What to do if a user isn’t receiving the notification emails

Email can be tricky, and sometimes you will find that a user is not receiving the notifications and invitations email that are being sent from Filecamp. This could be due to many reasons: it has been quarantined by their email server, caught in a spam filter, accidentally deleted, etc.

If it is invitations and sharing messages you can try and send the links to them via your default email client instead.

Administrators can set up notifications for other users by using the Log in as another user option.

Please note that you cannot trigger email notifications to yourself for actions you triggered.
