My understanding of how the SmtpClient send method works is it passes a mail message to an smtp server which you have access to. If it successfully passes this to this server, it is considered successfully sent.
What I want to do, is track bounced email. This makes me think that if I directly connect to the recipients mailbox (using SmtpClient send) I could "hand off" the message to this mailbox to let it deliver it internally.
This has actually worked in a few instances for me, but the ones that do "bouce" (exceptions thrown by SmtpClient send) I am unsure if they are actual bounces or is spam protection giving me the run around (greylisting, etc).
My real question is this. How can I track bounced emails by using my smtp server? Is this something that we can even do with .NET 2.0, or would I have to write my own smtp server? [:(]

Thanks for the reply. Its not really ideal to name my sender email as
firstname.lastname@example.org . Is there any other way to do it?
