MAX Programming, LLC – eMail Bounce Handler v2.0 September, 14 2004

Maxprog is proud to present a new eMail Bounce Handler update. eMail
Bounce Handler is Maxprog bounce e-mail filtering and handling tool.

) Overview

Bounce e-mail (sometimes referred to as bounce mail) is electronic mail
that is returned to the sender because it cannot be delivered for some
reason. Unless otherwise arranged, bounce e-mail usually appears as a
new note in your inbox. E-mail users can encounter bounce e-mail
because an addressee has changed his or her address, because their mail
box is full, because the note is misaddressed, or for some other

Bounce e-mail can be handled by a program when sending e-mail to a list
and most e-mail distribution list vendors include this capability. Such
a bounce handler can retry later, unsubscribe the addressee from the
list, or take some other action.

Maxprog has developed eMail Bounce Handler, a bounce e-mail filtering
and handling tool that recognizes bounce e-mails using a customizable
set of rules and extracts the recipients addresses allowing you to use
them again to try sending your mail or to take them off your list.
eMail Bounce Handler simply connects to your POP or IMAP mailbox in
order to retrieve bounces letting any other message untouched. Once
your mailbox is processed and all bounces removed from your server, you
will get your list of “bad” e-mails addresses. Then you can export it
in order to clean your original list or to try to send your mail again.
If you use Maxprog Bulk Mailer, you can name your file “Delete” and
then drop it over MaxBulk Mailer recipient list . All addresses from
the file will be removed from the list in a snap!

Note that as eMail Bounce Handler rules are fully customizable you can
perfectly use this software to handle UNSUBSCRIBE requests as well.
