(VBScript) MailMan GetBadEmailAddrs
Demonstrates how to get the email addresses flagged as invalid during an SMTP send.
Note: An SMTP server can only issue errors for email addresses under it's own domain. For example, if using smtp.gmail.com to send email, the GMail server can only know what emails in the gmail.com domain are invalid. If, for example, the "TO" recipient is "doesNotExist@chilkatsoft.com", then the email would be accepted. If it's not actually a valid email address, it is not flagged as an error during the client-to-SMTP-server conversation. (If the email address turns out to be truly invalid, then a DSN (Delivery Status Notification, or "bounce") email *might* be sent by the final destination mail server to the return address.
