Hard Bounce vs. Soft Bounce?

    Looking in the bounces.php script, I see you define a hard bounce as three soft bounces. But does Amazon send a different SNS for a soft bounce vs. a hard bounce? After reading this:

    It seems they manage the soft bounces themselves, and will notify with a hard bounce when it finally gives up.

    So does your bounce script really need to process the soft bounces?

    Hi Steve,

    Amazon's documentation provide responses for both hard and soft bounces. So I made sure I handle both in Sendy. I only read about this blog post later. But I thought I'd just leave soft bounce handling alone, there can never be too many checks when it comes to bounce handling.

    Thanks.

    Ben
