Setup a Mailbox to Receive Bounced Emails?

Question: In order to receive bounced emails, do we need to setup a mailbox?

Yes. To receive bounced emails and process them automatically for the purpose of
updating/cleaning your email list, you may wish to establish a mailbox for the express purpose
of receiving bounced mail (i.e. DSN or delivery status notifications) and other automated replies.
Chilkat offers both POP3 and IMAP client components, so the mailbox may be either.
If the mail server is POP3, you would use the Chilkat Mailman object to read it.
The mailman.MailHost property specifies the hostname of the POP3 server.
(The Chilkat Email component provides POP3 and SMTP functionality.)
If using IMAP, you should use the Chilkat IMAP component.

When sending email using Chilkat Mail (via the mailman object), you can set the
email object’s BounceAddress property equal to the email address where you want
DSNs delivered.
