What do I do if the registrant submits an erroneous email address?
What does an erroneous-email-address bounced email message look like?
A bounced email message that was undeliverable because there was an error in the email address normally includes 2 pieces of information:
- The email address that failed delivery
- The reason it failed - there are many forms of this message: Unrouteable address, Recipient unknown, No such address on this server, etc
THE FIX: Obtain the correct address and change the registrant's record
There are 2 main reasons email addresses contain typos:
- The registrant accidentally inserted a blank or some other character that is not allowed in an email address
- The registrant merely mispelled his/her email address
In either case, if you want to correct the email address, you should call, or otherwise contact the registrant and obtain the correct email address verbally; then edit their record and change it using the Registrant List - How do I edit a registrant's record?
