How to reactivate my email campaigns after a suspension?

As a trusted email service provider, Brevo closely monitors both shared and dedicated IPs used to send email campaigns and the quality of your sendings to guarantee optimal security and deliverability for our users.

If you've received a suspension notice or if the following message displays on your Compliance page, it means your email campaigns have been suspended:


We have temporarily suspended your email campaigns because of your latest results.
Before you can send campaigns again, you need to improve your campaigns' performance. To reactivate your account and guarantee your success, review the best practices below.

⚠️ At the next suspension your email campaigns will be permanently suspended

Why did I get suspended?

❗️ Important
Until you revalidate your account, you won't be able to send emails. Note that your subscription remains active during your suspension.

To provide you with the best environment to send your campaigns, we sometimes need to take a closer look at your campaign results to maintain sufficient metrics with Internet Service Providers (ISPs) such as Gmail or Outlook, so that your emails continue to arrive in your recipients' inbox.

However, this process can lead to a suspension if we detect negative results on:

  • Email campaigns sent in the last 24 h, or
  • An email campaign sent to new contacts. Brevo assesses engagement indicators from a random subset. If positive metrics are detected within 1-3 hours, the campaign continues. If negative, the campaign and account are suspended.

Negative results can include but are not limited to the following:

The details of the email campaign as well as the results that led to your suspension can be found on your Compliance page. In the example below, the unsubscribe rate generated in the last 24 hours for the Roadtrip Ready email campaign led to a suspension:


There could be several reasons for negative results, which is why you need to follow our guidelines below to be able to reactivate your account. After putting these pieces of advice into place, you'll be able to revalidate your account on your own ⬇️.
