Re: What does Blocked mean?

Hello @JenniferH76,


That's a great question! The Blocked bounce status means  the ISP has decided not to deliver it, probably because it thought the email was spam. The ISP might be concerned about something in the email, or it rejects email from large senders (like Constant Contact). Here's a guide on the other bounce statuses as well as how to manage them.
