Bounced Spectrum Email Accounts Marked as Other

Since the beginning of July, when Spectrum added some security protocols, I have had several roadrunner accounts bounce and deleted (not by us).

Worked with Tier 2 Tech Support. Thought issue was resolved after a lengthy go round about them unsubscribing (when they did not and no notification sent from Constant Contact). The addresses were just deleted and could not be set up by us. Tech Support was able to reactivate the accounts on the back end.

This past weekend, with a new campaign, 3 of the 10 from the previous issue bounced again. The reason given is OTHER. This does not help to trouble shoot the issue. Sent them a test of the email and they received it without an issue.

Is there any way to know what specifically the OTHER message is?

Re: Bounced Spectrum Email Accounts Marked as Other

Hello @DeniseS107 ,

 

Unfortunately, no it isn't possible. When an email is sent in general, receiving email clients or ISPs will respond with a code that effectively tells the sending system "this couldn't be delivered because of X." Generally that's a code that's commonly recognized - the email address doesn't exist, the domain doesn't exist, the receiver blocked the email, etc. Other means it was a random code (or no code at all), which the translates into our reporting as simply "other."

Hello @DeniseS107 ,

 

It appears the affected domain of those contacts is a smaller one that may have certain restrictions on what types of emails can be sent to them. My suggestion would be to work with the domain itself to see if you can get your emails marked as safe to be sent. Feel free to refer to this article if you choose to work with them. Otherwise you can also try working with the contacts to see if they'd be able to get you safelisted.

 

Otherwise, you could call our Deliverability team, to see if they have any additional insight or guidance they'd be able to provide for you regarding those addresses.

Thank you, however it does not answer my question. The question is: Is there any way to know what specifically the OTHER message is?
