For more information on bulk and junk email folders, check with your mail administrator or your email program's Help files.


Turn off spam blockers

Adobe's email system does not work with some anti-spam software, such as those that use autoresponse or challenge methods to block unwanted email. Temporarily disable the software and wait for the email to arrive.

If your organization has a spam appliance or application, ensure that it is configured to allow email from Adobe and Amazon Web Services.


On many email servers, if you marked an email from Adobe as spam, all future Adobe emails automatically direct to your spam folder.

Check your email security settings

Sometimes, a High security setting for your email blocks email messages from Adobe. Adjust your setting to Medium or Medium-High.

Check with your email administrator

If you have not received the email from Adobe, check with your mail administrator about your server's available disk space; it could be full. It's also possible that your email administrator should add Adobe's mail server to your company's whitelists, using the following IP addresses and subnets:
