Query for valid email

I don't think so. If it is a single server, and you can manage the server, I'd export a list of email addresses and that you can script. If not, then I would have bounce messages ruled into a particular mail folder. That way you can at least find a way to compile the bounced addresses. For instance, I can select multiple emails and click Forward, in which case a new email is created with the contents of the forwarded emails. Copy paste that into a text file and then you can script a way to find the bounced addresses.

It's a kludge, but I think that is all you have without actually using a proper mailing list application, which might have a way to remove bounced addresses after a number of days or times.

Is there a quick way to script out a process to validate if an email address is valid against the mail sever you are sending it to?  We are trying to scrub a large list of old emails to see if they are still valid or not.

Your input would be most appreciated.
