    Software to 'bounce' spam (6.00.2800.1123)

    Ages ago I came across some software which integrated into Outlook Express and could cause a spam message to be sent back to the originator, with the headers set to appear as if the original spam message had been "bounced" by the ISP mail server because the email account did not exist (apparently). Obviously the user whould have to identify a particular message as spam for it to work.

    Regardless of how useful this is in reducing the amount of spam received, I wonder whether anyone knows of this software and could say how well it works?

    Thanks!

    Hi, John ~

    Are you perhaps thinking of MailWasher?<UL><LI>MailWasher (AntiSpam Utility)
    <LI>Mailwasher 2.0
    <LI>Mailwasher Pro[/list]Many here will attest to its utility. I personally found it created yet another chore that saved little or no time and the bouncing just created more mail since all addresses/headerss were bogus and bounces in turn bounced back.

    John,
    Although I use iHatespam (which is a fairly new prog) it does have the so called bounce feature. BUT, see my <post#=255256>post 255256</post#> I haven't seen many or any attempts to bounce appear to succeed. <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Thanks, both! As far as I can remember, MailWasher wasn't the program I remember, but it seems worth a try. Sunbelt Software always recommend iHateSpam in their newsletter, so perhaps I should look at that too!
