Bounces API

An email is considered bounced when the message is undeliverable and then returned to the server that sent it. Bounced emails can be either permanent or temporary failures to deliver the message.

For more information, see our Bounces documentation.

You can also manage bounced emails from the Suppression settings menu in the Twilio SendGrid App.

Delete bounces

DELETE /v3/suppression/bounces

Base url: https://api.sendgrid.com

This endpoint allows you to delete all emails on your bounces list.

There are two options for deleting bounced emails:

  1. You can delete all bounced emails by setting delete_all to true in the request body.
  2. You can delete a selection of bounced emails by specifying the email addresses in the emails array of the request body.

WARNING: You can not have both emails and delete_all set.
