    P.S : ( entirely off-topic )

    But- can anyone enlighten me as to what a " Bounce List " applies to on a users Profile > Settings page?

    Just curious.

    Thank you in advance for any response :)

    I see you would like to know what a Bouncelist is that you've found in your Settings.

    It's not really off-topic and we definitely don't mind clarifying it more for you.

    Basically to sum it up for you in a short explanation it is pretty much when your Email Host flags emails sent out by our mail servers to your email address via your forms.

    Each Email Hosting Provider has an program that uses scripted filters to do various checks for spam, viruses, malware, spoofing, bulk mail, etc, and the whole nine yards.

    So if for some reason our emails via your forms to your own email address get flagged by your Email Provider you end up getting marked as rejected and that in turn causes your email address to then be placed on our bouncelist.

    It's a known issue that tends to happen more often with Custom Email Addresses. And for that and many other reasons our developers created an option in the Settings page to allow you to check your email address and remove it if ever needed instead of waiting on us to do it for you all the time since sometimes it can occur more than once unless you whitelist us.

    This Wiki Topic here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bounce_message will help explain it more to you the long way if you want more information about it.
