Bounces - Do you know what to do with bounced email?
Having people report bounce back emails is frustrating and time consuming. The first thing to try when you get a report is to check that your mail server isn’t on a spam blacklist. An easy way to check this is via MX Toolbox.
Figure: Enter the domain to check Figure: Then select "Blacklist Check" Figure: Getting a zero is good, so you know that you are not blacklisted… so Step 1 is good Next step check that you have primary and secondary (and even better tertiary) MX records setup and working. Figure: Seeing at least 2 MX records is good... Run an SMTP Test to test mail servers. So Step 2 is good If success on both steps the error is most likely on the senders side. Send them the an email to check their mail settings.
