Deliverability Report Charts
This section will help you analyze the deliverability and see all the bounces (hard, soft, reject) when sending messages throughout the project in the form of trend charts sectioned by predefined periods of time (the default period displays statistics for the last 7 days).

Deliverability Data Table
Let’s have a detailed look at the various metrics shown in the table below:
|Date||The date and time, when the messages were delivered|
|Messages||The total number of delivered messages on different channels|
|Last week||Change in # of delivered messages within a selected period of time in comparison with the previous similar period|
|Channel||A communication channel is the method through which a message is sent to a contact.|
|Send||The number of emails sent within the selected period of time|
|Delivered||The Delivered status is assigned as soon as the message sent by SmartSender was accepted by the recipient’s ISP server.
|Hard bounces||The time and hard-bounce code received from the ISP. A hard bounce indicates a permanent reason why an email cannot be delivered. Hard bounced email addresses are immediately automatically placed in your account’s BlackList to prevent degradation of your domain reputation.|
|Soft bounces||Soft bounces typically indicate a temporary delivery issue to an address. SmartSender will automatically try to resend the message during 3 days. When the message is delivered the status will change to Delivered.|
|Rejects||The email addresses, which are already in our blacklist and SmartSender rejects to send messages to them.|
|SMS||Send||The number of sent messages within the selected period of time|
|Delivered||The carrier server accepted & queued for this message for delivery.|
|Rejects||The phone number is blacklisted.|
|Fails||Your SMS was queued by our systems but failed to be delivered to the carrier. This includes cases when SmartSender successfully delivered the SMS to the carrier, but the carrier still failed to deliver your message to the destination.|
|Web Push||Send||The number of sent Push notifications within the selected period of time|
|Delivered||The Push notification was delivered.|
|Undelivered||The Push notification wasn’t delivered, invalid token.|
