An e-mail question

Is there a way in Outlook to ban a person from sending you stuff? Preferably, to give them a message that just says, "Router failure" or some generic message like that rather than a "your message has been rejected" message?

Dont think so...you block email at the server (SMTP) level with a spam filter or something, not at the mailbox level.

Message? Where's that? I can't find it.

And do you know what message it sends out, if any? I just want to get a pesky vendor to give up and take me off his list without having him think I'm ignoring him.

Bob Dole has a utility at home that will allow you to manually check your POP3 server and reject selected email messages. It returns the email as undeliverable, just like if they had sent it to an invalid email address.

Bob Dole will try to remember to look for it at lunch if that's what you're wanting to do.

That actually sets your POP3 account up as a relay. You can format a message header to include a false return to address, then 'bounce' email off of mailboxes set to return rejected messages to their originator. No sweat off your back in this instance, as long as you don't own the POP3 server.... if you do, you're allowing traffic (trust me, it can get insanely heavy) to relay off your system.

The best way to handle spam is to drop it immediately at the POP2/IMAP/whatever server rather than reject. An excellent system = Praetor, but it is expensive. I'm sure there are other comparable ones out there.
