Freeware to help you manage bounced, returned
or undeliverable email.

Available at: www.bouncemailmanager.com

ISPs are know to block or barred email domain for sending non-existing mails to their account holders repeatedly, because spammers often uses software to bulk generate email addresses for spamming. It is recommended to delete mails from your database after being bounced 4 to 6 times.

4 to 6 times? A bounced does not necessarily means that they are invalid--due to various reason like; inappropriate message header, busy mail servers, filtering devices that stimulate a "Hard bounced", auto responder, mailbox full or busy, server timeouts, concurrent connection limits, etc.

If you are getting one or more error messages like; 501, 502, 503--refered to as "Hard or Soft bounce". The usual source of failed mailing is that many ISPs mail server have requirements for outgoing (From:) or return (Reply To:) email address, etc.

Most of the time, bounced are due to your mail server identifying itself as an internal mail, for example: 127.0.0.1 or by using invalid email in the REPLY TO: or FROM: field, web-based email with no MX Records or the FROM: field email address being different from the login IP address, etc.

 

   

Every ISP's have their own standards and ways to bounce and filter spam--if your mails consistently fails, the underlying factors could be serious, like: black-listed email domain due to yours or your ISPs mail server being an "Open Relay", etc.

Undeliverable or bounced mails are not necessarily invalid, why did mail servers bounce them in the first place? There are many cases where customers had reconfirmed that their emails are valid, yet they were bounced. Most bounced can be avoided--for full info about bounced and how to overcome it... visit: http://www.bouncemailmanager.com

  • Q? What's the difference between our own mail server undeliverable mails and a bounced email?
    A.
    Undeliverable from your own mail server are mails
    that can't be sent out. Bounced are mails sent-out successfully and returned by recipients mail servers.
     
  • Q? What about bounced comes attached with a virus, etc?
    A. Your system will be not exposed to any virus because Ai-Intelligent Bounce logic scans only the mail "Raw" header contents, attachments are ignored and deleted from the mail server.
     
  • Q? Can a dial-up 28.8 kbps modem be used?
    A. Yes. BounceMail Manage only scans retrieved bounced mails "Raw" header contents and will be as fast as the modem or mail server can delivers them.
     
  • Q? How fast does the program process bounces?
    A. Between 1,000 and 4,000 bounced mails per hour depending on the connection throughput and device used, ie: 28.8 kbps dial-up, ISDN, ADSL, Cable, etc.
     
  • Q? What happens to all the bounced mails, after the program have retrieved them from the mail server?
    A. Bounced mails will not accumulate in the mailbox nor reside in your system because they are deleted immediately after the program have initiated the "end session" command to the mail server.
     
  • Q? I can't find the answer required, what should I do?
    A. For more info, click here www.bouncemailmanager.com

Program Useful Info

More info available here > Support

Read me: If you face all kinds of errors while using the program, it is possible that it was installed while other programs are still running and a "clash" of resource requirements during installation. It is recommended to "Uninstall" it by using windows uninstall options--Click Start >Settings >Control Panel >Add or Remove Program >select >MailsBroadcast and remove. Then, reinstall the program again, this time, ensure that you shut-down any running program first--do this--Press the Ctrl and Alt key down (keep it down) and press the Delete key--then highlight any running program one at a time, click the End Task button.

 

Broadcast Manager


Tip:
At the Broadcast Group - Point your mouse and click on any Email Lists to see how many email it contains or Right Click to add a list, view or remove it. You may add different list to the same broadcast group for broadcasting different messages.

Important: When a new message is added and unsent, using the right click menu, the Send this message command Active or when the Total Sent matches the number of email addresses in that particular list. When the Total Sent does not match the number of email addresses, then the Restart or resend this message becomes Active--so that you can send to the balance unmarked email or to "all" again.

Tip: Message with the same file name (same message) cannot be added within an "Email List" for broadcasting. It can be added (the same message) to a different "Email List" residing within the same broadcast group.

Note: After deleting an original message and then you attempt to "Send this message"--it will prompt: message could not be found, but if you face this problem: Runtime Error 3021 -- it is cause by deleting the message while the "Broadcast Group" is still open, simple close and re-open the program to refresh it.

Tip: Removing lists or messages in any broadcast group does not affect the original residing in their folder/file.

Note: When an original list is deleted--any attempt to send or resend messages with the deleted list displayed in any "Broadcast Group" will display this prompt: This list was broadcasted successfully, please select another list.

