Results

Total Verified Email Results – This field displays the total number of Verified Email Results. The total number of Verified Email Results does not equal the total amount of emails sent. When an email is sent using Velocify™ it should get a message back from the recipients email server. However, the recipients email server does not always send a message back. The number of Total Verified Email Results does not refer to the total number of emails sent; it refers to the total number of emails sent which got a return message of some kind from the recipients email server.

Emails Delivered - This field displays the total number of emails that were successfully delivered.

Emails Rejected - This field displays the total number of emails that were not delivered. The number in this field is a total that includes emails that Hard Bounced, Soft Bounced, Unknown User, or were not delivered for another reason.  The value in this field is a clickable link. Click the link to get more data on these rejected emails.  More on this in the next section of this article.

Hard Bounces - A hard bounce is an e-mail that has not been delivered. It has bounced back to the sender without having been accepted by the recipient's mail server. It will generally be returned with the message; “host unknown”  or “recipient unknown.” This field displays the total number of hard bounces. Note that hard bounces include unknown users. When an email hard bounces, the email status is changed to Disabled, and no more emails can be sent to this address. The value in this field is a clickable link. Click the link to get more data on these hard bounces. More on this in the next section of this article.

Unknown Users - This field displays the total number of emails that hard bounced due to an email address that is not real. The value in this field is a clickable link. Click the link to get more data on these unknown users.  More on this in the next section of this article.

Soft Bounces - A soft bounce is an email that has not been delivered. It has been accepted by the recipients mail server, but not by the recipients inbox. Examples of when soft bounces occur include when the recipients inbox is full, or the message contains an attachment that is too large. When an email soft bounces, the email status remains enabled. After three consecutive soft bounces, the email’s status will change to Disabled, and no more emails can be sent to this address.  This field displays the total number of emails that soft bounced. The value in this field is a clickable link. Click the link to get more data on these soft bounces.  More on this in the next section of this article.
