Bounced vs. dropped:
Dropped emails - A temporary error commonly caused by a full inbox on the recipient's end. Kajabi will make several attempts to deliver the email, but if the email does not go through, it will drop.
Hard Bounced emails - A permanent error that can be caused by invalid emails, disabled inboxes, or if the domain doesn't exist.
