Notifications to Company Managed Distribution Lists

edited 12/09/19 in Smartsheet Basics

Now that smartsheet permits emails to outside users my ability to use the sheets has greatly increased! Unfortunately I am running into an issue when trying to send emails to company generated distribution lists. I am not sure if it a security feature my company has or an issue with smartsheet.

Our company distribution lists have an associated email to send emails to the entire group. It would look something like: [email protected] In theory these emails should come through, but so far all tests have not gone through to the members of the list.

Has anyone seen this issue? And is there a work around?

*NOTE: I have set my alert settings to send to "all emails"*

    Hi all,

    It seems for us it was an issue on the back end of our company's IT. I would reach out to your local IT to see if they are blocking notifications from smartsheet email addresses. It took us a really long time to figure it out, but now it works seamlessly (unless one person on that email DL "unsubscribes" from the notification, that is a whole other issue).

    Can I suggest you try using Smartsheet Groups instead? 

    Not sure why you are having this issue but the Groups solution may work more easily? 

    Hope that helps

  • I am having this same problem. I have considered a smartsheet group but then I am maintaining 2 groups, one on our mail server and one in smartsheet. 

     

    Any resolution to this?

     

    Thanks!

  • Same thing here.


    I tried duplicating the notification, but still would not allow me to input the DL that unsubscribed.

    I'm experiencing the same issue. Has there been a fix or alternative solution for this?

  • I may have this same issue. All single emails work. Dist does not, but I seem to remember that I accidentually used adistro list and it did work. So let me try to retrace my steps
