Managing and deleting inactive users with invalid address

<< < (2/2)

Ricky.:
I may work on it to create a mod but currently busy with my primary work projects.
There are many ways to achieve this, can be done SMF too by parsing bounced mails. I am looking for more ideas here.

What i do on createaforum and my SMF sites. I parse the email logs from my mail servers SMTP logs
Then I change the members email address to .bad on the end of email in the forum.
I added to the sendmail function in sources/subs.php this code


--- Code: --- if (substr($to, -4) == '.bad')
return false;

--- End code ---



If you are sending though Amazon SES you can setup an SNS topic and have postback to your site for processing.
For that I include full headers so I can see what is going on. I use the SNS php API to the basic handling for that part.

Ricky.:
Alright, that's with Amazon SES and SNS, what for more generic SMF setup, using smpt or simply sendmail (php), any views ?

You would need to parse the SMTP logs and do the process above that is what I do.
