Why am I getting the 'Failure' status after sending an envelope?

Issue

A envelope you sent shows a status of Failure in the Manage section and the signer has not received the signing notification.

Cause

This may be due to an incorrect recipient email address or an error from an email provider.

Solution

First, ensure that the email address you're sending to was entered correctly and is valid. An invalid email address will always bounce and cause this error.

You can modify an invalid email address using the Correct feature. For more information on this feature, please review this guide


If the email address is valid, in the Manage section locate the bounced envelope, click the down arrow next to Correct, and click Resend to resend the signing notification. If you're viewing the envelope's detail page resend the envelope notification using the Resend feature.
