Current Bounce Count vs overall Bounce Count?


in the phplist config, it states

// how many bounces in a row need to have occurred for a user to be marked unconfirmed
$bounce_unsubscribe_threshold = 5;

to me, that “in a row” means that a user with a bouncecount of 4 will, after a single successful delivery, once again need 5 bounces “in a row” for the user to be blacklisted.

Yet in the database I can only find one column called “bouncecount” that is apparently not set to 0 when a delivery is successful. Instead, it seems to keep track of the user’s overall number of bounces.

Where and how would I be able to identify the number of “current bounces”, that is, how many more bounces a user actually needs before being blacklisted, as opposed to the user’s overall number of bounces.


@ts.mz2 phplist works that out dynamically within the processbounces processing. There isn’t a report to see the number of consecutive bounces for subscribers.

I forgot about the Subscribers plugin which does have such a report. Follow the “Find plugins” link on the Manage Plugins page.
