1. Requirements.

Customer will follow these guidelines when sending emails using Mailzy:

1a – Bounce and complaint rates to remain within these thresholds:

A bounce occurs when an email is sent to an address that doesn't exist. A complaint occurs when a recipient identifies an email that you sent as spam. Email providers interpret a high bounce or complaint rate as a sign that a sender isn't properly managing their recipient list, and that the sender might be sending unsolicited email.
