Bounces are divided into two categories – Soft or Hard.

If a contact bounces softly three times, the status changes to hard bounce. A contact that has received a hard bounce (or three soft ones) will not receive future mailings.

A soft bounce means that the mailing reaches the recipient’s mail server, but haven’t been delivered to the recipient’s inbox. This might be because:

  • their email server is overloaded
  • their inbox is full
  • there is another temporary error

Hard bounce means that the mailing cannot be delivered at all. This might be because:

  • the e-mail address is invalid, expired or have been removed
  • the e-mail address is misspelled
  • the recipient’s mail server is down or not responding

Tip! More information about bounced and bounced contacts can be read in our user guides.
