    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!

    Then let me add my wishes as well, Please Please Please Apple, DO NOT reinstate bounce.

    Yes I too thanked them for getting rid of it. It was never one of their brightest additions.

     

    Cheers

    I too had much success with bounce.  I have searched and found a solution that has worked at successfully bouncing mail and I give credit to "Kevin" who orginally posted this fix.  If you are interested here are the steps:

    (if you want to delete the unwanted mail as well add the following:  delete eachMessage (inbetween the bounce line and the end repeat line).

    Restore “Bounce Message” functionality to OS X Lion Mail.app

     

    For some reason, Apple decided to remove the ability to bounce email messages from the OS X Lion version of Mail.app UI. They did, however, leave the API exposed, and it can be called via AppleScript.

    Instructions on how to create an Automator service that can execute the AppleScript (copied here just in case):

    1. Open Automator.
    2. Create a new service.
    3. Configure the service so that it has “no input” in “Mail”
    4. Drag “Get Selected Mail Messages” into the workflow
    5. Drag “Run Applescript” into the workflow
    6. Use the following AppleScript, then save the workflow with a name like “Bounce Message”.

       tell application "Mail"

          repeat with eachMessage in input

             bounce eachMessage

          end repeat

       end tell

    end run

    7. In Mail, select the message you would like to bounce. Then from the “Mail” menu, choose “Services”, then click on your new service. The message will bounce.

    THANK YOU !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • PJDFH Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Very welcome!!  I was determined to get the bounce functionality back one way or another!!!  It took me only a few attempts to figure out how Automator worked but there is a "play" button that you can press to make sure the script is correct.  If you press "play" and no error messages come up, then you can save it and use it in the "services" option from the Mail menu.

    What was bounce? Oh so long ago in this age of computing.

     

    Good luck with it. I use my Mac for a lot more than bouncing mail.

  • PJDFH Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I do as well, but being able to bounce unwanted mail was a nice feature for me.  It eliminated spam altogether.  There are plenty of us that used this feature and I am sure there are many that did not.  I posted this thread for those who wanted this feature back and found it useful.  For those who don't want it back or found it "useless" simply ignore it.

    PJDFH,

     

    Just wondering if you can help me with this.  I really appreciated the 'Bounce' option in Mail.  I've followed your instructions to write the AppleScript but it isn't working for me.  I'm new to writing AppleScript.  After following the instructions this is what I have:

     

    on run {input, parameters}

     

              tell application "Mail"

                        repeat with eachMessage in input

                                  bounce eachMessage

                        end repeat

              end tell

    end run

     

    Can you tell me how to edit the text appropriately or delete the workflow.  In Mail → Services, I see 'Bounce Message' but it doesn't work.  In the workflow I didn't see the numbers on the left side and I didn't see the colored text so I assume I'm doing something wrong.

    Thanks much!

    Look at the right hand side of the page under 'Mote Like This' and have a read. I am sure someone put up a link to a third party install that simply reinstalls Bounce in Mail, if you want it. Very clean and easy to install. You will see the link. Haven't got time myself to search them. Off to work.

     

    Good luck

    Doug,

     

    When you have typed all this in, were you able to press the green play button?  I found that at first it was working, but there was no indication of it working.  Try to send yourself an email and use the bounce script you created.  If it is working properly, you will get a "bounce" message back into your in box. 

     

    One other thing I did do was inbetween "bounce eachMessage" and "end repeat" command lines was to add the following:  "delete eachMessage".  The end script will look like this: (when you press the "play" button within the Run AppleScript window, they will align the correct way).  If you get no errors, then save it then try it again by sending yourself a "test" message.  You should then see it work and the test message will be deleted.  Let me know if you were successful.  -Cheers!!  PJDFH

     

    on run {input, parameters}

     

              tell application "Mail"

                        repeat with eachMessage in input

      bounce eachMessage

      delete eachMessage

                        end repeat

                        return input

              end tell

    end run

    This is great - thank you!  My sort my ermail so the bounced notices went into my Junk folder, and I didn't have to deal with the bounces.

  • Doug in Alaska Level 1 Level 1 (30 points)

    Yes, when I click the "Play" button everything aligns correctly.  I don't have a "Save" under "File".  I have "Save a Version".  Is "Save a Version" the correct way to save it?  When I return to this action to check it, the correct formatting is gone.

    Thanks much! 

  • PJDFH Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Try creating a new script with the above info and see if you can save it.  I ran into that issue first and reworked it and was successful.  You may also need to close and reopen mail.  Also make sure that it is active with a check mark in the services, services preferences, and placing a check mark in the newly created script.   Hope this helps.
