Is an out of office auto-reply considered a bounce in email marketing?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

No, an out-of-office response would not be considered a bounce-back. Bounce backs are delivery failures, which could be caused by a typo, incorrect email address, refused mail……things along those lines. These generally come with a message explaining why they were bounced back, as well as an error code (which you can look up to confirm the cause)

I would say triggering of spammy title and not working properly on your subject lines. I am quite there was a list shared by someone here about words which shoutout as spam.

    Not really because the email has been received by the destination, it is just informing the sender that the recipient is currently unavailable for a reply at that time.

    which email client are you using, if it is lotus notes, probably, email quota might be a factor.

    No way, it's just a setting set by the receiver to deliver a reply. It is not related to bouncing of emails.
