This occurs due to an email server security measure, which uses spam filters to prevent unwanted content from frequently reaching their users' inboxes.
If your campaign has been marked as spam, you must review it in order to validate some critical points that may have resulted in this classification. Learn more in this article: Why was my email marked as spam?
To protect the integrity of your domain and ensure good deliverability rates, RD Station Marketing performs a Sample Test.
Whenever you launch an email campaign, a random sample from the list is selected (variable percentage) and the campaign is first sent to these contacts in order to evaluate the result. If this first partial delivery exceeds the acceptable limit of Hard Bounces (3% of your lead base) your campaign will be suspended.

A lead is registered as a Soft Bounce when the server, for some temporary reason, rejects the email sent by RD Station Marketing with its domain as the sender.
Hard Bounces, on the other hand, occur for two possible reasons:
- The lead's email address does not exist or was typed incorrectly.
- The lead's email server has blocked the receipt of your emails.
Check the other reasons and learn how to prevent this from happening in the article What are Soft and Hard Bounces?
Dedicated IP addresses are recommended for companies that must send a high monthly volume of emails. This protects the domain's reputation and avoids having to compete with the IP addresses of other RD Station Marketing customers.
