Hi,
I have my java application running in Unix environment.The end-user of my application can select certain number of people from displayed jsp page and send mail. The no. of people being sent can be in thousands.Now my problem is that the person sending the mail is generally a high probile person who may not like to receive the mail bounced from any inbox, Is there a way to sort out this problem considering the fact that exchange server is not allowed to parse the body content of that bounced mail.
Nor are we allowed to set the return path of the message.
Does anybody have any suggestion on this?
Thanks a lot in advance
Varun

Given the constraints you describe, I don't think there is a solution. Bulk emailing always has problems, with invalid addresss, mailbox full bounces, and "out of office" messages among them.
If you are not allowed to process incoming mail to eat bounces, and not allowed to redirect returned mail you'll just have to accept it and make sure the address list is as "clean" as it can be.
If you know in advance, and it is politically acceptable, you could send your own "stand by for an important message" message to the same address list. Then you could catch any bounces you get back manually and (temporarily or permanently) remove them from the main address list.
