Automated bounced email handler

Post by dimetrius » Mon Jan 21, 2019 2:06 pm

Hello,

can you add "Automated bounced email handler"?

This feature is very necessary for large conferences, with which email messages are constantly sent to clients whose mailboxes are no longer available.
Or, when registering by the client, not valid addresses are indicated.

As example, you can see to XenForo.

That would require phpBB to be able to access a mailbox to begin with, which yet is not possible - only sendmail and SMTP. For what you want first POP or IMAP needs to be supported, then phpBB would have access to mailboxes and be able to read e-mails at all.

Keep in mind what BB in phpBB stands for - it's main purpose is not to be a mailing list.
