What is a Soft Bounce?

A Soft bounce is an intermittent, short-term occurrence. One example might be the recipient’s email server may possibly be for the moment overloaded or offline; the receiver could possibly be over their inbox limit or it could possibly be a short challenge with the remote server preferences.


The most common kind of ‘soft’ bounce known is ‘Blocked Due to Content’ – which means it was captured in a junk e-mail filter.