Note: When an original message is deleted--any attempt to send or resend the message will display this prompt: Could not find the message, make sure the message exist. And when you attempt to open and view the list, a prompt will display: List no longer found in database.

Important: After editing any message or email list, you may not be able to see the edited version in the broadcast group--close "Broadcast Manager" and re-open it again (to refresh it).

Tip: While broadcasting messages, you may stop it at any time, email addresses already sent will be automatically marked and you have the options to "Re-send to the balance unmarked ones.

Important: There may always be some unsent balance email and it is due to them not being accepted by the mail server because of errors, incorrect or non-existing email addresses--because mail servers may not "cache" all mails sent to them, hence unsent balance... for more info on this subject Click here

 


Broadcast Delivery Status

If you have entered the wrong information into the outgoing SMTP mail server field--see below "Setting up a Delivery Account"--mails can't be sent or if you have entered the correct info using ISP A account and login using ISP B account.

Note: During broadcasting, all other functions of the program is disabled--except for the "Stop, Start, Exit" button--it is to prevent errors in the broadcast process. It is not advisable to run other program (multi-tasking) to prevent errors.

Change Interval: 1 (not available on some version)  -- It is the same as--Insert a delay of: 1 tenths of a second between each message being sent to the mail server--it is to prevent overloading it, the setting here over-rides the one on "Part 4 of 4 at Broadcast delivery account" settings (see below).

Delivery Status display: Cannot Resolve Host--means that you are OFF-line (not connected to the Internet), wrong password used or authentication is required. Authentication mode is not supported or Authentication failed--means that either your mail server does not requires "Authentication" or wrong info is entry. See Log File Info for more email-log file report or eMail Bolts & Nuts

Note: Some mail server requires authentication and some don't, check it-up with your ISPs or System Admin if you are not sure.

Note: When you click "Stop Sending" it does not stop immediately because the program must give the command to the mail server to "End the session".

Note: If you face disconnection problem or "Server-time-out", it could be due to your ISPs limiting your access to their mail server by time or quantity of mails allowed to be sent or line connection or Internet throughput problem... try increasing the "Server Timeouts", insert a delay or send in blocks of 100 and pause a longer time or a combination of all three. Or try using another ISP of send at OFF-peak hours....

Note: While broadcasting emails, all other functions of the program will cease to work--to prevent errors during the broadcast process.

Setting-up a Delivery Account

Important:
If you have entered the wrong information into the outgoing SMTP mail server field--mails can't be sent.

The same problem with wrong "User Name and Password" and the log file will display: Authentication failed. And if your mail server does not requires "Authentication" and you have "check" it--the log file will display: Authentication mode is not supported.
See (below)  Log File Info for more email-log file report.

Note: Authentication, some mail server requires it and some don't, check it-up with your ISPs or System Admin if you are not sure.


Sender "From:" and "Reply To:"
Important: If you have entered the wrong or incorrect email address into the FROM: or REPLY TO: field--your ISP may prevent you from sending out messages or if they can be sent-out, recipients may not receive them.

Important: Some mail server will automatically "Reject/Bounce" or simply accept and delete you email if you have an erroneous email address or using ISP A email account and login with ISP B account.

For more info on the subject of erroneous
"From or Reply To:"
Click here

 

Important: Some mail server may not accept a "From: or Reply To:" email address using different ISPs account, example: using ISP A email account and login using ISP B account to send mails.

Tips: Ensure that the correct entry so that your recipients can reply to your messages and prevent ISPs from blocking your mails.

Read me: Using a dial-up 56.6 line may send more than 850 TEXT messages (5 Kb file size) in ideal condition and more than 420 HTML messages (25 Kb file size) was "clocked" being delivered to an ISP mail server. And above 7,200 TEXT messages (5 Kb file size) and more than 4,000 HTML messages (25 Kb file size) was "clocked" delivered to an ISP mail server with a 128 Kbps ISDN connection.

Read me: Broadcasting speed varies greatly from one extreme to another--it depends on your connection throughput from a 28.8 dial-up, ISDN or ADSL, Internet and mail server throughput and file size of the TEXT or HTML message is being sent. Having a 512 kbps broadband connection does not mean having access to the same up-load speed to the mail server or the connection--throughput--depends on how many machine are connected to it within your neighborhood. ISPs may also limit your access to their mail server by time or quantity of mails sent.

Note: The freeware version of MailsBroadcast can only send to the first 100 email addresses per list.


Message Manager

How to insert an image or photo into
your HTML message for broadcasting?

