Bouncing is not so serious. It also occurs when an ISP temporarily can not accept messages. My ISP regularly bounces messages from YahooGroups because of the large amount of spam, and other more serious attacks that can come from this source. When YahooGroups fixes the problem then we can get messages through again, but we have to physically go on-line to YahooGroups to remove the Bouncing tag. I do this on all my groups about 10 times a year. It is possible to go a long time without noticing that one is no longer receiving messages from YahooGroups - but one does notice an increase in useful work done! I usually reset my account within 24-48 hours.

So, while some of the bouncing members have undoubtedly gone away, others will be on temporary absence. Maybe their inbox is full up - that is another reason for bouncing.

A diligent moderator or owner will occasionally attempt to contact his bouncing members, but most owners are more inclined to keep their membership figures high, so do not remove those who are unreachable.
