Email Bounce Rates: Shifting Focus Away From Failure

Oh, the elusive email bounce rate, the bane of email marketers everywhere. Everyone is eager to crack the code of email bounces and say what the ideal rate should be for any given sender.

When someone says, “yeah, I’ve got about ten million people on my list. I bought it off the internet a few years ago from a guy named Joe, and…” that raises some red flags.
