Bounce

Discussion in 'Windows 7' started by Ophelia, Jan 3, 2010.

    I used to use Mailwasher which gave the option to bounce mail. I see that
    Win 7 gives this option, but I can't figure out how to use it.

    Actions/junk email/safety options/blocked senders. At the bottom it gives
    the option to 'bounce' the instructions being 'when I click delete and
    block'

    Where does one do that??? I can block and I can delete, but both at once??

    Forgive my ignorance, but what email are you trying to bounce? Spam? I
    don't understand the point of that, since it almost certainly comes from
    a forged source or a forged address.

    Does it really matter which mail I am wanting to bounce?
    I just like to have the option.

    It depends . . . if you have a reason to bounce spam, but bouncing spam
    does not forward your goal while it does tie up resources, what's the
    point? And bouncing spam causes a cascade of bouncing bounce messages.
    Since the source is forged, your bounce likely goes to a bad address
    that will generate a bounce message back to you, which you will bounce
    as well.

    And if the spammer is using some poor soul's e-mail address, like the
    OP's, then continuous messages going there.

    Not windows 7. That's windows live mail I think, which is a free download
    and can be run on any windows operating system.

    Actions>>Junk E-Mail>>Safety Options

    "Blocked Senders" tab. The Bounce option is on the bottom.

    I'm opposed to bouncing because I think it just clogs up the mail servers.
    Half these bozos will be using invalid e-mail addresses so it suits no
    purpose.

    There should be a box next to that line of text where you click on it
    and a checkmark appears. It may be difficult to see because of WLM's
    color scheme.

    Ahh I see. I didn't understant that, thank you. Yes, I am using windows
    live mail. BUT I still can't see how to click on delete and block as it
    suggests.

    Thank you:) Yes, I know where it is, but I don't see how to comply. As I
    pointed out, I can block, or I can delete, but I can't find how to do both
    as it demands.

    Only because I thought that if what I wanted was incorporated into Live
    Mail, I wouldn't need both:)

    The big difference is that Mailwasher does the delete and/or bounce
    before the entire message or any attachments download to your machine. I
    like the idea of deleting things at the server first.
