KB-1543 Emails from Appian Cloud not delivered to target destination due to Proofpoint filter


Emails sent from Appian Cloud sites are not delivered to their destination when Proofpoint is used as an email spam filtering service.


Proofpoint may have filtered the IPs that the Appian mail server uses to send emails.


Appian Cloud e-mails are sent with a valid SPF record, and customers need to work with ProofPoint to authorize the SPF record for Appian Cloud as a valid sender in their filtering rules.

Customers can validate Appian Cloud emails are originating from an authorized SMTP server. Review the Appian Cloud FAQs for more details.
