    Is there a way to delete the service that isn't working?  "Bounce Mail" was listed in services and was checked.

    Thanks

    PJDFH,

     

    Works like a charm and I really like having this option available again.  Thanks much for your help!  Mistake was on my part.  Your instructions were correct and worked well once I noticed the problem.  I chose "Get Specified Mai Items" rather than "Get Selected Mail Items" when setting this up.

    Sorry about this but it has been a good learning experience.

     

    Take care,

    Doug in Alaska

    I have been following this discussion since I too am frustrated with the absence of Bounce. I just upgraded to Lion only 2 mounths after these posts. When I run the script I get an error message that says it doesn't understand the word/action bounce. Could they have blocked it. I used the App store to get my copy of Lion.

    I am so glad it does not work for you, thank you.

    This is the one I use and it works. 

     

     

    on run {input, parameters}

     

                   tell application "Mail"

                repeat with eachMessage in input

                       bounce eachMessage

                       delete eachMessage

                                   end repeat

                                   return input

                   end tell

     

     

            return input

    end run

    Thanks zkyak. I think this one may be working for me. I have 2 versions of this service and I am getting quickly mixed up. I was also in the middle of upgrading to iCloud from dot me. An extra Mail account was possibly screwing up the works. Its seems to work now; however I haven't been able to edit my services list. In other words I have 2 different versions and would like to get rid of the extra. .  Love the bounce - just the thought of it.

    Ha, that's funny. Even if you meant it. I see a bunch of anecdotal evidence that it works. And of course it helps with old girlfriends. For those that say it can't possibly work, what about a smart program that spammers use to refine their lists to make them leaner and resellabe? Programs that see bounced mail and dropped the returned mail from a list? In fact are you a spammer? Maybe I don't know much but how can a bounced mail indicate such an address exits? A statement that ignores exactly how a program like this works.  That seems ignorant to me. At any rate I don't think any mail server cop can tell me I  am a nucance when I pro actively protect my privacy. We all want the Internet to work better don't we? Not that this might develop into a 2 edged sword, none the less. One more question before I take my Freedom & Justice Cape out of the dryer; were the programmers who wrote Tiger or whenever this first appeared, were they baffoons with nothing but time on their hands? Because I read reviews when it first came out how brilliant it was. Apple has used a different spam controls from the get go but all things break down and change. Its obviously something you don't have a press release about. Let me hold on to the glorious past please. But more than that- spam is a seriously bad thing. And many people recognize that. It you are dilengently working on that and not trying to restrict my freedom (not to mention my well being)- well by all means - carry on.

    By the time your mail client bounces it your mail server has accepted it, so the sender knows it is a real address.

     

    But now that you have elected to become a spammer I doubt that you are concerned about that.

  • PJDFH Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    On the contrary Csound1.  Since I started using the API to bounce mail after it was removed during a system update, I have ZERO, I repear ZERO unwanted emails.  This does not make me a spammer and it DOES indicate to the sending server that the email address they sent to is an invalid email.

     

    My suggestion to you is that if you don't want to bounce unwanted emails back, then don't.  I could care less what your opinions are of the feature and that you were glad it was removed.  It should still be there for those of us who used it and liked it, and if you don't want to use it, then don't.  Besides, if you didn't care for bounce in the first place, why the **** are you sticking your nose into this thread???

  • Csound1 Level 8 Level 8 (41,220 points)

    Because I have a strong distaste for spammers, whether they mean to be or not, and using bounce makes you one more ******* spammer

  • PJDFH Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Well bouncing reduces spam.  It does not make me a spammer when I bounce a freaking email that was unsolicited to begin with!  If you had such a strong distaste for spammers to begin with, you would do something to stop from getting spam now wouldn't you????

    When you bounce it (in most cases) goes to some innocent 3rd party who had his email address spoofed by a spammer, that's how you get to be a spammer yourself. The real spammer just gets confirmation that the email address (yours) works. How does this help at all?

  • Allan Eckert Level 8 Level 8 (46,490 points)

    Well bpunce is certainly not the solution you seem to think it is. Why do you think it is being done away with anyway?

    You'll never get it through their heads mate, even though Bounce has been dropped because it now defeats the purpose it was meant for. They believe it works like they believe pixies in their computer run the system.

    Sadly you may be right, and it's even more annoying when they boast about becoming spammers themselves.
