Soft bounces are emails that have been temporarily rejected and bounce for various reasons, generally due to an issue on the recipient server side.
The following scenarios are identified as a soft bounce in Ometria:
- Mailbox full
- DNS failure
Soft bounces are safe to resend and may get delivered on the next try.
Soft bounce handling
If a contact’s emails soft bounce frequently, they may no longer be a ‘good’ contact.
For this reason, Ometria adds contacts to your suppression list after they return three soft bounces within two months.
