View Full Version : Emails: Mail Delivery System

31 May 2008, 15:52
Hi Folks,

I'm just installed this Inactive Email Reminder modifcations info my VB board, pretty cool.

Anyway's, I've just recived back 70 Emails from Mail Delivery System and postmaster@ email domains. Attachments show that it's Welcome registration and Inactive reminders that cannot be generated.
This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.
Delivery to the following recipients failed.

Mail Delivery System
This is the Postfix program at host SMTP-HOST-ADDRESS.
I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.
For further assistance, please send mail to <postmaster>
If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
delete your own text from the attached returned message.
The Postfix program
<some.body@hotmail.com>: host mx1.hotmail.com[] said: 550 Requested action not taken: mailbox unavailable (in reply to RCPT TO command)

What are these emails about? Does it mean the member's account on my board are using invalid emails or there email accounts are not active? Should I delete the member?

Yes this means that the email address does not exist.

You may want to install the EZ bounced email management hack.

I had it before but I was still getting a few of these messages, There is no point in keeping members if there email is invalid and there inactive..

Is there any Hacks that are fully working? I seen the bounced email management hack and alot of people are having problems with it.

I'm getting 300 of these emails now!
