    I'm sorry to hear that.  I am using it without a problem and have all the updates to Mountain Lion.  Just out of curiosity, did you happen to quit e-mail and restart after install?  If not, download it again, reinstall and restart. Good luck.

    I find it pretty funny that you dug this up over a year later to argue the point. The fact remains that for my usage, Bounce was very effective.

     

    You're entitled to your wrong opinion.

    The problem has yet to be solved

    You seem to be the only person on the planet that has a problem with my usage of the Bounce feature. You still fail to comprehend my usage of the feature.

  • georgevargas Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    This is really simple:  Those of us who have the older versions of mail (I still use Snow Leopard) and have the bounce feature, or were able to get the Restore-Bounce-Mail-Button-To-Lions-Mail-app to work (http://download.cnet.com/Restore-Bounce-Mail-Button-To-Lions-Mail-app/3000-20429 _4-75629050.html)

    keep using it as you please, or don't. 

     

    Everyone else who dislikes the bounce button, stop using it if you still have it, or stop worrying about it if you no longer have it.  If you are getting spam as a result of others using spam, suck it up, put an H on your chest and handle it.  It's just one of the many unexpected wonders of the great world wide inter-web.

    Let me give you a real-world example that just occurred two days ago. I got an email from a landlord for someone in CA telling me I was late on rent (I was obviously the wrong recipient, as I live in ID). I wanted to let this person know that they had the wrong email address (I get other people's mail quite frequently - you'd think people would know what their own email address is) so that they could get in contact with the correct person as it seemed to be very important. Instead of spending my time composing a reply, I would have simply hit Command+Shift+B to bounce the email, the sender would get a reply that looked like it didn't go through, and they'd most-likely verify the address with thier tenant.

     

    I don't use it to bounce mass emails, obvious scams, or newsletters I don't want, as I understand that the reply-to field is either incorrect or goes nowhere. So tell me, how is this a problem with anything but your perception of my usage? Using Bounce in this way is effective to get the message across and saves me time.

    Yes, I know I'm feeding the troll. I'm sure it just makes him feel better about his post count.

    Yawn. Get some sleep and move on Chad. There are only a couple who care. This is so old it's laughable, like your justification. The more you go on, the more ridiculous your knowledge of Bouncing Emails becomes apparent.

    Way to perpetuate the stereotype of Mac users being elitist a-holes!

  • kasemontana Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I agree with Chad. Who cames about hte semantics - it will do what I want it to do - that is bounce back unwanted spam that I recieved in the first place. Call me a spammer - who cares? PeterMac get me some whine with that spam! If I really wanted to spam, I would set up a home built linux box and automate it through some black holes, tunnels, and proxies... not from my mac mail program...

  • rivmo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    it's not a matter of semantics to me. I don't "bounce" things that are obviously forged. I personally only bounce things where I know the sender and the sender is ignoring my request that they stop harassing me.

     

    There are many ways to use it. And even in the case of the people who haplessly receive bounces to forged mail, something I personally am not sending bounces to, those people will become aware their account has been forged and a conversation may arise and they may decide to take action, even to the point of changing email addresses if they are at least made aware that's being done to their account, so the bounce may alert them. I myself would want to know if i were the victim of it too. But I do not favor bouncing anything and everything that is unwanted mail. Some do. The option to bounce should exist.

  • georgevargas Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    Yeah Kasemontana!  Show 'em what a real spammer looks like!  But Rivmo is right.  If I get spam and bounce it and it goes to the person that didn't realized his email has been hacked, spoofed or whatever it's called I'm sure they would want to know and appreciate it.  I had an AOL account and started getting email from people who were offended by some sexually explicit email that someone was sending from my account.  I would have never know if not for that and I reset my password. 

  • kasemontana Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    It is the other individuals responsiblity for their email - not mine.

     

    So thanks for the complement george! If that makes me a spammer for getting spammed - so be it...

    ????

    There is no 'bounce' feature in Apple Mail in Lion or Mountain Lion. It has been removed for a reason. If you wish to use it for some reason then run Snow Leopard and then post in the Snow Leopard forums. Someone there may help you with whatever problem you are having.

     

    Cheers
