Failed Email Delivery
Posted on 2001-09-12
We send email from our ASP pages using CDONTS. After executing myOBJ.send, is there anyway to detect if an email was not successfully delivered? Is there some method or event of the CDONTS object that can be used to detect failed deliveries?
In Outlook, when an email is sent to an invalid email address, I receive a notification in my Inbox that the delivery failed. Does CDONTS do this or can detect this notification?
From my understanding, CDONTS runs on top of SMTP. Is there a SMTP command, event, method, etc. that is fired or can be fired when email deliveries fail? If so, can the notification be detected in ASP?
We can not use Outlook and we want to do this from our ASP pages. Is this possible? What can I do?
