    how to return unwanted nuisance email to sender as delivery failure?


    Please can someone assist me. I am receiving unwanted emails from an
    individual who has become a nuisance.
    *_I_want_to_know_if_there_is_a_way_that_I_can_set_up_my_Windows_Mail_to_automatically_return_the_message_UNREAD_&_if_possible_with_“Email_delivery_failure”_message_as_this_will_deter_the_person_sending_any_more._*
    I know I can block these to be put into the junk folder but the person
    still continuously is sending these offensive emails. I need to deter
    the person & somehow return these as Email Delivery Failures which will
    get the person to stop sending these continuous nuisance emails.I am
    using Windows Mail in Vista.
    Please Help.
    Thank you.

    not sure of your location but my first action, (in UK), would be to contact your ISP and see if they can block the mails at the server. dependent on the actual content and your location the ISP may even trace the mails and inform the authorities

    See if this is what you want:

    Although it's called Bounce Spam, you can also bounce messages from people
    you don't want to hear from.

    Windows Mail cannot do this, but there are a number of add-on programs that
    will. Use Google to search for them. One of the best used to be free but I
    don't know if it still is or not.
