Can somebody recommend me a mail program, that has the ability to bounce back spam emails? It used to be available in mail up until the lion version, and then for some reason it disappeared, or is hidden and I can find it

It's a life saver, you get a spam email hit bounce, and with a bit of luck the clown sending it thinks the email address is wrong, and stops emailing you.

But do remember that often the apparent sender address in spam emails is not really the person/organization that sent the email

I can understand that Ken, and on the off chance that its not a falsified address you achieve the goal of making them think that the address doesn't exist
