Baunsu

Baunsu (bounce in japanese) is an email bounce detection library inspired by Lamson Project's bounce detection algorithm.

Usage

var fs = require('fs'),
  Baunsu = require('baunsu');

fs.readFile('./bouncedEmail.txt', function(err, data) {
  var bounce = new Baunsu();

  bounce.on('end', function(err, baunsuResult) {
    if (err)
      throw err;

    console.log(baunsuResult.bounced);
  });

  bounce.detect(data);
});

Note:

The bouncedEmail.txt must contains a 'bounced error mail'. You can find examples in the tests/emails directory

These mails are returned by a mailserver when it can't deliver the message.

You can use this module by hooking it to your mailserver whenever a bounced mail is received, and do something for it (such as flagging the email address, preventing further bounces)
