Following is an example of an Incoming Script that can process sign-ups, opt-outs, and bounce-backs in a single email account. Sign-ups must have the keyword "subscribe" or "signup" in the subject. Out-outs must have the keyword "unsubscribe" or "remove" in the subject. Hard bounces are removed from the mailing list while everything else, excluding soft bounces, are forwarded to an administrator.
[[if str_contains_any_i(-Subject-, "remove", "unsubscribe") or incoming_is_hard_bounce()]]
[[elseif str_contains_any_i(-Subject-, "subscribe", "signup")]]
[[db_add_row("my_signup_date_column", -Now-, "my_status_code_column", 1)]]
