in reply to Detecting bounced mails

What e-mail program do you use? It seems to me that it would be much more reliable to have every email you send registered in a database (i.e. whoever you're emailing to), and if you get a bounce from that domain within 24-48 hours you let it through, otherwise you drop the email from your bounced list.

There are, unfortunately, more then just MAILER-DAEMON@* daemons out there. Has that proved a problem for you?

    Currently I'm storing all my outgoing mail in an mbox file, so I could also periodically scan that file, or maybe scan my exim log for the outgoing message IDs. But first, I need to determine if an incoming mail is a bounce before I can decide whether I want to see it or not...

    I did test my module against the mails of yesterday and the two days before, and it finds all bounces. More I can't say :-)