The TEXT message word processor auto word-wrap at 78 characters, "hit carriage return" at 65 characters per line so that your recipients don't have to scroll "left and right" reading your message.

Page Break in your TEXT message?
The "Message Manager word processor" TEXT message page break will not "show-up" in your recipient mail reader, it will flow continuously like any normal text email message.

Tip: You can use any word processing program, for example: Windows WordPad or Notepad set to 65 characters per line to create messages, save as text.txt and then import it into the TEXT message manager for editing before broadcasting it.

Creating HTML Message

This is a highly complex and advance HTML word processor program from TX Text Control www.textcontrol.com

Important: If you have problem using the TX Text Control word processor, please go to their website www.textcontrol.com forum

Read me: Speed of broadcasting HTML messages will be much slower because HTML files are generally larger in size compared to TEXT messages. For more info on this subject Click here

Tip: The HTML word processor although complex is pretty simple to master after getting used to it--the most important part is to test send HTML messages back to yourself--to ensure that it is exactly what you want your recipients to see.

Tip: Composing HTML text are automatically word wrap and recipients do not need to scroll "left and right" to read the message, unless you are using "tables" with fix length.

Important: The TX Text Control word processor program cannot process nested tables--it means that you cannot have a table within a table (a table inside a table).

  Important: Importing HTML files created from different HTML program--will not be displayed with the correct formatting, if the imported file contains "nested tables"--a table within a table (a table inside a table).

Notes: The MailsBroadcast word processor program spell check utility utilize components and resources of the Microsoft Office Word processor--if it is not installed in your computer--then the spell check will not be operational.

Notes: After you have imported or inserted an image/photo into the HTML word processor, it is save into a "Temp" image file and when you open the message--you may not be able to see the image/photo--but can be seen by using the right click menu to preview it at "Broadcast Manager" before sending.

Tip:
It is recommended to include the HTTP:// command, followed by the URL when you hyperlink text to a website.

Important: The TX Text Control word processor does not auto underline the hyperlinked text nor colored it hyperlink blue, however, the formatting will appear correctly underlined and hyperlink in blue when recipient read it with their mail reader. The same thing when you enter an email address, it does not automatically insert the mailto:command you have to do it by using the "Link" tool to insert it, example: mailto:myemail@bi_iiz.com

Tip: You can view your HTML message hyperlink with Windows IE-browser by: "Message Manager" menu, select "Delete Message" and double click or "highlight and hit enter key" to open a HTML.html or TEXT file.


Load Text File button
- To import or open an existing TEXT file into the text message manager for editing.

Insert Text button  - To import or input pre-created TEXT into the currently opened text message.

New button - Clear all input in the current message display for new input.

Important: If you click the "NEW" button after creating a TEXT or HTML message without "Save Message" first -- the current message will be lost and non-recoverable.

Page Break in your HTML messages?
HTML message page break will not "show-up" in your recipient mail reader, it will be displayed in a continuously flow like any normal email message.

Tip: If you don't want a want a continuous flow for HTML messages, simply create a page break by inserting a blank table between each page.

Important: For HTML messages
When you select a field to be inserted into a message and if that field is in blue, red or any other color--it will be displayed exactly as in your recipient mail reader--to change the color, simply highlight it and use the TEXT color format tool to change the color.

Previewing a message in the Message Manager
Click on any email addresses (right) to preview.

Important: If your machine resources is low (ie: many running/open program) it may cause "runtime insufficient memory errors" when you click on the email addresses repeatedly and rapidly to preview a message. Turn-off or shut down some unnecessary program by using the "Ctrl, Alt, Delete key" and if the problem persist, reboot your machine--because some program does not return the "resources" back to "Windows" even after you have closed it.

Important: Occasionally, you may face this runtime error 94 Invalid use of null and the program hangs or closes--when a particular "Email List" was selected to preview--that particular email list is corrupted or got corrupted somehow (power failure, etc.). Try this solution: Close the MailsBroadcast Program and open it again, then open the list that is causing the problem, save it with a different name.

How to insert an image
or photo into your HTML message?

First step: You need to input some pictures or photos that you want to broadcast into C:/Program Files/Mailsbroadcast "temp" folder at: C:/Program Files\mailsbroadcast\temp
After you have added the required images or photos....
Next Step
At your Mailsbroadcast "Message Manager" select create a HTML message then click on the "image icon v arrow"
and... Navigate to:
C:/Program Files\mailsbroadcast\temp (folder) and select the image/photo that you wish to input into your message

You have just input an image/photo into your HTML message for broadcasting.

