XF 1.4 What does bounce handling actually do?

    I've enabled bounce handling on my forums, but I'd be interested to know what it actually does. I very rarely use the bulk e-mail options and I can see that this has an option to exclude members that have e-mail addresses that bounce.

    However, what happens to all of the other e-mails sent from the site - primarily notification/subscription e-mails. Are these put on hold when an e-mail account is detected as invalid?

    It automatically detects messages that bounced, and stops all emails from being sent to the user until their address is updated.

    Thanks, this is the part I wanted to clarify. I read something that seemed to suggest that subscription e-mails etc... were still sent out. It's good to know that all e-mails are stopped from being sent if a user is marked as invalid.
