Exchange Help

By jedimastr1 ·
Hello fellow colleagues. I need your expertise. Actually, I'm posting this on behalf of another colleague. Here's the scenario. My friend works at a company who sends out a weekly publication. They email this publication via MS Exchange to their bulk email list of over 6000 subscribers. Here's the problem. They get bounced back emails from addresses that are no longer valid and those bounce backs clog up the server. I am not an Exchange admin so I need your expert advice on this one. What do you recommend as a remedy? Is there also a tool that will capture the bad email addresses and export them say to an Exel spreadsheet? Thank you in advance for your help.

Create a new <reply-to> address

and send the e-mail from that account. Though it has been a couple years since I have dealt with MS Exchange, I'm sure that there is a relatively simple way to get the address list from that mail box into an excel spreadsheet.

If you have a good systems programmer, he can probably develop an agent that runs through the mailbox and generates a text list of all the e-mail addresses that have sent e-mail. However, you MUST be careful as auto-replies, out-of-office replies, careless user replies, etc... will also end up sending e-mail here, so you will probably want some human intervention involved to ensure that valid e-mail addresses are not accidentally included in the list.
