Master Contact List Changes

I need some guidance/understanding on if a master list will automatically changed based upon bounces and unsubscribe or do I have to go in and manually remove those contacts from the list?



List = 5K names

Bounces = 500
Unsubscribe  = 100

How do I make it so my new list is 4,400...or does the master list automatically reduce in size to 4,400?


I appreciate the assistance with this question.


Hello @ToastmastersD55,


You will not have to remove your unsubscribes from the list, as they have already been removed. You will need to remove the bounced from your list in order to improve delivery and get to the correct number of contacts. Click here to see how that is done! Thanks.
