We rcommend you take the following steps:

  2. Send an email campaign informing them that their email address will soon be invalid. So In order to continue receiving your emails, they need to provide you with a new email address
  3. This is also an opportunity for them to update their contact details and profile and for you to gather more information

We recommend you perform the following actions

It is vital you run this campaign as soon as possible. As sending emails to non valid address can lead to a high hard bounce rate and could damage your sender reputation and hence your overall deliverability.
