The relevant database table was correctly updated to show the message status as delivered successfully.

The problem could be caused when email message status code is not being received in the bounce email as expected. The status code was incorrectly received as 'Status: 5.1.2 (bad destination system: no such domain)'. EngageOne Deliver expects the status code to be a number and not containing any text. The correct status code, as EngageOne Deliver expects it, would be 'Status: 5.1.2'.

This problem exists in all releases of EngageOne Deliver.



UPDATED: May 27, 2019
As a workaround to rectify the problem, following SQL script can be executed against the EngageOne Deliver database to increase the length of column where status code is stored.

ALTER TABLE [outbound_message] ALTER COLUMN [status_code] [nvarchar](128) NULL;
