What are some common troubleshooting tips when users do not receive emails from email@example.com?
When users are not receiving email invitations from firstname.lastname@example.org, consider performing the following:
Ensure the correct email address in ArcGIS Online
Ensure that the email address users entered in their ArcGIS Online profile is the correct email address. Follow the steps below to check users' email:
Note: Only Administrators can modify email addresses associated with ArcGIS Online user names.
Note: Email addresses cannot be changed if using an enterprise login.
Note: Users can test if their email client is restricting notification emails by temporarily switching the email address associated with their account to a public email client (Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, etc) that does not have any restrictions in place. To send a sample notification email: 1. Go to: https://www.arcgis.com/home/signin.html 2. Click the "Forgot Password?" link 3. Enter the username that is not receiving notification emails. This sends an automated email to a user’s email address. The email contains the subject: “Your ArcGIS account password”. If this message fails to arrive at the original email client but does arrive at the public email client, then it is likely that the original email client is restricting or blocking the email.If the email client is restricting notification emails, this issue must be resolved by whomever has configured the restrictions. Users will likely need to work with their IT department. Depending on how the email client is configured it may require whitelisting emails from *@arcgis.com. This rule must supersede any restrictions on emails from *@amazonses.com.
