Hi there,

i am looking to remove all accounts which has invalid accounts.

If I sent mail to my members I get lot responses from the mail server like:

Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender


This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

jumbo@gmail.com
host gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com[108.177.15.27]
SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<jumbo@gmail.com>:
550-5.1.1 The email account that you tried to reach does not exist. Please try
550-5.1.1 double-checking the recipient's email address for typos or
550-5.1.1 unnecessary spaces. Learn more at
550 5.1.1 https://support.google.com/mail/?p=NoSuchUser l7si5800810wml.66 - gsmtp

How can I remove such accounts with one click?

Do you have bounced email handling set up?

Accounts with bounced email will be put into a user state of "Email invalid (bounced)" - the system won't try and send them more emails until their account is fixed - it's designed for exactly the situation you are in.

If you instead want to try and identify problematic emails before you send to them, you'll need to use a 3rd party service which costs money. SparkPost can do this, Debounce is another service which is cheaper - see this thread: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/email-address-check.177481/
