bounceHammer have been downloaded and used by many users and companies since the first release on March 2010 and has been EOL: End Of Life on February 29, 2016. Thanks for using bounceHammer for a long time. We are now providing Sisimai (the successor of bounceHammer, more faster, more higher precision of analysis) as a bounce mail parser library in BSD 2-Clause License.
messagetoken commnad of bounceHammer is for generating a messsage token.
The message token is a unique string (MD5 hash value) which is created from an Addresser (a sender's email address) and a Recipient (a recipient's email address), is an identifier of each record in a database.
This command has been installed in INSTALL-DESTINATION/bin directory.
messagetoken command take 2 arguments: an Addresser (a sender's email address) and a Recipient (a recipient email address).
The following screenshot shows that the command generates a message token from the Addresser(sender's): email@example.com and Recipient: firstname.lastname@example.org .
You will get the same message token string by using the printf program without using messagetoken command.
The format of a source string of bounceHammer's message token is the following:
STX(Start of Text) Addresser(Sender's email address) RS(Record Separator) Recipient(recipient email address) ETX(End of Text)
The message token is a MD5 hash value which created from the earlier text (All characters are written in lower case).
Use the md5sum program if the md5 program is not in your system.
