The issue might be caused by low-quality contacts with a lot of outdated or incorrect emails that can hurt your domain reputation and negatively affect your future sequences. We strongly recommend that you validate your contact lists before launching a sequence. You may use our validation service or any other service you prefer:
Please also note that in Reply we have a minimum requirement for an acceptable email bounce rate. If a new sequence reaches a 15% bounce rate or an existing one has a 25% bounce rate, such a sequence stops sending the first step to contacts but continues sending follow-ups. We will notify you of sequences that have reached half or full bounce quota so that you can prevent sequence suspension.
