Automated bounce handling install guide

This feature is not recommended to clean your old lists! You run the risk of being blacklisted. Please use BriteVerify (our favorite one) or DataValidation.

In our Premium version, we offer the possibility to handle bounced emails automatically. Very practical when your lists are over 2000 subscribers.

The rules you can apply

This screenshot above is fairly explanatory. There are 4 case scenarios, and the last one is the wild card:

  1. When mailbox is full (after 3 tries)
  2. When mailbox is not available
  3. When you need to confirm you’re a human being, forward to…
  4. When you are flagged as a spammer forward the bounced message to…
  5. When the bounce is weird and we’re not sure what to do, forward to…

Requirements for the bounce address

  1. it has to be on the same domain as the sender’s address. If you’re sending from info@mydomain.com, then your bounce could be bounce@mydomain.com
  2. the bounce address is dedicated solely to bounces, nothing else

Some hosts require the bounce address (Return-Path header) to be the same as the From address.