  List Manager

Important: Your email database is saved in the program under the file name email_list.mdb (Microsoft Access Application) -- it is not password protected -- if you make changes or temper with it--the (Mailsbroadcast) program may not be able to recognize and open the "tempered" database file.

Note: Occasionally, while entering data into an "Email List" and a notification: "The following error has occurred 2147221494 Failed to update data source" --- close the list that you are working on and re-open it again.

Note: Only one email list can be opened at any one time, while creating a "New blank list" with another list being opened--the new blank list will not be displayed--until the opened list is closed first.

Tip: Click on EmailAdd to...

Export a list: you can export and save it as TEXT or CSV file.
Exporting to
TEXT.txt file--only the email address, FirstName and LastName will be exported. Exporting to CSV file, all data (from 1 to 10) will be exported. The program will automatically create a file name for the database when you export them.

Important: Exporting the same list will overwrite the earlier exported ones residing in the same folder/file, unless you export it to another different folder.

Tip: Exporting your list is the best way to creates a back-up copy of your email lists database which can be re-imported. If you export to CSV format--all data can be re-imported.

Tip: Create a folder with an easy to remember name before exporting your database.

Import a List
You can import email addresses data into an existing list or into a new blank list by using the "New List" button.
1. Select a format
2. Select and load the file by clicking the Load button
3. Click OK to preview and click OK to import

Note: The program uses MS Access database and have no preset  database input limit--the limit is based on specification specified in Microsoft Access Database documentations. And it also depends on your computer processor and its available resources--which can affect the managing of very large database.

Important: The program have no preset limit on the quantity of email allowed to be input into each list but the quantity allowed to be sent, depends on the program version that you are using.

Open a list
Tip: When you click on a list, you can see how many email addresses is in that list.

Important: Deleting a list will be permanent and non-recoverable.

Merge List or Find Duplicates
When you merge 2 list into a new one, the original is not affected, the same function is also used for removing duplicates.

Log File Info

While broadcasting messages, the "Email Delivery Status" display real-time log info, to view the "Log file", it is in the program directory C:/Program Files/MailsBroadcast at "emailog.txt".

Q? Why are there so many connection errors in the log file--while in session with the mail server?
A. While in session, errors like: disconnection, etc., are due to line drop, server busy, network congestion, etc.

 


MailsBroadcast emaillog file errors
 

0 If the send method of the SMTP Object is returning 0 then it means the mail server accepted the e-mail with no error message.
1 An exception has occurred. (Disconnected from the Internet, etc.)
2 Failure reading file (error occurred when the mail object was reading the file).
3 In progress. The process has run out of memory.
4 An error has occurred due to a problem with data being sent to the mail server during a session.
5 Error parsing. There was a problem initiating the conversation with the mail server. Ensure the setting of the Domain property is correct.
6 There was an error terminating the conversation with the SMTP mail server.
7 Cancelled. The “From” address was not formatted correctly or was rejected by the SMTP mail server. Some SMTP mail servers will only accept mail from particular addresses or domains. SMTP mail servers may also reject a “From” address if the server can not successfully do a reverse lookup on the “From” address.
8 Connection lost. An error was reported in response to a recipient address. The SMTP server may refuse to handle mail for unknown recipients. If the mail server you are sending to does not allow relaying you may get this error as well. Some Mail servers require you to log in before sending messages
9 Exception. There was an error connecting to the SMTP mail server (due to undergoing maintenance or down).
10 There was an error opening a file. If you have specified file attachments, ensure that they exist and that you have access to them. Error 10 means that there is an error with opening one of the attachments that you added to the message.
11 There was an error reading a file. (Problems with the DNS server or if it is over-worked).
15 No mail server specified.
16 Not connected. There was a problem with the connection and a socket error occurred.
17 Could not resolve host or DNS error getting the host address (does not exist).

22 The operation timed-out while connecting.
24 ESMTP Authentication failed.
Could not find the specified message
25 The selected ESMTP Authentication mode is not supported by the server.
26 ESMTP Authentication protocol error.

About POP3

POP3 or Post Office Protocol Version 3 is a standard Internet client-server protocol for retrieving Internet mails by an email client--ie: Eudora Mail or Outlook Express etc. communicating with the mail server via port 110 by sending a login UserID, password to authenticate the session, retrieve and delete mails from the mailbox. Some online web-mail services like: Hotmail, AOL, etc. do not provide POP3 access to their mail server.

