Bounce Management

Specify global settings for bounce handling here. Bounce Management

Deactivation Threshold

„Define the threshold for consecutive events after which a contact may no longer be contacted“. There are hard bounces (generally/ permanently non-deliverable) and soft bounces (temporarily non-deliverable, chance for deliverability still exists).
Hardbounces
In the first selection you should stay with the default selection „CSA compliant“ at any rate in order not to endanger our and your reputation. Please change this value only after consultation with our delivery management! The Certified Senders Alliance (CSA) only allows 3 consecutive hardbounces before delivery attempts to the respective contact must be terminated. This is why the second selection only offers the values 1, 2 or 3 for consecutive hardbounces. However the value „custom“ in the first selection allows values between 1 and 10.
Softbounces
Following values are possible here:
  • deactivated: delivery attempts will be continued for contacts causing softbounces, disregarding the number of consecutive softbounces
  • 1-10 consecutive softbounces: the system will make 1-10 delivery attempts, depending on the selected value. After this no further delivery attempts will be made

Webhooks

A webhook in web development is a method of augmenting or altering the behavior of a web page, or web application, with custom callbacks. In the context of using Maileon this basically means: You can call an external URL (webhook) for selected system contact events simultaneously to their automatic processing in the system. If this call can be interpreted by an external system (e.g. a CRM) you can set aside contact synchronization in many cases. More detailed information about the subject can be found here. Please click the „Plus“ symbol or the button „create new Webhook“ to open the webhook wizard. You can currently choose from 3 contact events: DOI confirmation, bounce or unsubscribe: Create Webhook Now please enter the necessary information (HTTP POST URL, URL parameters and the additional JSON information to be transferred): Create Webhook 2 Then click „create webhook“ to finalize.
