What is a Soft Bounce?

A Soft bounce is an intermittent, short-term occurrence.

Here are a few examples of why a Soft Bounce may occur: The recipient’s email server may be overloaded or offline, the recipient could be over their inbox limit or it could 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.
