    Hey all, I'm a newb but noticed something and though it might be a great bot and save us all the hotmail headaches.

    I understand that when emailing with smtp's like yahoo and hotmail, as bouncebacks start to accumulate, thats the trigger that the account is being use for spaming or whatnot and is frozen etc.

    on Hotmail specifically, you can forward your mail from your inbox to another email address and have the option to keep it in your inbox or not.

    I test it and when i forwarded and did NOT keep it in my inbox all mail bascially just went through my hotmail account like a drain. I am guessing here, but assume since no emails are left including the bounces that hotmail will not see boucebacks and just leave your account alone or not get flagged as its not accumulating bouncebacks.

    Am i wrong in this assumption and if not, could someone create a bot ( I'd pay for it ) to go into all of my hotmail accounts and set the forwarding wtih my email of choice and unselect to leave it on the server.

    Let me know your thoughts.
    thanx

    Well afaik (and I may be wrong) ..but its not only the number of bounce back emails present in your inbox. Hotmail tracks the number of bounces, each time a email bounces irrespective of the fact that the bounced email is in your inbox or not...So once that number gets high..it raises flag.. well again its one of the many ways they flag spamming accounts :)

    huh, thats interesting, i guess it was wishful thinking to assume if the slips through the inbox and out again it wouldn't be recorded !!!
