Hi.

I need know how can i do to detect when a message, that i read from the inbox, is a message send by the server to notify me a failure.

For example, when i send a message with an erroneus address, the server send my a e-mail with a error notify and this messages attach. Well, There is a header or flag or something in the message that can say me that this is a delivery status notification from the server?

Thanks.

I think the best answer is yes, some or most of the time, but not all of the time, depending on what mail servers are generating the DSN's (bounces). Go and look at the RFC's for DSN's, and see some examples. Collect some real examples of real bounces from your mailbox, including all the headers.

But there are lots of horrible mail servers out there, that don't follow standards... if you're lucky you won't have any subscribers on them!
