Does a Carrier Failover count towards the Retry limit?

For example, I have retries = 1.

Send a message out through Carrier-A

The message follows this flow:

Carrier-A Failover = Carrier-B
Carrier-B Failover = Carrier-C

If all 3 carriers fail, will the message go Carrier-A, Carrier-B, Carrier-C, and then retry one time and go Carrier-A, Carrier-B, Carrier-C ?

Or will it stop after the first Carrier-B because of the Retry=1 limit?

With 1 retry and 2 failover carriers, this is how it would work:

Message created for Carrier A.

Message delivery is attempted.

Message delivery is attempted for 1 retry.

Message 'fails' and is passed Carrier B in the Failover sequence.

Message delivery is attempted.

Message delivery is attempted.

Message 'fails' and is passed Carrier C in the Failover sequence.

Message delivery is attempted.

Message delivery is attempted.

Message is marked as undeliverable.

That really doesn't make sense.

You say that when Carrier-A fails, the message is then marked for retry.

That 1 retry makes it go to Carrier-B. Okay, fine.

Carrier-B fails. Why do you show it going on to Carrier-C then?

Oh, maybe I misread your reply. You are showing it retrying A-A-B-B-C-C . Okay, that makes sense. I was thinking A-B-C-A-B-C.

Right, I meant it as A-A-B-B-C-C.
