C Style API



For the optimum in performance, we recommend using the C Style API instead of going through the ActiveX wrapper. If your development environment doesn't support calling standard Win32 style dlls, then you'll need to use the ActiveX wrapper that comes with BoogieBounce API instead.

If you're only interested in checking your email messages for bounces, determining the type of bounce, and extracting the affected email address, then all you will need to be concerned with is the bbBounceCheck() Function.

Visual Basic Users
You'll notice that the C Style API documentation talks about null terminated character arrays for the subroutine parameters. Don't worry about what null terminated character arrays are. Just treat these as regular string data types. Check out the VB6 sample within the SAMPLES directory to see how the bbBounceCheck function, and other functions, are declared and called from VB.

PowerBASIC Users
A null terminated string is basically the ASCIIZ data type. Check out the PowerBASIC sample within the SAMPLES directory to see how the bbBounceCheck function, and other functions, are declared and called from PowerBASIC.
