Many issues dealing with emailing users (candidates, applicants, testers, admins, etc.) can be investigated and troubleshot within the Email Management tool. Email Management, found at both Community and Project levels, contains all the email templates separated by type, allows you to create new templates, and includes a Log to filter for specific sends and recipients. 

Below are answers to common questions and Email Management best practices.
