Mass Mail Reports

ShoutCMS provides statistics and reports for the Mass Emails that you have sent. Reports can be generated for a specific message or for all messages sent over the past 30 days.

The data used for these reports will change over time, as messages are rejected, accepted or opened by their recipients. Depending on the size of your mailing list, you may have to wait several hours or days before the report is final.

    • Soft Bounces: Temporarily rejected by the recipient's mail server (eg. mailbox full, spam filter). These bounces are temporary failures and can be retried in future mailings.
    • Opens and Clicks: Messages that were viewed by the recipient.
