Bounced Messages

After you send an email to your list, you may receive several bounce back messages indicating something is wrong with one or more recipients' addresses. This indicates that your email has gone out to the group, but has been returned by a few accounts, usually because of a problem with incorrect or outdated email addresses, or a full inbox on the part of the receiver.

While the system checks for obvious email address form when adding members, it can not detect incorrect or obsolete information.

 

Note:  It is common to receive several bounces the first time a mailing list is used. You can minimize this by carefully reviewing the membership list before posting and then immediately correct problems if bounce backs occur.

To correct an email address, you will first need to delete the old or incorrect address and then add back the corrected one. See Deleting Members and Adding Members for more information on how to do this.

Note:  Consider the source of your list email addresses. You may need to spend a great deal of time fixing email addresses with information collected from sources other than Banner.
