Process Bounces

Each time you send out a message to a substantial number of users, you should use 'Process Bounces' to check for bounced messages. If you don't see any bounces right away, check again in a few days, as bounced messages may take a while to arrive.

If you do have bounces, do not remove them till a few days later. Otherwise the system will not be able to identify the consecutive bounces (bounces in a row) for a given user's email address.

You can also create rules for bounces. To learn more about this, please see Advanced Bounce Handling.

Using a cron job to process bounces

If you have many bounces you can run a scheduler -like a cron job- to process bounces, instead of having to do this manually. In that case you should disable manual processing of bounces in the config.php file:

This code in config.php

# set this to 0, if you set up a cron to download bounces regularly by using the
# commandline option. If this is 0, users cannot run the page from the web
# frontend. Read README.commandline to find out how to set it up on the
# commandline
