    Question Fake mail bounce message..

    One of my known person sends me mails that makes me annoyed. I am badly in need of a setup where i could send fake mail bounce messages but the from field must not display my id (obviously) rather it must show the id that makes him believe that its from server autogenerated.

    This is to get relieved from his torture (good cause) and not for anything else. Note: He sends to my gmail id.

    Why not just be straight forward about it? Ask that they at least make an attempt to cut down or stop willingly. If they don't, block them.

    Just block the person, if you start bouncing many messages back you would risk possibly being deemed a spammer or to have a broken email or something and get blacklisted.

    Best idea is definitely to rather block...

    I broke up with that person and not in good terms rather I talk with him. So if i could bounce back the messages, he stops sending mails at some point realizing that i no longer use that id. Rather if i block, he will be in a feeling that hez succeeding (winning) everytime he sends mail to me..plz suggest.. sorry for the late reply..

    If you broke up with him, why do you care what he thinks? Just block him and forget him. Get him out of your head.

    If they have sensibly set all bounce messages to go to their spam folder (since 99% of such messages are spam anyway) then they will not even see any such message of you do create one.
