Warm-up in Mailtoaster is a peer-to-peer service, that automatically exchanges emails between all warm-up users

If we notice that emails from other warm-up participants bounced to your account, a warm-up for this account will be stopped automatically. The status will be changed to “At Risk”

It needs to be done since too many bounces can impact the effectiveness of the overall warm-up process for other participants

There can be many reasons why emails might bounce during warm-up, such as misconfigured mail server of the recipient, temporary server issues, or the recipient's mailbox being full.

Please, contact our support team to check why emails sent to you bounce.

  3. Use any MX lookup online tool to detect your current MX records (

  4. If your MX records are incorrect or missing, set them according to the guide or contact your mail provider for additional support.
