there is still one affected user, it would be better to check the email address directly to see if there are any other blocks. Maybe the user unsubscribed from Jira emails, but we would need the email address to check that.

Since you are a site admin of a premium site, please, reach out to our support on support.atlassian.com/contact and share with them the email address of the user and a ticket where they should have received a notification, so it’s possible to view the logs to confirm if the notification was sent.

norma_rice November 1, 2021

Ok Thank you @Angélica Luz 

I will try with the support team.  Have a great week ahead!

Hello, @Angélica Luz 

currently the problem with the email notification occurs on my account too.

I have stopped receiving JIRA email notifications since january 2022. Before that, I was able to receive all JIRA notifications on my email, there were no changes done to the settings at all.

I have also amended my Personal Settings as per the attached image. However I am still not receiving any email notifications.

The rest of my team members are able to receive the email notification.

Can you maybe check it if it is the problem?

Thanks

Hello @Dennis Geese,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Your email address and other six addresses from the same domain were on the suppression list due to the following reasons:

550: 550 5.1.1 ...@... Recipient address rejected: ... in virtual mailbox table

I removed the bounce and I checked on our tools that a notification was delivered already.

Kind regards,
Angélica

Hi Jordan,

do these users have anything in common? All belong to the same project?

I experienced a similar issue once, which was caused by an email being set up as IMAP when it had to be POP in one project.

Jordan Dick August 9, 2021

Hi Lisa, 

they dont they all have access to the same projects and have the same role. its about 10% of our users where do you see the IMAP vs pop email settings? is this on JiRA cloud?
