Soft Bounce

Comments are off

Email sent to an active (live) Email address but which is turned away before being delivered. Often, the problem is temporary — the server is down or the recipient’s mailbox is over quota. The Email might be held at the recipient’s server and delivered later, or the sender’s Email program may attempt to deliver it again. Soft-bounce reports are not always accurate because they don’t report all soft bounces or the actual reason for the bounce.
