Architecture



BounceStudio Enterprise consists of 3 applications.

  1. BounceStudio Admin Utility - The BounceStudio Admin Utility is what you use to create new BounceStudio "POP Account" monitored items and "File System" monitored items, configure BounceStudio Bounce Service and BounceStudio SMTP Service settings, view monitored item bounce statistics, etc. You can start the BounceStudio Admin Utility from your Windows Desktop Start-Programs menu.


  2. BounceStudio Bounce Service - The BounceStudio Bounce Service runs as a Windows Service and does not have a Windows user interface. The only thing you can do with the BounceStudio Bounce Service is Start/Stop it through the BounceStudio Admin utility or Start/Stop it through the Windows Service Control Manager applet. The BounceStudio Enterprise Bounce Service is the application that monitors your "POP Account" monitored items and "File System" monitored itemss, checking for bounced messages. It's also the application that logs your bounce data to your ODBC enabled database, or remote website, and queues up your SMTP Forward messages.


  3. BounceStudio SMTP Service - Like the BounceStudio Bounce Service, the BounceStudio SMTP Service runs as a Windows Service and does not have a Windows user interface. You can Start/Stop it through the BounceStudio Admin utility or Start/Stop it through the Windows Service Control Manager applet. It's responsible for sending any SMTP Forward messages that the BounceStudio Bounce Service queues up to be sent.
