ResponseMaster fully processes all aspects of the returned email. There is no better means to know the status of an email address than processing the returned email in full. A cleaning service will examine only a few factors about the email address prior to delivery to try to determine if it is valid. In the end, however, their analysis is still only a guess if any particular email address is valid.

  1. Processing log file ../ResponseMaster/output/log.txt.

Does ResponseMaster automatically sort bounced/returned email?2021-03-29T13:44:00-04:00

Organizations wrestle with what to do with all the returned or bounced emails after sending out a mass email or newsletter. Often marketing managers or others try to process the information manually. This is generally a time-consuming and cost-prohibitive task, as it can be hard to understand the reason for the bounce. ResponseMaster solves this problem. The software automatically processes all your bounce-back messages and returned emails accurately and provides you with an array of details and insights.

Can ReponseMaster tell if my business has been identified as a spammer?2021-04-05T21:47:41-04:00

Nobody wants spam. We fight it everyday. But what if your organization is sending out legitimate emails and has been identified by an organization as a spammer? How will you know? Unless you have sophisticated bounce management software, you will probably never know and your emails are not delivered. ResponseMaster immediately identifies ISPs that are blocking your emails.

Can ResponseMaster understand email in multiple languages?2021-03-29T13:43:35-04:00

Many companies are international these days. They have customers in the Americas, Asia and Europe. That means emails are sent out in multiple languages and processed by servers that also communicate in multiple languages. ResponseMaster understands most major languages and processes emails around the globe.

Can ResponseMaster handle challenge responses?2021-03-29T13:43:29-04:00

Some ISPs are sophisticated enough to use challenges, similar to two-factor authentication. When someone signs up for your email list, the server wants to make sure you’re legitimate and sends a message to confirm the end user has opted into the correspondence. ResponseMaster understands the issue and sends the response to the proper location.

Can ResponseMaster identify user replies to a message?2021-03-29T13:43:24-04:00

One of the unique features of ResponseMaster is its ability to identify responses from customers. In a reply to your mass email, your current customer might have a question or a potential customer might send an inquiry. You need to identify and understand these messages. ResponseMaster comprehends the intent of the message and sends it to the appropriate email box.

Can ResponseMaster differentiate bad email addresses from those that might be good?2021-03-29T13:43:16-04:00

Email is a complicated process and interpreting the exact meaning of a bounced email can be challenging. Different servers process messages differently. One of the hardest things to do is determine what the message is telling you to do. Mail servers sometimes split the message between the body of the bounce message and an attachment. ResponseMaster has the most accurate bounce email processor in the industry. The state-of-the-art software breaks the bounced email into 18 parts. Once the email has been broken into parts, the program applies sophisticated rules to determine the type of bounced message. It can differentiate between different types of bad email addresses.

Can ResponseMaster help improve email delivery times?2021-03-29T13:43:08-04:00

Delayed email delivery is a common issue for businesses that send out mass emails. The attempted delivery of an email to an incorrect email address can tie up a delivery channel to that ISP for minutes. With limited channels to an ISP, attempting to send messages to bad email addresses can take minutes. At the rate email addresses change, over time your mail servers spend more time attempting to send email to bad email addresses than valid emails addresses. ResponseMaster provides you with a list of email addresses that are bad and can be removed from your list. These are called hard bounces. It will also provide you a list of email address that might be bad. These are called soft bounces. With this information, you can keep your email list clean and up-to-date and your server running efficiently.

Can ResponseMaster help me reduce the time it takes to clean up my email list?2021-03-29T13:43:00-04:00

As your email list grows, you have to spend valuable time keeping it clean and updated. Some organizations try to develop their own bounce-management system, but this takes time and money. Other companies try to do it manually, but this is also a time-consuming process. ResponseMaster is a valuable way to preserve precious resources and efficiently manage email lists.
