    Hi @john john ,

    Please perform the following troubleshooting:

    1.Check whether the SharePoint site has the Publishing feature turned on



    2.If the SharePoint site has Publishing feature enabled, check to see if this page is published. If the page is in an unpublished state, you will not receive an email notification.

    Hello, any updates on this? I'm facing the same issue.
    If you configure your alert to "All Changes" you receive an email when the page is modified or deleted, but not when a new page is added.
    SharePoint publishing features are not activated in the site, this is really weird behavior and I'm not sure if is standard behavior or an issue.

    Thanks for the update!
