Build 2735

Released February 2016

  • We underwent a cleanup of our local libraries for our Unix platforms: Solaris, HP-UX, AIX. This cleanup involved removing old and irrelevant symbols.
Unfortunately, this means that you may not be able to simply drop in this object. In those cases, no code changes are needed, just a recompile and relink.

Build 1451

Released July 2009

  • VS 2008 C++ Libraries required
  • Email Object has been recompiled using Visual Studio C++ 2008. To use Email Object for Windows, VC++ 2008 libraries must be installed on your computer. Running setup.exe will ensure the necessary libraries are installed. However, if you are installing the objects manually, you may need to install Visual Studio 2008 C++ x86 redistributable, which can be found in extras\redist.

Build 1431

Released June 2009

New Functionality
  • Other Change: New error code of 'B'.
  • A new feature has been added to Email Object to detect bad or undeliverable email mailbox names. Email addresses such as or will return a new error code of ‘B’. To see which mailbox names are included in this list, open the mdEmail.ini file and look under the [invalid mailboxes] section. As with all the other features of Email Object, this is completely configurable. To add or remove entries, simply edit the mdEmailConfig.ini file.

Build 1395

Released April 2009

  • The [invalid mailboxes] section of the mdEmailConfig.ini and mdEmail.ini was added to allow users to populate and detect invalid mailboxes
  • [invalid mailboxes]
  • # a plus sign adds the mailbox to the list of invalid mailboxes (e.g. "+NoReply" causes "" to return "Invalid Mailbox").

Build 1357

  • Email Object now uses the default DNS resolver specified on the machine. This enhances speed and reliability. The greatest difference in speed should be realized when an MXLookup is done on a VALID domain that has not been looked up previously and is not in the mdDomain.dat or the .ini files. It also performs faster for invalid domains, but the percentage increase will be smaller.

Build 1262

Released March 2008

  • Fixed Bug preventing Email Object from correcting emails with the incorrect syntax of “,com” using a comma instead of a period.

Build 1254

Released February 2008
