Unblock Email Addresses

Created on:
Updated on:

If people are not receiving emails sent through Planning Center, a Manager or Editor can unblock those email addresses.

First, ask the person not receiving emails to check their Spam folder to ensure the emails aren't going there. If they're not going to Spam, follow the steps below to unblock the person's email address.

From the person's profile, select the error icon next to the email address.

If you know the email address should work, click Unblock to unblock the email.

If the email address is actually incorrect, you can edit or delete it by clicking the pencil on the profile page.

Undelivered Emails

There are various reasons why an email might have not been delivered. You can see a list of all the emails a person has received through Planning Center from the Communication tab on their profile page. If an email is dropped, open the email and hover over the "Dropped" text to see the specific reason for the email being dropped.

Tip

To learn more about what specific error codes entail, check out Email Error Codes.

If someone mentions they didn't receive an email, or you see that an email failed to be delivered to them, try these things:

  • Check Planning Center People to make sure their email address isn't blocked.

  • Ask the person to add no-reply@planningcenter.com, no-reply@churchcenteronline.com, and no-reply@churchcenter.com to their email address book, which allowlists them.

If neither of these help, contact support by clicking the ? in the top right corner of the app.

Allowlisting Emails

Allowlisting an email tells your email provider to place emails from certain senders into your inbox, rather than marking those emails as spam. Doing this will help you and your congregation avoid the need to go through your spam or junk folder in order to find emails from Planning Center.

Allowlisting may look a little different in each email provider, but the basic process involves adding these three domains to your address book:

After allowlisting those email addresses, Planning Center emails will always show up in your inbox, and these important emails won't slip through the cracks!
