Very few returned emails lately!

Over the last month, returned emails from email broadcasts or calendar notifications that I have sent have almost completely disappeared from my mail inbox after a send. Whereas before I would receive around 30-50+ bounced email notices for everything I sent out I am now only receiving two or three.

Has anyone else noticed this? I'm trying to figure out if this has something to do with my email account provider or if the church has made some changes to the LUWS email system. Alas, it isn't due to the fact that members have corrected their outdated email addresses; they are all still wrong unfortunately.

Thanks for your input.

As someone who works in the email industry for a living, I'd hope that the reason you don't see the bounce emails anymore is that the sending system tracked the bounces and blocked sending to the bounced addresses after a certain threshold. To not do so would be asking for trouble when it comes to getting emails out.

Perhaps some action from this thread was taken recently:

Although that is a year ago...
