Bounced E-mail Processing with CFMAIL - Coldfusion - Advanced Techniques

I am building a new e-mail list management tool. Because of all of the headaches with spam etc.. .I am trying to go to great lengths to make sure that people do not get spammed. One area that I have not figured out the best solution for yet is handling bounced e-mails. What is the best way to handle bounced e-mails from within ColdFusion? Is the only option to purchace a third-party tool like boogiePop? Any advice or ideas are appreciated. Thanks, Josh...

    Default Bounced E-mail Processing with CFMAIL

    I am building a new e-mail list management tool. Because of all of the

    One area that I have not figured out the best solution for yet is handling
    bounced e-mails.

    What is the best way to handle bounced e-mails from within ColdFusion? Is the
    only option to purchace a third-party tool like boogiePop?

    Any advice or ideas are appreciated.

    I'm sure I'm missing the point but an email bounces because it's no good
    anymore.

    Create a special e-mail account (com), have errors go to that
    e-mail (I think you need the Errors-To e-mail header), retrieve the e-mails
    with CFPOP, p them for e-mail addresses and remove the addresses from
    your database.

    Many email servers have the option to run scripts on a specific account. If you
    own and have access to your mail server's admin, you can actually setup a CF
    page that the account will run when an email is submitted to the account upon
    error. (You will still need an error account and use the Errors-To setting in
    the email)

    This has less overhead than running CFPOP all the time, and never actually
    retains the email, just acts on it.
