ListNanny 3.0 Released

by newuser09876 26. October 2012 07:44


We are proud to announce the release of ListNanny 3.0. This version has been a while in the making. It has a number of new notable features. Some that are exposed to developers, and some not. By far the biggest upgrade, is the internal pattern matching system.
Here is a listing of the new features.

New Internal Pattern Matching System
The internal system has now been extended to included decision branching trees.  As NDRs are pattern matched, they can take different internal tree branches, to better match NDR bounce patterns.

New Licensing System
Starting with version 3.0, ListNanny now uses a simple license key system. We've heard developers feedback, to get away from license files. Now, using a simple key, you can enable ListNanny in your applications. When moving from server to server, you no longer have to worry about license files being left behind.

Remap NDR Classifications
If you don’t agree with ListNanny’s classification system, you can now tell it to reclassify bounces to a different category.  For example, perhaps you think a SoftBounce should really be a HardBounce. Now you can reclassify the entire decision tree for that single bounce’s pattern matching branch, and just remap it to a different bounce category.

ARF Report Functionality
Now ListNanny will recognize ARF (Abuse Reporting Format). It allows developers to natively get at the ARF embedded data, in an object orientated manner.

New AOL Bounce Formats
ListNanny can now handle the new AOL bounce formats.

New NDR Web Notifications
Now, you can automatically callback to web applications, each time a bounce is processed.

XMail Support
ListNanny will natively support XMail bounce formats, for fast native processing, without needing to use the POP3 or IMAP protocol.

SmarterMail Support
ListNanny natively supports the SmarterMail grp file format. Automatically, and natively parse SmarterMail grp files for bounces, without needing to use the POP3 or IMAP protocol.

QMail Support
ListNanny nateively supports Qmail message formats. Automatically, and natively parse QMail files, without needing to use the POP3 or IMAP protocol.

Better COM/ASP Support
ListNanny supports COM and classic ASP environments. Wrapper classes make it easier to call methods, that normally wouldn't be available to the COM world.

Many New Methods and Properties
Besides these major code improvments, ListNanny has been expanded to better meet customer needs. Many new additional classes, methods and properties has been added to allow better access to NDR object for developer to quickly, and more efficiently get at data.

ListNanny update on Mar 29, 2011

by Dave 29. March 2011 06:33

For those that are interested, a new ListNanny update has been posted to the build udpates page.

The update includes the following:

A new NDRPart.Hrefs() method. 
This method will return a list of all web links found in the body of a bounce.

Exposed the CategorizeBounce( string key, NDRType newTypeClassification) method.
This new NDR method will allow the developer to change the classification of a bounce.  If the developer doesn't agree with ListNanny's bounce definition, the developer can simply call this method to remap the internal classification routine.

Fixed a bug in the ProcessingEngine class where it was possible to duplicate a NDR
There was a bug in the ProcessingEngine routine, where it was possible for a previous NDR to be prepended to the current NDR. This was unlikely to happen, but possible.

I also pushed a new NDR defintion file, that contains new NDR updates. This can be downloaded from:

Using ListNanny to Extract MBX (MBox) Files

by Dave 26. March 2011 01:34

One of the capabilities of ListNanny, is for it to be able to parse MBX (sometimes called MBox or Mailbox) files. It can parse and classify individual bounces found within those files.

However, another use, is to simply use ListNanny to convert the MBX file into it's individual emails.

Here is a short, but complete code example on how to do this.


//counter used for naming individual files
private int mbxCounter = 0;
private void ExtractMBX()

	//mbx path (change to match your system)
	string mbxPath  = @"D:\temp\main.mbx";

	//processing engine found in ListNanny
	ProcessingEngine pe = new ProcessingEngine();

	//wire up the OnBeforeParse file event
	pe.BeforeParseFile += new BeforeParseFileEventHandler( OnBeforeFileParse );
	pe.ProcessMBXFile( mbxPath );


private void OnBeforeFileParse( object sender, BeforeParseFileEventArgs e )
	//in this event, we will extract the email, save it to a file

	//email file path
	string emailFile  = @"d:\temp\MBXFiles\ExractedFile" + mbxCounter.ToString("00000") + ".eml";

	//write out the file
	string contents = e.Contents;
	StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter(emailFile);
	sw.Write( contents );

