Question Bounce Testing

I have a list of about 120 email addresses which I would like to bounce test. Is there a quick and inexpensive way to test them?

Thanks

Mike

In the past, I have used Email Hippo for this kind of testing. Note that, for some mail services, it is often impossible to get a definitive answer as to whether an address is valid or not. Email Hippo seems to be as good as any address validation service, but expect a few undetermined results. Pricing is reasonable.

Question Individual Msgs Name Verification

Email Hippo did the job culling out the bad addresses. Now I would like to send an individual message to each recipient and ask them to verify their names. I do not want to do a bcc since they won't be able to see their name in the TO: field. I would like to automate the process. Any suggestions on how to do that?

Thanks,

Mike

Possibly Thunderbird with the Mail Merge Add-On. I have not done this in a long time. Doing it manually (for a hundred or so addresses) would be boring but quite feasible.
