Issue/Introduction

Emails from Symantec VIP for password reset requests, account alerts and notifications, new account enrollments, administrator creation, etc. not being received. 

Cause

Many email providers protect your email by making sure the messages you send and receive are authenticated. Unauthenticated messages might be sent to spam or blocked altogether by the email provider. 

Resolution

For admin password reset requests, a VIP Administrator can verify the email was sent from VIP:

From VIP Manager, click the Reports tab, then click View Audit Reports. Select a time frame, select action Login, leave Administrator First or Last Name blank, then click Search. All password reset requests and logins are displayed. 

Is it affecting a single user or multiple users?

Ask other admins with an email address on the same domain to attempt a password reset. If isolated to a single user, check SPAM\JUNK folders. Email postmasters can check email server logs to verify if delivered to the end-user. If multiple users are affected, the following information is provided for the Postmaster:

Whitelisting Symantec VIP Service:

  • Add [email protected] to the Approved Sender list and symantec.com to the safe domain list. 
  • Add 149.72.223.57 to the allowed client IP list. 
  • End-users should check their SPAM\JUNK folders and add [email protected] to their safe sender list.

Additional email details:

from:  [email protected] 
client-ip =149.72.223.57
domain =symantec.com 
from = symantec.com


Important: If your email server responds to emails from [email protected] with a 553 or 550 response code (email "do-not-exist/invalid/inactive"), the VIP Service email gateway will add the email address to a Suppression List and no future emails will be sent. VIP Administrators will still see email sent to [email protected] message in the browser when requesting a temp password. Postmasters can confirm if there is any trace of the emails from [email protected] in the logs. If there is no trace, first resolve the source of the 553 or 550 response. Then open a VIP support ticket and include your VIP Jhash, sample email addresses, and timestamps of when the password request was submitted. The VIP support team will verify (and remove) the suppression. 

If emails are not received to your email servers, please contact Symantec VIP support.
