pop email for returned address harvesting - Coldfusion - Advanced Techniques

We have several customers with mailing lists that don't want to remove the bad addresses so they're getting 1500 - 2000 returns each time they send out. I'd like to write something that will p out the bad addresses so I can remove them from their lists rather than going through them 1 by 1.

    Default pop email for returned address harvesting

    We have several customers with mailing lists that don't want to remove the bad
    addresses so they're getting 1500 - 2000 returns each time they send out. I'd
    like to write something that will p out the bad addresses so I can remove
    them from their lists rather than going through them 1 by 1.

    I'm interested in writing an app that would pop an email account and retrieve
    a list of bad email addresses that were returned from mailing out a list using
    cf. The challenge is extracting just the bad address from the body of the
    emails because they're not coming back from the address that it was sent to.

    If you running on a Windows box, go to CFusion/Mail/Undelivr. There you will
    find all your bounced mail. A sample header is shown below. You can easiely
    p the header and extract the bad address (in this case, com).


    x-cf-version: 4.5.0
    x-cf-server: 101.120.140.190
    x-cf-port: 25
    x-cf-timeout: 60
    x-cf-from: com
    x-cf-to: com

    that sounds good except this list used ASP to send it out. I really need to be
    able to login into an email account and p the bad messages. Most of our
    customers are use the failto so they don't even get the returned messages and
    then simply deleting them. This method s from my standpoint.
