An email bounce describes the non-delivery of your email message. There are two different types of bounced emails.
Hard bounce indicates a permanent delivery issue to an address. It means that the email address is invalid and the email cannot reach the recipient’s mail server. Sender.net excludes hard bounce emails from any further campaigns automatically. The most common reasons for a hard bounce could be:
- A domain name does not exist or is not active anymore.
- Recipient’s email address does not exist.
- The receiver’s mailbox is full.
- The mailbox is incorrectly configured.
- Mailbox is inactive.
- The recipient email server is down or offline.
- An email message is too large.
- The domain name does not exist.
- Email messages blocked due to content.
- Email message does not meet the recipient server’s policies.
- Email message does not meet the recipient server’s anti-spam or anti-virus requirements.
- Email message does not meet the recipient server’s sender requirements.
