Sympa::Spindle::ProcessBounce - Workflow of bounce processing


  use Sympa::Spindle::ProcessBounce;
  my $spindle = Sympa::Spindle::ProcessBounce->new;


Sympa::Spindle::ProcessBounce defines workflow to process bounce messages including notifications requested by tracking feature.

When spin() method is invoked, messages kept in bounce spool are processed. Bounce spool may contain several types of bounce messages by their recipient addresses:

  • Bounce address of particular list. Messages bound for this address are analysed and increase bounce score of original recipient if any.
  • VERP address. Messages bound for this address are stored into tracking spool without envelope ID, and increase bounce score.
  • VERP address with "w" or "r" suffix. Messages bound for this address cause deletion of original recipient.
  • VERP address with envelope ID. Messages are Delivery Status Notification (DSN) or Message Disposition Notification (MDN). They are stored into tracking spool with envelope ID, and increase bounce score.
  • Others, and messages are E-mail Feedback Report. Reports are analysed, and if opt-out report is found and list configuration allows it, original recipient will be deleted.
