Re: [Evolution] bounce message...

yeah, bouncing mail back to spammers usually does nothing (assuming they
had a valid from address anyway). 

William, if there were such a feature, do you really want to emulate a
mail going back form "postmaster" or "mailer-daemon"?

And you think sending the message back to the spammer as if your address
didn't exist would work? haha, guess again.

If only we could be so lucky.

Nah, all this does is waste bandwidth.

ah, you know that you need control over a server, or a sympathetic
sysadmin to do server side spam filtering?  How about those who do not
have this, or the skill to set it up?  Clientside bounce would be a
*real* cool user friendly feature these days!

The bounce youa are refering to is a different type of bounce. 

One is a "redirect" of the mail (not changing any headers, except
possibly adding "Received" headers?) - the other is emulating
a server bounce (such as - "a user does not exist")... i think kmail
(from memory) has this "server bounce" feature and people use it to
"bounce" mail back to spammers, but in my opinion, its not something a
mail client (as opposed to a mail server) should be responsible for...
