Fix bounced or rejected emails

"The email account that you tried to reach does not exist"

  1. Check for these common mistakes in your recipient's address:
    • Quotation marks
    • Dots at the end of the address
    • Spaces before or after an address
    • Spelling errors
  2. Search your contacts for a different address the same person uses

If you still can't send your message, your recipient's address might not work or exist anymore.

"Message flagged as spam"

Why your message bounced

  • Your message text or links look suspicious
  • You added a large group of recipients to "Cc" or "Bcc"

What you can do

  • Remove links to websites asking for personal information
  • If you're emailing a large group, create a contact group, then email that group
