We are on ERP100 VERSION 18.104.22.168 We have been using Paperless office to send our invoices to our dealers. I am hearing from a few customers (about 10) that the transmissions we are sending are not consistently getting through. I am religiously checking the PAPERLESS VIEWER for errors. Everything looks fine. I have a "Y" on the "sent" column for the past month.
We have also added a mailbox a year ago to monitor what bounces back due to bad emails or disconnects. For these 10 customers, I do not see bounce backs, yet the customers still claim, that they are not getting everything.
These are not customers who are making excuses as to why an invoice isn't paid. These are good accounts that review their statements and keep needing to request invoices that on our side appear to have been sent properly through the paperless system.
Anything else I can check? Anyone else running into an intermittent success rate? Any help is greatly appreciated. Baffled here....
