What Happened to My Purchase Order Emails From QuickBooks?
Ask the Accountant…
Question: After I emailed a purchase order to a supplier in QB Premier, I used to see a message telling me that it had been emailed. I don’t see that anymore. What happened?
Answer: You are probably talking about a pop-up message that said: “QuickBooks sent the email to your email application. Your email application will send it to the recipient.”
It’s a double-check to you that QB has indeed sent out the email. It is likely that you inadvertently checked the box within the pop-up message that says, “Do not display this message in the future.”
If you would like the messages to appear again, make the following adjustment:
Edit - Preferences - General - Click “Bring Back All One-Time Messages” - Restart QB
The messages should start reappearing again.
