Email Notifications Arrive With Delay or Don’t Arrive at All

This page offers suggestions on what to do if you haven’t received an email notification from Wrike.

Situation

You haven’t received an email notification from Wrike and are wondering about the delay.

Things to check:

  • Check your email notifications settings to make sure Wrike emails are turned on.
    1. Click on your profile image in the workspace's upper right-hand corner.
    2. Select “Settings” from the dropdown.
    3. Click "Email Preferences" in the left panel.
    4. Check if the necessary box is checked in the “Task, project, and folder updates” section. 
  • Check if the right email is connected to the right account. If you have several accounts, they all can be linked to different emails. You can also have several emails linked to one account.
    1. Click on your profile image in the workspace's upper right-hand corner.
    2. Select “Settings” from the dropdown.
    3. Click "Email Preferences" in the left panel.
    4. Check if the right email is linked to the right account in the “Notifications settings” section.
  • Check the Spam/Junk folders in your mailbox to see if the email has landed there. If this is the case, make sure that noreply@wrike.com and wrike@wrike.com are whitelisted on the mail filters or the spam control software. You can also try whitelisting this IP range:
    • 160.19.162.0/24, if your account is in our American data center
    • 185.157.64.0/24, if your account is in our European data center 
  • Check if six minutes have passed since you made any changes to the task. Wrike emails are sent 6 minutes after a change is made.
  • Check if you’ve received several emails about changes applied to one and the same task. Any changes that are made to a task within 6 minutes are compiled and sent in the same email.
  • If you haven’t received a Daily To-Do email or a Daily Digest email, check the schedule for these regular notification emails in your email notifications settings and make sure the time zone settings are correct.
  • If you activated the emails “All subtasks in task are completed” or “Next task in queue is ready to be started” in your email notifications settings, note that the 6-minute rule doesn’t apply for this type of notifications. The Wrike Bot will @mention you on a task once an hour. If more than an hour has passed and you still haven’t received an email, check the following:
    • Has someone @mentioned an assignee on a task which is ready to be worked on within an hour after the last predecessor or subtask is completed, canceled, or deferred? If yes, no email notification is sent.
    • Have you opened a parent task before Wrike Bot had a chance to @mention you and let you know that all subtasks were completed, canceled, or deferred? If yes, no email notification is sent.
  • New comments will trigger an email notification only in case of:
    • “Someone @mentions me” or “Someone comments without @mentioning me or my group” are activated in the email notifications settings.
    • You haven’t read the comment and 6 minutes have passed.
    • You have read the comment but didn’t change anything in the task and 6 minutes have passed.

If you have read the comment and some changes or comments were added to the task, no email notification will be sent in 6 minutes.
