Bounce processing protects the integrity of email lists by ensuring they are clean and current. The result is higher deliverability since ISP's regard repeated attempts to deliver to nonexistent addresses as spamming or harvesting. XM Mail Server has the ability, with its bounce processing filter & database connectivity filter, to write to your database and update your email list directly through the server, in real-time.
