Updating a contact's subscription status or hard bounceback status
You can update a contact's subscription settings (global subscription or email group) or reset a hard bounceback status using the contact record. When a Oracle Eloqua receives a hard bounceback, the contact's email address is marked as invalid and you can no longer send emails to the contact.
Warning: Be sure to verify that an email address is valid before resetting the bounceback status. Continuing to send emails to hard bouncebacks can impact your sender reputation and overall deliverability. Changing the bounceback should always be done with caution.
If you need to update a group of contacts, refer to the following topics instead:
