Hi

We have a situation where, when emails bounce back for whatever reason, they are put into IIS6 Queue directory where we would like Bouncebacks to be placed into the BadMail Directory.

The server is Windows 2003, IIS6.

I hope this question is not to vague.

Please request more information and I would be happy to help.

Thanks

David

Mail will be placed in BadMail if undeliverable. The SMTP server is supposed to return the Non-Delivery Report to the sender, only if it cannot will it go into the BadMail folder.

Hi Chris

Thanx for the input.

Our final solution involved setting the From address with a "spoof" email address and the Reply-To with a legitamate email address.

The result was that when the email is bounced back it uses the From address and is put into the "Drop" folder which is one that we monitor as well as BadMail.

If the client receives the email and replies to it then it will be processed inthe correct fashion by the "Queue" folder.
