Thanks Mark. According to that, there are currently 12 bouncing members. 
But when I run the more detail script below, I get 30 bouncing members. 
What's the difference between the two?

(Oh, and for the record, there's only two Hotmail, and one each AOL and 
Yahoo, addresses in the 30.)

Thanks for the feedback. I look forward to many frustrating 

I currently get Uncaught bounce notifications, and process them by hand 
as they come in. I also see unsubscribes. Is there a way I can be 
notified of *caught* bounce notifications?
