No reset on Global Bounce flag

New Contributor

I am in the process of managing my bounced contacts and have changed the email for one of them for a new one. While it is a perfectly correct one, the flag for global bounce does not remove, and now says the new email bounced globally (which is 100% false). So I guess there is a problem there : no reset of the flag, and no verification on new emails…

Hi! Because bounces are associated with email addresses and not the contact record itself, you can update your contact's email address and any bounces will not carry over to the new email address. Likewise, if you update your contact's email address to one that has hard bounced in the past, the contact will appear ineligible for email when you make the change.

Well, not so !

 

Let's say abc@def.com has bounced. I change it to uvw@xyz.com (as you see, completely different and checked and valid) : Hubspot now tells me uvw@xyz.com has bounced. Which is false.

 

So there definitely is a problem here !