	//tell ListNanny to ignore any further processing
	e.IgnoreFile = true;
	e.Contents = string.Empty;


 'counter used for naming individual files
Private mbxCounter As Integer = 0

Private Sub ExtractMBX()
   'mbx path (change to match your system)
   Dim mbxPath As String = "D:\temp\main.mbx"
   'processing engine found in ListNanny
   Dim pe As New ProcessingEngine()
   'wire up the OnBeforeParse file event
   AddHandler pe.BeforeParseFile, AddressOf OnBeforeFileParse
End Sub 'ExtractMBX

Private Sub OnBeforeFileParse(sender As Object, e As BeforeParseFileEventArgs)
   'in this event, we will extract the email, save it to a file
   'email file path
   Dim emailFile As String = "d:\temp\MBXFiles\ExractedFile" + mbxCounter.ToString("00000") + ".eml"
   'write out the file
   Dim contents As String = e.Contents
   Dim sw As New StreamWriter(emailFile)
   'tell ListNanny to ignore any further processing
   e.IgnoreFile = True
   e.Contents = String.Empty

   mbxCounter += 1
End Sub 

As always, if anyone has any questions, let me know through the Contact Us page. Thanks! Dave

ListNanny: Processing AOL and Comcast bounces

by Dave 4. March 2011 12:21

When AOL and Comcast bounce messages back to the sender, they generate a bounce known as an Abuse Reporting Format or ARF for short.

As a 10,000 ft overview, here's how it works.

The original email campaign sender composes an email, they record the unique Message-Id of each outgoing email,
and also, inside of the body of the email they add an unsubscribe link that looks something like this:

<a href=http://www.mycompany.com/newsletter/unsubscribe.aspx?emailID=123>To Unsubscribe, click here</a>

Why do they do this?
Well, by keeping track of the Message-Id they know when that specific message was
sent out, what campaign it belonged to, and even what email address it should be mapped to.
It really depends upon how much information you want to keep track of.

If for some reason the Message-Id is not returned in the bounce, another way of keeping track
of which email address bounced, is the Unsubscribe link.  In the Unsubscribe link, is an id (or key)
that maps back to the campaign databse. If we know the key of the email address that bounced, the sender can remove that email address.

We will look at this in depth below.

When this message is sent to an email address that no longer exists at AOL or Comcast,
a bounce is generated. Inside of that bounce are 2 attachments,

1) An ARF report, and
2) The original message that was sent (the one we composed above).

Using ListNanny to Process the Bounces

ListNanny has the capability to parse and read these ARF reports. A typical ARF report may look something like:

Content-Type: message/feedback-report;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
Content-Disposition: attachment;

Feedback-Type: abuse
User-Agent: AOL SComp
Version: 0.1
Received-Date: Mon, 25 Aug 2008 20:24:18 -0400
Reported-Domain: smtp.myserver.com
Redacted-Address: redacted
Redacted-Address: redacted@

The original sender can sometimes use this data to scrub their lists.
However, to prevent email addresses from leaking (due too fake bounces and unscrupulous spammers),
AOL and Comcast redact the original recipient's email address. 
To help cope with this, the one thing included with this bounce, is the original message that was sent.

However, again, AOL and Comcast remove the recipient's email address (they don't make this easy).

The way to handle this situation, is to use that Messge-Id and Unsubscribe link we recorded from above.

Processing the Bounces
What we need to do, is use ListNanny to parse the bounce and:

1) Find the ARF Report
2) Find the Message-Id value of the original message, and
3) Find the Unsubscribe link in the original message.

Once we have that information, we can remove the offending email address from our database.

Below is a code example that demonstrates this functionality.


static void AolARFBounce()
	//Load an AOL bounce
	NDR n = NDR.ParseFile("c:\\temp\\AOLArfReport.eml");

	//get at the ARF Report
	ARFReport arf = n.FindARFReport();

	if( arf == null )
		//check to see if it's a .dat file
		foreach( NDRPart part in n.BaseMessage.MimeParts )
			if(( part.Filename != null ) && (part.Filename.EndsWith(".dat")  ) )
				string body = part.DecodedText();
				arf = new ARFReport(body);


	if( arf != null )
		//A custom method we can use for processing ARF reports
		ProcessArfReport( arf );

