Thanks for that. That's hitting the nail right on the head.
But I need a bit of PHP code to talk to mysql and only read the "from" part of the email and use a query to check the database if the entry is there. If it is than flag it, if not skip it and delete the email.
So would I need to edit the code to make the from section a input form or can I somehow get a query to get the from data from plain text?
All I want is the from address, the rest I don't really need.
UPDATE users SET flag='y' WHERE email='$from_address';
Might even output something to make sure it was sucessful or not.
What I need to know is how I get the from address?
That's tricky. What I do is to have a catch-all mailbox for my site domain. So, every message sent to a mailbox that does not really exist will be dropped in that catch-all mailbox.
When I send messages to each user, I make the return path address be set to something like [EMAIL PROTECTED] .
For instance, messages sent to [EMAIL PROTECTED] by the PHP Classes site, will have the return path set to [EMAIL PROTECTED] .
Since these address really do not exist, they will be dropped in the catch-all mailbox for that domain. So, all I need to do is to run a script that polls the POP3 mailbox of my catch-all account and parse the To: address of the bounced messages to figure the subscriber address that is bouncing. Not all bounce message will have the To: address set correctly. The remaining message should be ignored.
