    I tested this method with Mountain Lion OS X 10.8.1 and it works flawlessly.

    Very good. So now you are an up to date spammer. Well done.

    Spammers do not use their own address, they use one that they 'spoofed'  An innocent 3rd party gets your bounce, the spammer knows nothing about it. So you have become a spammer.

    I'm sorry Peter and Csound.  It would be wrong of me to assume you are a pair of dimwits versus psychics.   Seeing as you don't know me or how I use or don't use the bounce button and I don't believe in the psychic phenomina, it only leaves me with pondering nitwiterry.  My post states that I tested it on OS X 10.8.1, not that I bounced "spam".  You could ask me instead off assuming but,  the *** out of you and me cliche is self evident. Well done by the way.  As posted on one of the earlier pages, bounce can be used in ways outside of what has your replys read as though your undergarment is knotted and wedged in an uncomfortable place.  Well done. But once again, that is an assumption on my part just like you accusing me of being an upto date spammer is an assumption on your part.  The bottom line is that this method works, works in mountain lion and your free to continue your crusade with or without the knots.  Your crusade may be more affective without the assumptions but then you'd miss the knot in your undergarment.  Wait, I'm sorry.  We already established that was an assumption on my part.  We'll done!

    Hmm, an uneducated illiterate spammer. Things keep getting worse for you. Do you pirate your data and programs as well? Seems you are happy to be a spammer so not much use responding to your uneducated trolling.

     

    Bye bye

    Sigh, condescending Peter Mac misunderstood what i was saying, so I'll explain it one more time and after that I wish you people repeating your little links would get the point.

     

    The point of my using bounce (and do we have a "reject" thing you mentioned?) is not about "spammers" who are unknown. It is about people I know who are deliberately sending me repeated messages and I happen to know they are not forged, Einstein.

     

    I know when things are forged. But in the case of deliberate jerks sending repeated harassing messages which are not forged, they need to get the message and the only way for them to stop sometimes is to think they cannot get it to me. And the only way I know to do that is to have the block button on AOL or "bounce" with my cloud/mobileme. I do not use bounce to send to people who have been the victim of having their name used by forgers.

     

    I have been on the internet since 1994. I am totally aware of when a message is forged, when it is that sort of spam you are speaking of and I do not "bounce" THOSE. On the other hand it is helpful even for a person who has had their address forged to KNOW when it is being done to them so they can try to see what they can do about it. I personally like to know when my own address is used that way and pray it won't be.

     

    But i primarily need bounce for situations when either a personal acquaintance (remember that not everyone who may get your address is a nice person!) is harassing me with emails or else a politician or other third party got a hold of my email address and ignored attempts to unsubscribe and keeps sending and are not forged.

     

    I hope you get it now because if you don't, I don't want to see a hundred more lists of URLs about forged emails. There are reasons some need bounce. It is about known senders who are not forged. And we DO typically know the difference. I always know when one of my friend's accounts has been hijacked and then i send them an email telling them about it or if it's a forged message I don't "bounce"; that's not my needed use. I rarely need it but when i need it, it's really helpful. It has made a difference several times and stopped harassment. And the only thing I like better is AOL's block sender.

     

    I'm sorry you don't get it and think you know everything but some of you don't understand the point of using it and need to stop telling off those of us who do. I've re-added bounce to my mountain lion system.

    Rather then using bounce, what I use that my ISP provides is a blacklist. Whatever address I place in the blacklist is stopped by their service never to be seen on my Mac.

    Hey George, ignore them.  They'll go away and take their snarkiness with them.

    I'm not interested in a black list. I want the sender to know and stop sending in the cases I referenced and it works.

     

    With AOL block sender, it typically sends a note back to the sender telling them their message did not get sent. Same thing I think happens with Yahoo if you tell it to delete messages from a particular address. I want the person to get a message back telling them their attempt to force a message on me did not get to me. That's why I like Mail's bounce in limited situations. I probably use it three or four times a year at most but when i do need it, it's helpful. I use spam filters for spammers, or sometimes i contact their domain but true spammers are sort of a lost cause. They don't even know who they are sending to. I'm bouncing to people who KNOW they are sending to me and who I know are not forging the message.

    George, if you ever get a set of repeated private emails haranguing you from Peter Mac, click bounce. That's what it's for. LOL

    Sigh!! As long as you get a thrill from your little bounce button, then, we'll, whatever turns you on I guess. lol

    Happy spamming.

    George - Thanks for the suggestion but I could not get it to work in 10.8.1 or 10.8.2. Still looking for a solution. Will post back if I find one.
