Bounce testing

We are offering a few inboxes that will automatically respond with pre-defined error codes so that developers can more thoroughly test their implemenation with MailerSend (webhooks, etc.). The emails sent will count towards quota, but the results from said inboxes are not added to deliverability scores for accounts using them.
