Managing Notification Emails

Reply To

The Reply To email is where replies to notification emails are sent to.

By default, email notifications are set to No Reply To. This means if you reply to a notification email, it'll go to no-reply@wufoo.com and bounce back to you.

If you have an Email field in your form, you can change the Reply To to that field—this means if you reply to a notification email, it goes to the email address entered by the person who filled out your form so you can follow up with people directly.

You can also add a cc by customizing your email so replies can go to the cc.

Editing the Reply To doesn't change the From email address—notification emails always come from no-reply@wufoo.com.

Customizing Your Email

It's only possible to customize the from name and subject line.

To edit the from name and subject line:

  1. Open your form's notifications.
  2. At the bottom of the My Inbox box, click Customize Notification Email.
  3. Enter Your Name or Company. This is the text that shows as the from name in the email, but the from email is always no-reply@wufoo.com.
  4. Add cc's or bcc's, if ya want.
  5. Enter the Message Subject. The defaults is your form title and the entry ID, like Pizza Palace Order Form [#13], but you can customize this however you'd like.
  6. Click Done.
  7. Click Save.
TIP! You can use templating to pull field data from your form into the subject line of your email notification.
Sending Emails in Plain Text

To send your email notifications in plain text:

  1. Open your form's notifications.
  2. At the bottom of the My Inbox box, click Customize Notification Email.
  3. Click Send Plain Text.
  4. Click Done.
  5. Click Save.
Turning Off Email Notifications

To turn off email notifications:

  1. Open your form's notifications.
  2. Delete your email address.
  3. Click Save.
Not Receiving Email Notifications

First, check your spam or junk folders. If you don't see the notification email, it's possible that it was blocked by a filter or firewall.

To make sure Wufoo emails don't get blocked:

  1. Add no-reply@wufoo.com and bounces@bounces.wufoo.com to your email's safe senders list.
  2. Add our sender domains and IP addresses to the allowlist in your email account (or pass this along to your IT Team).
Update our domains and IP addresses to keep getting emails! Our email domains and IP addresses are changing, and we don’t want you to miss a thing—like password resets, entry notifications, and more. Even if you’ve added us in the past, you’ll need to add our new info.
Set up email notifications when someone submits your form (new entries) or when a user in your Wufoo account adds a comment to an entry (new comments).
