A Quick Guide To Email Deliverability Terminology

Some of the terminology used in the table above may be unknown to you. Here’s a quick breakdown of what some of the terms mean.

  • Soft Bounce – An undelivered email. This can happen when the recipient’s email inbox is full, the email server is down or the email itself was too large for the recipient’s inbox.
  • Pass Ping – The email address was tested without sending an email.
  • Catch-All – This is when an email that makes it to the receiving email server and doesn’t bounce back. These emails are “caught” by the receiving email server and may “roll up” certain emails or is still receiving emails for addresses for employees that have left the company. For example, a “roll up” could be several email addresses like sales@, ops@, and those email addresses are rolled up to info@.

Note: If you want to target CXOs (C-Suite executives) with the highest probability of establishing contact, you’d want to use AAA scored records from our database (See the gold colored cell in the table above).
