Description: A quick and dirty script that checks e-mail addresses in a flat file (one per line) and verifies them at their alleged domain. Not pretty, but it seems to work well enough! In actual practice, I redirect the output to a text file. And, just FYI, I did this to create a whitelist pulled from e-mail addresses out of a power user's address book for an anti-spam upgrade. It wasn't perfect, but it did get the job done.

my $st = localtime;
print "Process started at $st\n";

my $FILE = <>;
# Read the mail file
open(FILE,"$MAILFILE");
my @FILE = <FILE>;
close(FILE);

# Now, down to business...
# Actually check the e-mail addresses
print "Valid e-mail files verified against mail host\n";
foreach $FILE(@FILE) {
    if(check_email($FILE)) {
        print "$FILE";
    }
  } 

# What time did it end?
my $et = localtime;
print "Process ended at $et\n";
