I've got a folder set up to catch any bounced emails. I now need to obtain the dodgy email address for removal from a mailing list. How do I get the original address of who the email went to?

Many thanks,

You need to traverse the body parts of the message, looking for the original message that caused the problem. The problem that you'll find is that "bounced" messages don't have standard formats.

Read the headers. There is no automatic way and it may not even be there.
