Punchbowl attempted to send an email or text message to the address or phone number provided but the message could not be delivered to its destination. When the information is provided to us, we'll list a reason for the failed delivery.
For email, the most common reason is "Email address doesn't exist". This indicates the recipient's email provider told us that address does not exist. We would recommend closely checking the spelling of the email to ensure it is accurate and making any necessary adjustments.
For phone numbers, the most common reason is that the phone number is a landline that does not accept text messages. We would recommend checking for an alternate number that does accept text messages.
If you are seeing another error, send us an email and include the email address(es) or phone number(s) in question and we can help offer some more advice.
