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

Click on the link that correlates with your email provider to learn how to allowlist email addresses in your email account:

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!
