I would like to ensure the users are receiving the notification emails as intended. I have added myself to the list and successfully receive emails, which means the notification trigger is working. However, there is no proof that other intended recipients have got it ...
I did some search on the forum and unfortunately there is no way of tracking history.
Is there a way to display the list of recipients in the To / CC field?
So I do
Dear [users to be notified], [other user to be notified]
here is your .....
So I just use the same fields that are used for the recipient list in the email body. Then everyone know who else received the email.
If you register your email domain with QuickBase, like @mycompany.com ( you can't register like @gmail), then you can set Advanced properties of the Notification to set the FROM address and can set that to be from a particular user or better yet from the user in the field [Last Modified by].
Then if there is a bad email bounceback, rather than going to firstname.lastname@example.org and being lost in cyberspace, it will bounce back to the [Last Modified by like this.
The following message to <email@example.com> was undeliverable.
The reason for the problem:
5.1.2 - Bad destination host 'DNS Hard Error looking up xxx.yyy (MX): NXDomain'
Status: 5.0.0 (permanent failure)
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 5.1.2 - Bad destination host 'DNS Hard Error looking up xxx.yyy (MX): NXDomain' (delivery attempts: 0)
