How to bounce/redirect mail

As I've mentioned, forwarding mail into a spamtrap registers your email address as being a spam source; not good. Instead, we want to use the redirect or bounce feature available in a number of mail programs.


Many thanks to all the contributors, listed in parentheses.


AOL's integrated email client

Redirecting mail is not available. (Dave Goldsmith)


Eudora

Select the message, go to the "Message" menu, choose redirect, fill in the address, and choose send. (Brian Corcoran and Erik Wheeler)


Evolution

Select the message. In the "Actions" menu, choose the "Forward" submenu (not "Forward message", the "Forward" submenu). Pick "Redirect", fill in the "To" field, and press "Send". (Johannes Ullrich)

OS/X Mail.app

With the email message open or selected, go to Mail's 'Message' menu and select 'Bounce to sender' or 'Redirect'. If you use this frequently, go to the "View" menu, choose "Customize toolbar", and add a button for "Redirect". (Marion Bates)

Microsoft Outlook 97

Double-click on the message so it opens in a new window. Click on Tools->Resend This Message. A warning will appear about you not being the original sender of the message. Click Yes. A message window appears. Update the To: field and click on 'Send'. (Dave Goldsmith)

Pine

For a single message, highlight the message and press "b" to bounce it. Enter the target address and press enter. For multiple messages, select all the messages you'd like to bounce with either ":" to select them one at a time, or ";" to select multiple messages by message number, subject, body text, etc. Once selected, press "a", then "b" to Apply the Bounce command to all of them. Enter the target email address. Once done, press ";", then "a" to Unselect All selected messages.