The Conversation
POP3 mail servers listen for mail requests and forward the emails to the requesting party and the default port on which the POP3 server listens for these requests is 110 and the client login to the server by sending the password for the mail account as clear text.

A POP3 session is created when a remote user connects to a mailbox on the POP3 mail server. The session ends when the remote user disconnects from the POP3 mail server. While in session, no other user can retrieve mail from the mailbox but the account can still receive emails.

APOP authentication is optional with POP3 -- the password itself is never sent to the remote mail server and a RSA MD5 algorithm digest based on the password and a unique value supplied by the mail server during the connection--this digest is sent to the mail server instead of the actual password. Due to the mail server supplied unique value with each connection, APOP authentication ensures that a different digest will be sent each time the user log into the mail server and will reduce the possibility of the password being stolen.

About SMTP

Simple Mail Transport Protocol is a protocol governing electronic mail transmission and reception (RFC 821)

The Conversation
A conversation is established with a SMTP server via port 25 --After the initial connection, the client ie: Eudora Mail, Outlook Express, etc. sends a HELO command followed by the domain name, telling the SMTP server whom it is talking to. The SMTP server may terminate the connection if it does not wish to speak to the specified domain.

If the HELO command is accepted by the remote server, the SMTP client issues a MAIL-FROM command followed by the FROM: address, at this point the SMTP server may terminate the connection if it does not wish to speak to the specified domain.

After the FROM address is accepted, the SMTP client issues a RCPT-TO command followed by the address of the intended recipient--the SMTP server may terminate the connection if it does not wish to speak to the specified address, example: non local.

The SMTP client issues the DATA command to the server and if accepted--it then send the message headers followed by blank line and the message body, file attachment and finally followed by a period to end the message--the SMTP server acknowledges receipt--and the SMTP client send a QUIT command and terminate the conversation.

RFC-822 message structure

Email messages are text files formatted to specifications outlined in RFC (Request For Comment) documents, that describe in detail how messages should be formatted and how systems should communicate with each other by following these guidelines.

An email message has the following parts:
RFC-822 Message Header and Message Data

RFC-822 Message Header is the first part all email messages, it specify the many options of the message and includes the subject line and headers are not required to be placed in any particular order. A MIME formatted message may contain many parts and each part may contain its own header and in the message data section.

Here is an example of a Message Header:

To: "Wendy" <support@mails.broadcast.com>
CC: "CEO" <c.e.o@mailsbroadcast.com>
Subject: I am getting too many bounce mails.
Date: Mon, 11 Nov 2002 12:38:23 -0400
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
X-Priority: 1
X-MSMail-Priority: Normal
X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook Express 6.00.2600.0000
X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE
   V6.00.2600.000

Reply-To: This is the specified email address that the sender wants the recipient to “Reply-To:” instead of the “From:” email address.
From: The “From:” email address in the header is allowed to be different from the email address that actually sent the message.
To: Message to be sent to that particular recipient.
CC: Send a carbon copy of the message to.
Subject: Message subject of the email.
Date: Indicates the date and time of the message created and a reference to the time zone used to calculate the date and time.
MIME-Version: Indicates the version used for MIME encoding of the message.
Content-Type: header is only used with MIME messages--to declare the general type of data and the subtype specifies a format for that type of data. For example: Content-Type: of "text/plain"--inform the user agent that the data is in plain text format. The optional “charset” parameter tells the mail reader that the message is intended to be displayed with the "iso-8859-1" character set.
Content-Transfer-Encoding: header is only used with MIME messages to specify an auxiliary encoding that was applied to the data, so that it is allowed to be to pass through the mail transport mechanisms--which may have data or character set limitations.
Custom Headers (X-* Type): headers with an “X-“ are added by the program that created the message and can be read by a mail reader, therefore, any special format specification or information contains in the message—can be taken advantage of—and ignored, if it is not recognized by a mail reader.
X-Priority: custom header is quite popular but different mail readers may interpret it differently or not at all. For example: usually most mail readers set or interpret "4"=low "3"=normal and "1"=high.

Message Data
Following after the message headers is the “Message Data”--the composed message body text and any file attachment information. Below here is an example a message body without files attachments:

Example of a message with GIF file attachment encoded with MIME and “Quote Printable” message body (GIF encoded with Base 64) preceded by an attachment header, which preceded all attachments and describing various properties of the attachment. Below here is the example:

 
This is a multi-part message in MIME format.
