I created a SharePoint Alert on a custom list which sends out notifications Immediately for all the changes.

  • Outbound Email settings are configured in central administration.
  • Custom notifications are also working, which are sent out using workflows.

Did anyone face this issue?

  • Did it worked previously..?If so wait at least 15 min... Feb 9, 2018 at 14:45

    Alright, If your waited for 15 min and If you are in on-prem and have access to Central Admin check the "ImmediateAlert" Timer job and it status... Feb 9, 2018 at 14:47

SharePoint sends SPAlerts via scheduled TimerJobs

  • Immediate Alerts
  • Daily Alerts
  • Weekly Alerts

Since you ensured Outbound Email settings is already configured in central admin. And for Immediate Alerts wait for 15 min and check you received email if not check the above Job status and interval.
