Get Notified When Bounced Subscribers Are Removed From Mailing Lists

SmarterMail automatically removes subscribers from a mailing list if the list receives 3 email address bounces in a row. (This is an automated setting and is not editable.) Domain administrators can set up a notification to be alerted via email or standard SmarterMail notification when a subscriber has been automatically removed because the list received 3 bounce backs from that user.
