Soft bounces: Email that has bounced back to the sender undelivered after it has been accepted by the recipient's mail server.

 

Technical failures: Technical failures are failures of the delivery of email due to problems on the receiving equipment or infrastructure, such as DNS resolution issues, connection timeouts, greylisting, or server errors due to non-user specific disk space problems.

 

Uncategorized failures: A failure that doesn't easily fit into one of the other categories.

 

Invalid Users: For some reason, the email addresses are not legitimate ones (this is often caused by spelling errors).

 

Content Blocks: Content blocks are responses that indicate that the message is rejected for issues detected by a content filter. The filter may conclude that your message contains spam-like content, non-RFC compliant content, blacklisted URLs in the content, etc

 

Mailstream blocks: You can learn more about mail stream blocks here.

 

End User complaints: Spam complaints made about the mailing.

 

Recipients remaining: The number of recipients for a mailing that are current pending in the Active Recipients queue. These users may not have been attempted yet, could be in retry due to transient delivery failures, or could be inactive due to a block by the destination ISP.
