Hello ! :)

I have one server with only one web site : a board with more than 201 000 members and there must be many emails which are no longer valid in the database...

Is there a way in WHM or CPanel to find emails which are no longer valid ?

If not, how should I proceed to achieve this ?

Thank you ! :)

Yes. The emails appear in the WHM/Email section when they are sent. :)

Hello,

There are no features in cPanel & WHM that will scan through the email addresses in your script's database and verify which ones are legitimate/active. You may want to seek out feedback on a website that's more suited towards MySQL coding and development (e.g. StackOverflow).

Thank you.

If you send out a mass mail to your members, surely you get bounces for those dead email accounts? There is no way to tell from your forum's database which emails users registered with are still valid and which are not. Going by the bounces is probably the best, but clunkiest way, I think.
