Notification Precedence

  1. If you upload a file to any folder that is not in the folder list, it will send a notification to the fallback email addresses (the default)
  2. If you enable a notification on a parent folder, and a subfolder, notifications will be sent for both
  3. The 'to' email addresses is *not* appended to all notifications regardless

Email Reliability

Often web hosting providers do not specialise in email sending, hence reliability of your emails may vary. For example, your provider may send emails from a noreply@ email address which is often flagged as spam. Should you experience issues we suggest using a third party SMTP plugin such as SendGrid or MailGun.
