We use QBO to send invoices to customers over email. Lately, QBO is flagging every invoice as "Delivery Error: Bounced Email" but the customer is actually receiving the email. This means we no longer know if the customer is actually receiving the email or not, and several have complained that they have gotten the invoice multiple times when we try and resend it to them. It looks like most but not all invoices are being flagged, but we can't find a pattern to which ones are and which ones are not.
Hi there, @ER_BR.
Sometimes local internet cache files stored in the system can cause unexpected behavior in the product. This can be the reason why you're still getting an error message even if they're actually sent.
To fix the issue, let's run some basic troubleshooting steps. Start by accessing your account using a private window. This way, we can verify if the error is cache-related. You can access this by pressing the following keys:
Once done, check again your flagged invoices. If the errors are gone, back to your regular browser and clear its cache. Alternatively, use a different supported browser if the issue persists. This might be a temporary issue with QuickBooks and the current browser that you use.
In case you're still getting the same error messages, reach out to our QuickBooks Online Support Team. This way, they can check your account and perform a further investigation to fix the problem.
I'm also including our Help articles for related references in managing your account and transactions.

Can't they give you any other information aside from the email bounced? The invoice email is coming back to them, so maybe there is something else in the headers?? I would ask QBO to try and give you more information aside from just the response. Then, you can try looking that up to investigate further..
This problem has been going on since February - so many posts I can't keep count. Works one day and the next you get a page full of delivery errors.
You don't know which email failed the one to your customer or the copy you send yourself.
Customers are not paying because they haven't received email and others have received multiple copies.
Its unbelievable that a company as large as Intuit has not fixed this problem when it has been on going for 6 months.
So many posts on this issue I can't keep track of them all yet still not fixed.
