Re: [Evolution] Bounce to sender...

Just wondering if a bounce to sender function will be implemented in

Sorry if this has already been asked :).

I just searched and found previous discussions about that. Check
for the full discussions.

Attached is a mail with a full thread that may describe it. Or what you
cannot do with bounced messages... ;-)

A thread starting on 2002-09-25 "bounce message..." discusses it even
more. There is a way to bounce messages:
 Actions / Forward / Redirect

That's more a redirect of the message though, and depends on what you
actually wanna do if that would work for you. (You did not say anything
about what you are trying to accomplish.)


char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0  ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4";
main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1:
(c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}

Is there a way to have evolution bounce mail back to the source and make
it appear that it was never received?

However and in whatever manner you you would wish to distort this, the
receiving mail server has already given a "receipt" at the moment it
either accepts (250) or discards (550) the sender or the data.

That depends on the mail server. Some are more inclined to accept a
piece of mail and bounce it later; some reject it immediately.

So the original poster could certainly forge a plausible bounce message.
If the goal is to fool a human correspondent, that might work. But if
the goal is to reduce spam, then forged bounces are unlikely to help, as
most spammers don't use real return addresses.
