Average Bounce Rates:

1.For a regularly mailed list expect between .2% .5%
2.For a less frequently mailed list expect between 5%-7%
3.First time mailing lists can be as high as 20%-30%

Tips to lower the Bounce Rate:

1.Mail regularly to keep list clean and stay in your recipients mind
2.Provide value in your emails that will be missed if email address changes