	//lets find the Message-Id value of the message that was originally sent
	//Lets also find all of the hrefs in the original email
	if( n.OriginalMessage != null )
		if( n.OriginalMessage.MessageId != null )
			//Extract the messageId value, and process it
			string messageId = n.OriginalMessage.MessageId.Value;
			ProcessMessageId( messageId );
		NDRPart part = n.OriginalMessage.HtmlMimePart;
		if( part != null )
			string[] hrefs = part.HRefs();
			//loop through all of the Hrefs in our email to find the 
			//unsubscribe.aspx href. This href will contain our 
			//email address key
			foreach( string href in hrefs )
				Console.WriteLine( href );
				if( href.ToLower().IndexOf("unsubscribe.aspx") > -1 )
					//a method to process the url
					ProcessUrl( href );



static void ProcessMessageId( string messageId )
	//in this method we would update our database with
	//any statistics we want to record (or remove the emal address)
	//of the offending recipoient
static void ProcessUrl(string href )
	//this url will look something like

	//We will want to extract the "123" part, and update the database to remoe
	//the email address that maps to the key "123"

static void ProcessArfReport( ARFReport arf )

	//in this method, simply write out the results to the console screen.
	//Normally we would implement any business rule related to ARF processing here.

	//check to see if the ARF report was found
	if( arf != null )
		//write out the various properties
		Console.WriteLine( arf.ARFFeedbackType );
		if( arf.ARFFeedback != null )
			Console.WriteLine( arf.ARFFeedback );

		if( arf.AuthenticationResults != null )
			Console.WriteLine( arf.AuthenticationResults );

		if( arf.OriginalMailFrom != null )
			Console.WriteLine( arf.OriginalMailFrom );
		if( arf.OriginalRcptTo != null )
			Console.WriteLine( arf.OriginalRcptTo );
		if( arf.ReceivedDate != null )
			Console.WriteLine( arf.ReceivedDate );
		if( arf.RemovalRecipient != null )
			Console.WriteLine( arf.RemovalRecipient );
		if( arf.ReportedDomain != null )
			Console.WriteLine( arf.ReportedDomain );
		if( arf.ReportedUri != null )
			Console.WriteLine( arf.ReportedUri );
		if( arf.SourceIP != null )
			Console.WriteLine( arf.SourceIP );
		if( arf.UserAgent != null )
			Console.WriteLine( arf.UserAgent );
		if( arf.Version != null )
			Console.WriteLine( arf.Version );
		Console.WriteLine( "====================");
		Console.WriteLine( "write out all of the fields of the ARF Report" );
		Console.WriteLine( "====================");
		if( arf.ARFFields != null )
			for( int i=0;i<arf.ARFFields.Count;i++)
				NDRHeader field = arf.ARFFields[i];
				string name = field.Name;
				string completeValue = field.ValueComplete;

				Console.WriteLine( "{0}:{1}", name, completeValue );

I realize this has been an extremely brief entry, and many pages could be written on processing bounces.
This article it targeted towards those email senders who already understand the basic architecture of sending

Using Advanced Intellect's Products in VS2010/2012

by Dave 9. November 2010 01:46


The instructions below are for people using VS2010 and beyond.


As more and more people are upgrading to VS2010, and beyond, I am getting more of the following emails:

aspNetEmail (or any of our other products) doesn't work in later versions of Visual Studio. I usually get one of the following errors:

"aspNetEmail is not declared, it may be inaccessible due to its protection level."


"The referenced assembly "…" could not be resolved because it has a dependency upon System.Web (or some other internal .NET namespace).  Please remove references to assemblies not in the targeted framework or consider retargeting your project"

Usually these exceptions occur when the developer is building a client side application.

Starting in VS2010, VS tries to be too smart for it's own good.  When you build a client application (console.exe, winform, etc…) VS limits the number of namespaces you need access too, because it thinks you shouldn't need them.

To change this behavior, what you need to do, is change the target framework from a subset of namespaces, to all of them.

To change this, in VS.NET Solution Explorer, Right-Click on  your project, an select Properties.
On the Application tab, set the Target Framework to be ".NET Framework XX". By default it is set to ".NET Framework XX Client Profile".  Press Ctrl-S for save, and you are done.

Below are 2 pictures that display changing the target framework.

As always, if anyone has any questions, feel free to contact me.
