Bounce Emails

We have noticed recently that we're not seeing the bounced email replies when sending out a campaign. We don't send out huge mailings so we use active email accounts to send and normally see the bounces come into the sender's email.  I double checked that our recent mailings did in fact have bounces, which they do.  I also double checked with our IT department and they said they don't see any bounces hitting our exchange server from MyEmma mailings at all. 

Has anyone else run into this?

Hey there -- It's possible those bounce back go through the same feedback loop process as out of office replies (like when you see “mailer daemon” replies for personal emails). We include a hidden line in your email header that reads something like, "This is a bulk email. No need to reply with autoresponders." Most receiving servers pay attention to that and don't bother delivering out-of-office replies, but some don't, so you may have received some of those in the past. You can read more about that here!
