I am looking for a tool that will strip out email address from bounced emails. We currently manage a mail list inhouse and everytime we blast the list we get a few hundred messages bounce back due to bad address or expired addresses etc. I want to clean up the database but it simply takes to long to have to open each email to see who it was and then delete them. Does anybody know of a tool that can help me out with this?

I am doing mine with a perl script Oil, but it fails so much that it is next to useless. I had 1k bounces after the last quarterly and it took two days to clean up. The problem is finding one that can recognize all the variations in bounces. I can't get a perl script to parse through all those variations.

I think this next time, I am going send the letters with the senders address printed at the very bottom of every email (subscribed under foo@bar.com). That way a script can pick right up on it.

sounds like a pretty sweet idea. Our guys here use a 'built inhouse' email manager. It works good but I don't know if it has the flexibility to append the emails like that.

That's what you get in a software company alot of the time. These guys would rather spend a week building something that is, 4 out 5 times, less useful than what we could have bought for a couple hundred bucks. But when they get that 1 out of 5 solution they're pretty cool - I must admit.

Many of the commercial mass mailers can do the tag on the end. Mine really can't at this point because I use BCC for 20 addresses at a pop. It is much easier to 1500 emails than 30k.

Here [chrisknight.com] is another email verification tool. The source is freely available so I am sure it could be easily worked into an mass mailing script.
