MailTester batch e-mail checking program
A program is currently being developed that will be able to check a whole list of e-mail addresses.
It can handle any table accessible through ODBC:
- Microsoft Excel
- Microsoft Access
- Microsoft SQL Server
All you have to do is select the database table, indicate which field contains the e-mail address to be checked, and which field should be used to store the status of the e-mail address. Then you're all set to start checking the database.
When it is finished the status field will contain a status code (> 0 means the e-mail address is not valid).
This can then be used for a mailing by selecting only valid e-mail addresses from the database, thus reducing the number of bouncing e-mails to a minimum. It also enables you to decide which people should receive the mailing through another medium (e.g. fax or mail).
Or it can be used to check regularly for which of your correspondents you still have a valid e-mail address.Requirements:
- Windows 98/ME/NT4/2000/XP with ODBC
- An Internet connection
- A network interface card
