I'm an e-bill subscriber but received a paper bill in the mail stating that my e-bill was 'undeliverable'.
The above scenario indicates that we tried to deliver your e-bill to your email address without success. When an e-bill is undeliverable, we automatically send a paper bill and make continued attempts to deliver your e-bill. After three failed delivery attempts, you will automatically be unsubscribed from our e-bill service. You may resubscribe at any time after correcting any email address errors.
If the email address you provided when subscribing to e-bill is valid (correct with no typos), but you received a paper bill in the mail, it may be due to the following reason(s):
- Your mailbox is full
- Unknown host (domain lookup failed) – This can happen when an ISP changes their name (i.e. attbi.com to comcast.com)
- E-bill email was blocked by your spam filter
- Server is down
- Connection timed out
