I have a case Assignment rule set up to add cases to a queue.

I have set up the queue with members and checked the 'send notification email', but when I create a case, the case is assigned to the queue but email notification is not sent.

I made sure the deliverability in email administration is 'all emails'.

  • Are you in a sandbox environment? If so, the email alerts are disabled except for system messages, so none of your notifications would be sent/received until you re-enable this option.

When you add an entry to your case assignment rules, there is a field that says "Email Template", if that field remains empty, the members of the queue will not receive any notification, you must choose an email template.

P.S. Sorry for my writing in English, it's not my native language

You need to check the checkbox in queue "Send Email to Members" as well as the checkbox in assignment rule "Email", by selecting an Email Template in your assignment rule.

It happened with me also. I was setting up the Lead assignment rule. and queue is set-up and send email to members check box is checked but no emails were triggered but when I added "Email template" in lead rules & Email check box is checked for that rule and then I started receiving email. Hope this helps to you also.

So this means that if we add Email template to assignment rule then and only then Email alerts goes.

Few cases which I encounter that you should use a valid email address in the environment if the emails address are not valid for that user then they never receives an email.
