    I totally agree with Kilian!

    Five years without any improvment... It's a huge time in the "online world"....

    I recently took matters into my own hands and built a bounce notification system myself using Zapier. This was actually quite easy (no technical knowledge needed) since we relay incoming email over the Gmail servers and Zapier has both Zendesk and Gmail integrations. (If you forward your email from another email service, you have to check if they have an integration with Zapier as well, like Microsoft Outlook.) It works like a charm for me and I hope it will help others as well. This is what my 'Zap' looks like:

    When this happens...

    1. New Email Matching Search in Gmail (from:MAILER-DAEMON@*

    Do this...

    2. Text - Extract Email Address (from the email's body text from step 1).

    3. Find a Ticket in Zendesk (using the extracted email address from step 2 and order_by:created sort:desc).

    4. Update Ticket in Zendesk (using ticket id from step 3, setting status to 'open' and adding the email's body text from step 1 as comment).

    @Jonathan - This is all done through Zapier app integration with Zendesk? Also, Zapier is a monthly cost from what I see. Is that correct?

  • Jonathan

    @Amber Yes, this was all done through the Zapier app integration with Zendesk AND Gmail.

    And yes, you'll need the monthly 20$ plan to get this to work. (But you might use Zapier for other automations as well - it's a nice service! #nospon)

    +1 for this. If you use basic email for support you have this functionnality, bu not with a tool like Zendesk !

    We need this functionality.

    Our agent are not informed when an answer is not delivererd. 

    Thank you.

    Agents must be informed when e-mails are hard bounced. Building a workaround process is a good idea for app developers though.

    Any update on this? These notifications as well as out of office replies can be seen as essential infomation for customer services teams. Any plans in the near future on Zendesk side for this?

  • Krista Zaloudek

    Looks like this has been an ongoing issue for a while and one which will affect our company.

    We are using Side Conversation emails in Support and have no idea when messages our not being delivered. For our agents, they will show that an email was sent, but that is all.

    It sounds like there is functionality in the ZenDesk suite in the Sell product for this, but not Support?

    I was thinking about this the other day.. it seems to me maybe it's a spam risk to let us know?

    If that's related, getting notifications for verified emails at least, would be a great start.

    Uou may want to try Read Receipts for Zendesk as a workaround as it will track email opens and you can take action based on unopened emails. It takes less than 30 seconds to install and activate. You can also can generate metrics about email performance by agent, group, tags, macros or triggers along with a few other features.
