Error when submitting a WHD client ticket

Updated December 4, 2017


When a client user submits a Web Help Desk ticket, the following error displays in the Client user interface:

We're sorry, your e-mail address was not recognized by the help desk, so your request for support could not be submitted


All WHD versions


  • The email received by the Incoming Mail Account does not match a Client or Tech account
  • The Client Can Create Account option at Setup > Clients > Options is set to Only if the Client's e-mail matches an Accepted Domain, and the sender's e-mail does not match an accepted domain.


Make sure that the sender has a client or tech account in Web Help Desk with an e-mail address that matches the accepted domain.
