    Like someone mentioned earlier, bounce was largely unsuccessful for spam and junk. Most mass email has false reply-to addresses, which bounce used, so you were essentially doubling your amount of spam. You'd select 20 junk mails, bounce, then get 20 replies that the address was invalid.

    I have no solution, but I *really* miss the bounce feature.

     

    I use bounce a lot (I went back to Snow Leopard to keep it). I have done lots of testing with bounce and I find it works very well.

     

    In my testing, I would simply ignore various e-mails, and they would continue to come for many months. I would then start bouncing the unwanted e-mails.  In most cases, the e-mails would stop after two or three bounces.

     

    Other posters have claimed that a technical savvy person can detect that the bounce is not "real", I do not dispute this.  I understand that a detailed analysis of a bounce can detect what it MIGHT be.

     

    In my many years experience with bounce I found it to be about 90% of effective.   And as such, it is an indispensable tool that I will NOT give up.

     

    If you ask Apple they may fix this.

    The bounce button was never overly effective in reducing spam, I agree. But I fondly used it to get rid of mass email sent by real people. I wonder if it can be replaced with an applescript?

    You can use AppleScript in combination with a Mail rule.

     

    First, copy the script below, paste it in the Applescript Editor and save.

     

    using terms from application "Mail"

              on perform mail action with messages theMessages

                        tell application "Mail"

                                  repeat with eachMessage in theMessages

      bounce eachMessage

                                  end repeat

                        end tell

              end perform mail action with messages

    end using terms from

     

    Then, in Mail, go to Mail > Preferences > Rules and select Add Rule.

    Below is an example of what you could specify, but you can modify it to your needs.

    In "Perform the following actions:", you select "Run AppleScript", click Choose and point to the saved applescript.

     

    Description: Spam

    If <all> of the following conditions are met:

    <Message is Junk Mail>

    <Sender is not in my Address Book>

    <Sender is not in my Previous Recepients>

    Perform the following actions :

    <Run AppleScript> /Volumes/2_Software/Applescripts/BounceMail.scpt

     

     

    Enjoy !!!

    Bounce was nice put didn't work well.  Many emails come from the same address. One solution is to use your security software to block the sender or go to Mail Preferences compose a rule to delete certain messages and just keep adding the senders. Or a rule to only accept messages from those in your address book.  My spam is down considerably.

    Like Chad, I miss the bounce feature.  Delete is for deleting mail, but the Bounce feature told someone on the other side that the mail address isn't valid.  It saved me hours every month, and I rarely got new spam from one of those addreses.  If you Reply, that tells the Spam-Sender that the email address is valid, and if you do that you're inviting more spam.

     

    I've also use SpamCop (spamcop.net) which tells the host that the address has been reported as spam.

     

    If anyone from Apple is listening - please return Bounce!

    This script will bounce anything that is remotely suspicious, even if it's wanted, without input from the User (aka Me).  Sometimes I end up with mail I want to see in the Junk folder.  Bounces let me be circumspect without throwing out the baby with the bathwater.

    I personally found that bounce functionality very useful. Any mass email platforms take this Bounce functionality and placed it as an invalid email in their systems. Once invalid, they are suppressed from the point of origin.

     

    Now my unique and private Mac account is receiving all these crazy promos from who knows where...and I cannot "bounce" them. Deleting does no good. They will send you more based on Received receipts, or Open receipts.

    Mass email platforms, Cheetahmail, Constant Contact, MailChimp etc...take this Bounce functionality and placed it as an invalid email in their systems. Once invalid, they are suppressed from the point of origin.

    I went to the Apple "suggestions" area and asked that they reinstate Bounce.  I referred to this thread and others where people are wondering about the same thing.  My thought is that if enough people ask for it, they'll give it back!
