What does the bounced email handler do?
It stops sending emails to addresses that are no longer valid. This helps keep your email from being marked as spam, and helps get your legitimate emails through spam filters as a result.

More technically:
  1. It collects emails that "bounce" (are returned to you, the sender),
  2. Counts them and marks those accounts with lots of bounces.
  3. It stops sending "new post" notifications to those addresses.
To install:
  1. Set up a separate email address to handle bounces, such as bounce@yourdomain.com.
    (Do not use your normal email address. This modification will delete your other emails if you do!)
  2. Upload the PHP file.
  3. Install this plugin.
  4. AdminCP > Settings > Options > Email Options: Set "Bounce email address" to the address in step 1.
  5. AdminCP > Settings > Options > Bounced Email Handler: Fill in your settings
  6. Test it:
    - AdminCP > Scheduled Tasks > bounced_email_handler > Run Now to see if it is working.
    - Check the email account to make sure that it is deleting the emails that it has imported.
Areas of improvement:
  1. Find a way to stop sending other emails that shouldn't be sent such as forum subscription updates and birthday messages.
  2. Add switch to not send PMs.
  3. Add option to archive instead of delete emails for Gmail accounts.
Please fork this add-on for VB5 and other forum software. You have my permission!

Nobody wants to update this? TC has given his permission in OP.

This should really be standard vb feature as sending mails to invalid addresses is really bad for your reputation in spam filter. Code needed to auto move users to new group and remove their subs was posted. So really no volunteer to improve or fix this product?
