A recent email had 195 soft bounces, and all were to subscribers with email addresses with AOL.
How come?

Hello SNGA,

Soft bounces usually refer to some temporary issue on the recipients end, such as:

• Full inbox
• Email address temporarily disabled
• Service to busy to accept emails

After a quick check with our Deliverability Manager, he suggested saving the list of bounced AOL contacts and resending the email to that list. If the issue is a temporary one, such as mentioned above, the emails should be delivered.

Otherwise, if you would like to get a more detailed review of the bounces, please contact our support department and provide them with your account username and the name of the campaign that is problematic. They can take a deeper look into the issue and provide you with a more concrete explanation and solution.

I hope this helps!

Is it fairly common that specific (AOL or Comcast) email addresses bounce like this?

I had a 12% bounce rate on a newsletter campaign (normally 1-2%, max) and 61% of those were soft and hard bounces with comcast email addresses.
