Soft bounces report


The Soft bounces report lists all of the contacts that couldn't be delivered to due to a soft bounce

The soft bounce threshold controls the number of times an email is allowed to bounce before being unsubscribed, and it's set under Contacts > Suppressed contacts > Bounce settings.

Soft bouncing can be a temporary issue (for instance, when a full mailbox gets cleared down) and sending to these email addresses later on may well succeed.
