I'm here to ensure you'll get the best help possible, let's get this sorted out. For bounced emails there are two main reasons that it wasn’t sent:
• because the email address was entered incorrectly
• there was a temporary issue with the recipient's email server
To isolate this issue, your customers may need to add "firstname.lastname@example.org" to their contact list or Safe Sender book to make sure they'll be receiving the invoices.
On the other hand, receiving notification for the bounced invoice is currently unavailable in QuickBooks Self-Employed. As a workaround, you might want to open the invoices and ensure that you've entered the correct customer's email address before sending them to avoid bouncing them back.
I can see how this feature would be useful. I'll be personally taking note of this feature preference and relay this suggestion to our Product Developer and hopefully, they'll consider this feature in our future update. As a team with a massive road-map, we have to pick new features based on the value they’ll add to the most users possible.

Thank you for your reply. I've also noticed that there is no way to copy yourself on the same email that is going to your client, or see a date stamped copy of the invoice that was mailed to them. My invoices are now over 30 days late and they said they need proof that I have sent them.
Hi there, lindsayconnolly2.
You can send your client a report about the invoices you have emailed to them. Let me guide you through the steps.
To email this report, you can send it by clicking on the Email button on the page. Afterwards, enter the necessary details to send this report. You can also download this via .pdf file and attach this in your email outside QuickBooks. I also attach a screenshot for your reference.
You can check this article to give you more insights about running reports in QuickBooks Online.

Hi there, lindsayconnolly2,
My colleague @MarsStephanieL has provided the steps for QuickBooks Online.
Let me clear things out for you about the invoice you've created and sent in QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE).
You're right that there isn't a stamped copy of the invoice you've mailed. You'll want to manually print or export the transaction to PDF, and sent it to your customer outside QBSE.
Here's how to print or export the invoice:
Also, you can take a screenshot of the status and date of the invoice sent to your customer. You'll see this under the Status column on the Invoices page. This serves as a proof that you've already mailed the transaction. See the screenshot below for your visual reference.
Just a heads up, the sender ID "email@example.com" is not included in the Sender Policy Framework (SPF), an email authentication system that prevents email spoofing. If Sender ID filtering is turned on, then emails coming from firstname.lastname@example.org automatically gets rejected.
You need to contact your IT person or domain provider for assistance to temporarily turn off Sender ID filtering or get help on what’s causing you not to receive the email.
Let me know if you have follow-up questions, and I'm always around to help you out.
