Frequently Asked Questions

This can be due to the following reasons:

  • A username and password reset
  • An email service provider outage
  • An expired API token
  • A change in your email settings that affects APIs

The fix for this is simply disconnecting your integrated email and re-connecting!

This could be caused by a number of settings outside of Shape. DMARC settings controlled within your email settings are typically the main issue when it comes to email deliverability.
