Email Dilemma

#1
Hi! I'm having some issues with emails and my site, and was hoping to get some help on the best way to resolve them.

We would like to send out mass e-mails/newsletters to our existing userbase, and were using Mailgun with bd Mail to fit this purpose. It works well for everything else, but we have a high bounce rate. This is due to a huge mistake we made early on in our forum where we left email validation optional. As a result, we have presumably many incorrect email addresses. I know xenForo handles bouncing by default, but we have an hourly limit of 100 e-mails, and 6,600+ members to send e-mails to and check.

I know of e-mail verifying services, but even if we got a list of the e-mails from xenForo, any incorrect e-mails wouldn't update automatically, would they? Is there any validation service that integrates with xenForo to automatically update the email state (verified/not verified) of the users with incorrect addresses?

Going forward, are there any other recommended changes I should make?

Thanks for your time!
