Nintex workflow sends spam emails to the first Sharepoint group on the site. We are suspecting, when the workflow is unable to resolve a email id, it sends email to the first sharepoint group listed on the sharepoint site on which nintex workflow is running.
Does the Nintex workflow queues email request in case of any error?
Any suggestion would be highly appreciable.

Notifications can be turned off by selecting No for Send notifications to the workflow initiator and leaving the Specify other email addresses that will receive the notifications text field empty.
