    Email options:
    Bounced Email Address: Filled
    Enable variable bounced email address values: Disabled (not supported by server)
    Enable automated bounced email handler: Enabled
    Conection Type: POP3, SSL
    Soft Bounce Trigger Threshold: 3,3,5

    Create a new XenForo user with fake username email and real domain (gmail.com, hotmail.com...).

    Hard bounce is correctly logged.
    User state remains Awaiting email confirmation.
    Is this right?

    Yes, this is correct. The processing only happens if they're in a valid state. In terms of emails going out, etc, awaiting confirmation is not different than the invalid email state; it mostly just changes the message the user receives. However, it also changes the next step in user progression so changing the user state could lead to bypassing manual account approval.
