This blog post provides an overview of the different statuses that can be assigned to an email after it has been sent. The statuses are “Delivered,” “Bounced,” “Blocked,” and “Deferred.” “Delivered” means the email was successfully delivered to the recipient’s inbox. “Bounced” refers to an email that could not be delivered due to a hard bounce, such as an invalid email address, or a soft bounce, such as a full inbox. “Blocked” emails are those the recipient’s email provider blocks due to suspected spam or malicious content. “Deferred” emails are those that are temporarily delayed by the recipient’s email server but may still be delivered at a later time.
