I'm working a project for one of the company's websites. they have a subscription
mailing list that the user signs up their email address to receies periodical
The email addresses are stored in a flat txt file. 1 email per line. I could also
convert it to a coma delimited txt file if it would be easier.
So, they've had problem with people who no longer want to receive emails, and one's
that bounce for whatever reason, generally a bad email address.
What I am trying to find out if who has some information to set up a system where we
will send out our emails to the subscribers with our mailing list manager. when i
customer respondes with a certain command in the body or subject (like unsubscribe) or
if the mail bounces, I'd like it to search out the email address and delete it.
Now, I know there's lists like majordomo that do something similar. But I'm looking
for something a little more straightforward.
I also know this may be more along the lines of shell scripting, but I thought some of
you ingenious people may have already done something similar or have some ideas on
where to start. thanks.
