    Is there a way to bounce email back to the sender? (Outlook 2002/Office XP

    Hi,
    I am having trouble with spam (aren't we all!) and I had previously used IncediMail as my email program. They included an option to bounce the email back to the sender so that it appeared that my email address was not correct. I had to switch to Outlook and I was wondering if there is any provision for this in Outlook?
    Thanks.

    If it is real spam, all that would happen is that you will double the amount of (unnecessary) email traffic on the 'net, and *your* message would bounce back to you as the spammers forge the 'from' headers.

    Very little you can do I'm afraid, other than trash them immediately.

    Thanks, Leif for your response. I thought if a program like IncrediMail used it, it would be a good idea but I certainly do not want to add to the problem! <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>
