I deleted a flow, but gmail still tries to forward email to the non-existent flow address, resulting in this error: MAIL-RECEIVER 410: Recipient no longer available. The flowdock address is not listed in my gmail forwarding settings, so I don't know how to disable it.
Hey Jenny, it sounds like Gmail is still trying to forward email to that flow, as there's nothing on the Flowdock side that would cause Gmail to send mail to it - as far as I know of anyway!
I would probably check Gmail again and/or check different accounts, maybe? You might try disabling forwarding altogether, not just the one address. Here's how:
Otherwise, could the messages be coming from a different account or something? Just spitballing here. Also, can you tell when the original message (on that MAIL-RECEIVER 410 message) was sent? Perhaps it was sent awhile ago and it's been retrying?
That's all I got
Hey Jenny, any luck?
I get the 401 message for every single email that comes in to the gmail
account (email@example.com). Forwarding is (and has been) disabled in the
gmail settings, so I'm not sure why this is happening.
Below is a sample email from this morning. Let me know if you have any

This is the mail system at host mx.flowdock.com.
I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.
For further assistance, please send mail to postmaster.
If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
delete your own text from the attached returned message.

is it possible that you have another gmail account called firstname.lastname@example.org ? If yes, please can you check the forwarding settings of that account? I believe, that email was intended for the account I mentioned.
We never set up an account for email@example.com, and none of
our other accounts are set to forward to it.
I sent a test email to the account and got the following response:
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:
Technical details of permanent failure:
Google tried to deliver your message, but it was rejected by the server for
the recipient domain ted.comby aspmx.l.google.com. .
The error that the other server returned was:

mmmmh. The thing is, we are only on the receiving end here. The setup to forward this emails to firstname.lastname@example.org has not been done on our end, and we have no direct insight in how this was done.
It sounds, as if there was some kind of script or integration setup for this flow, that used the email for posting. This will have been done on your end, so you might need to check with the other users of this flow.
I'm sorry, that I could not be of more direct assistance.
