Any help will be appreciated!Thank you in advance!

As far as I know, the only way you know that an e-mail has not been delivered is by receiving an e-mail stating so. These can have various formats and appearances.

You may be able to view all your incoming mail and somehow evaluate which particular e-mail it was and which particular addressee it was that did not receive it.

However, in my experience, in 99 44/100% of the undeliverable notices I get, it is for one of two reasons: 1) I have an incorrect/unresolvable e-mail address or 2) the user's mailbox is full (I'm in a corporate environment). I case 1), I can resolve that issue easily, but in case 2) I have no control.

Based upon your previous thread, issue 1) is exactly what you are encountering. We do not send 1,000's of e-mails daily, but several hundred sometimees in a week. We also probably have a much smaller list of customers and e-mail addressess than you apparently have, so our ability to manage those e-mail addresses is muchmore easily managed. Additionally, in a corporate enterprise environment, we know what everyone's e-mail address "ought" to be, so we can easily fix undeliverables.

Perhaps when ADezii has opportunity he can work through this with you.

I know you wnat, and probably need, an answer more quickly rather than later--however, our experts have jobs, too.

I wish I had more to give you.
