Configure BoogiePOP Enterprise To Connect To Your POP3 Email Bounce Account

Using the Admin Utility, you must create a new BoogiePOP POP Account that BoogiePOP Enterprise will retrieve your bounced email messages from. The BoogiePOP POP Account that you create should be configured to use the POP email box where all of your "bounced" email messages are sent too. Typically, this is the same email account as the "FROM" email address of your outbound email messages. To create a new BoogiePOP POP account, follow the instructions below.

First, click the File menu and select "New POP Account" (see image below).

The following dialog will be displayed. Enter all of the required information as it pertains to you. For an explanation of each field, see the bottom of this page. For this article, I'll create a BoogiePOP POP Account called "Sales Newsletter".

The following image shows the information I entered. The information you enter should be different.

Click the "Save" button when you're done entering the required information. Your new BoogiePOP POP account will be created. In the image below, notice that a new POP account called "Sales Newsletter" is displayed in the BoogiePOP Admin TreeView Window.

POP Account Field Descriptions

Mail Account Name: This is the name that you'd like to refer to the new POP account as. The information you enter in this field will be displayed in the BoogiePOP TreeView Window under the "POP Accounts" folder. The "Mail Account Name" can be up to 20 characters in length.

POP3 Server: This is the name of the email server where your "bounce" email box resides. It can be a domain name such as "" or an IP address in string form such as "".

Login: Enter the username for your "bounce" email box here.

Password: Enter the password for your "bounce" email box here.

From Address: This is the email address of the "bounce" email box. All of your email bounces are sent to this email address.

Reply-To Address: The "Reply-To" email address is the email address that is used when your email recipients hit "reply" to your messages. When they hit "reply", their email message is sent to the "Reply-To" email box. It's highly recommended that you have two POP email boxes for all of your opt-in email communications. One email box for all of your "bounces" to go too, and one email box for all of your "replies" to go too. Having 2 POP email boxes for all of your opt-in email communications will allow all of the "email bounces" to end up in one email box, and all of the "replies" to end up in a separate email box. Doing this will improve BoogiePOP performance tremendously because BoogiePOP won't have to parse all of your "non-bounce" replies.

Ignore Addresses: The "Ignore Addresses" field isn't used by BoogiePOP in all cases. Sometimes BoogiePOP knows that a message is a bounce, but for some reason the email address of the recipient isn't in the position that BoogiePOP is expecting it to be in. When this occurs, BoogiePOP does a deeper scan of the bounced message to find the proper recipient email address. BoogiePOP doesn't want to pass back the From, Reply-To, or the Ignore Addresses of the original sender by mistake, so it checks for these while calculating who the original recipient was. You do not need to re-enter your "From" and "Reply-To" email addresses here, but you may use this field for any other email addresses that may appear in your outbound messages.

You can enter several email addresses in this field if you need too. Just make sure you separate each email address with a PIPE character. For example:|

The example above is made up of 2 email addresses. and

Account Inactive: Check this box to prevent BoogiePOP from retrieving messages from this POP account.

Title: help needed regarding BoogiePop installation and setting up   
Name: Rakesh Verma

Dear sir,

i am describing below my requirements and my experience with boogietools

case: i have an clasic ASP written website, i want to track bouncing mail address when i send newsletter to a list of mail id's.

my Experience : i installed "BoogiePop Enterprise Setup" and followed steps in
but unfortunately i could not get Pop Log under tree structure i can see "Bounce Service" and "Smtp Service" links over there.

my assumption : what i think is when you set up all settings and installed "BoogiePop
Enterprise Setup" on server then it will save all bounced mail id's to Access Database which have fields described in your article.

i am not sure BoogiePop is helpful in my case or not.
please guide me if i can use BoogiePop to fix my website.
also please describe me its price and subscription process.

my mail id is
