So you have an email step in one of your workflows which is set to go out automatically. But for some reason, a new lead comes in and the email doesn't go out. This can happen for a number of different reasons.

Except in extreme edge cases, you can always find out why an email didn't send automatically to a given lead by following these steps.

  1. Go to the page of the lead in question by clicking their link on the lead table.
  2. Look at the tasks in the upper right corner of the page (see screenshot)

3. You should see an email task which is highlighted red.
4. To view the error that prevented the email to send automatically, simply hover your mouse over the red tag that says "Email". 

In the case of this email, it didn't send because this lead doesn't have any email address. Depending on the case, you may get a variety of error messages, some of which may be a little confusing. If you encounter an error message you don't understand, let us know and we'll help explain the issue to you and make sure it gets fixed.
