Subject [email] Handling bounces (was Re: DO NOT REPLY [Bug 18968] - [email] Support SMTP Envelope From (bounce address))
Date Sun, 14 Nov 2004 21:17:57 GMT
I updated and added some notes at the bottom of 
xdocs/examples.xml.  I couldn't figure out any way to have Dumbster 
"simulate" a bounce, but I did write a trivial Java app that sent a 
message with and without setting the bounce address value and 
confirmed that it did what I intended it to do.

I haven't yet got karma for any Commons-proper projects, but I'd be 
happy to be on STATUS and continue to try to help keep email going 
after it graduates from the sandbox.
