The best you can do is to make sure the return address on your outbound messages directs to a program that will look through bounces to try to figure out the failed address. You can add an extra header to help you. For instance, send out your messages with X-List-To: [EMAIL PROTECTED] and then just scan incoming mail at that address for X-List-To: (.*) which will give you the failed addresses. Then add them to or subtract them from a database. There's no practical way to find out about failed deliveries while you're sending; you have to sit back and wait until the bounces come in (even though some of them might come very quickly). miguel -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
