A complete tutorial on Email test cases and Email bounces



Manual Test Cases to verify 'Email' Functionality

Verify Inbox functionality:-
1).Verify that total unread email count appears.
2).Verify that a newly received email is displayed as highlighted in the Inbox section.
3).Verify that a newly received email has correctly displayed sender emailId or name, mail subject, header and mail body.

Type of Bounces in Email



When we send an email to an subscriber/user then sometimes it get bounce due to some reason, There are four type of bounces in emails

Email Soft bounce :-

A soft bounce occurs when the email server rejects the email due to a seemingly temporary condition,
such as a full inbox. When that happens, the system retries sending the email to the subscriber every
15 minutes for 72 hours, for up to 288 tries. Only after the system stops attempting to retry does a
subscriber appear in your tracking as bounced.
The 288 re-tries do not count as bounces. Instead, the full count of unsuccessful retries equate to one soft bounce. If the system attempts delivery 288 times and the message bounces each time, the subscriber's status is set to Bounced. If the email is delivered during the 288 tries and the subscriber opens the email, the subscriber's status is set to Active.
Examples of this type of soft bounce that would show up faster include these types of ISP responses:

mailbox would exceed maximum allowed storage
user account is over quota
mailbox is full
mailbox disabled
mailbox temporarily disabled
mailbox disabled, not accepting messages
After Marketing Cloud receives the third soft bounce for a subscriber, their status is set to Held.


Email Hard bounce :-

A hard bounce occurs when the email server rejects the email due to permanent conditions
(this typically results when "user unknown" or "domain not found" errors occur). What happens next depends
on the subscriber's current status. If the subscriber's status was already Active, their status now changes to Bounced.
If the subscriber's status was already Bounced, which indicates they had experienced a bounce previously,
the application treats the bounce differently.


Email Technical bounce :-

A technical bounce, which is considered a type of soft bounce, occurs when the email server rejects the email due
to technical errors, such as a data format or network error. When a subscriber experiences a technical bounce they are
re-tried in the next email send.
This table describes the causes of a technical bounce.
Cause Definition
Server Too Busy Receiving email server is temporarily overwhelmed with delivery attempts from you and other senders
Data Format Error Email is rejected due to formatting or line length errors
Network Error Connection lost or timed our during delivery line length errors


Email block bounce :-

A block bounce, which is considered a type of soft bounce,
occurs when the email server rejects the email due to filter issues,
such as URL blocks, lack of proper authentication,
or the domain or IP address is found on a blacklist utilized by the receiving domain. A subscriber who receives a block bounce is re-tried in the next email send.
This table describes the causes of a block bounce.
Cause Definition
Complaint Your email is blocked due to complaints
Blacklist IP address is on a blacklist
Content Message was filtered due to content
URL Block Emails containing your URLs are blocked
Authentication Message lacks required authentication
