What Is A Bounce Back Email Message?
When you receive a bounce back message it means that the email server could not send out your email for some reason. The email server sends you back a notice, called a bounce back message, that informs you that there was an error when it tried to send your email. Essentially, our server is "bouncing" the email back to you because it could not be forwarded to the recipient.
Why Did I Get A Bounce Message?
There are a myriad of reasons for why an email is bounced. Follow the process below to determine why your email may have bounced.
- First, almost all bounce back messages will have a reason stated for why the email could not be delivered. Check the bounce back email and see if there is a reason or an error number listed. If you see an error 554 it means that the email is being rejected as spam. Please report the incident via an email or support ticket. Here are some other error codes you might see, and what they mean:
- 450 The person you are sending to has a full mailbox. Try again later.
