Re: [Evolution] Future of Evolution

If this is true then you have provided the single most helpful answer to
my initial inquiry. I shall look more into how other email clients do
this. Perhaps a more skilled e-mail analyst might be able to tell the
difference between a truly bounced e-mail and an email bounced
artificially from an e-mail client.

Thank you for an insightful answer.

I repeat, you can't bounce a message at the MUA. It's like not
a phone call after you've answered the phone. You maybe can return to
sender, but it's not a bounce if it's been accepted by your MTA. If
been accepted by your MTA, to the spammer, he's got what he wanted.

However, it is a nice feature to make the spammer think that
your e-mail address does not exist.

If it's been accepted by your MTA, then no matter what you do with
it's too late, the spammer has in his eyes won.

Third, I would like a Bounce option for SPAM. Is this available?
will it be?

You can't do that at the MUA level, only at the MTA
