Bouncing spam considered harmful
Authored by: elemental on Jan 30, '04 09:58:04AM

You actually shouldn't do this at all. Spam is often sent with a forged Sender: address, which means your bounce does not go to the spammer, but to some innocent third party. Bouncing it back to them just adds to the problem, as they're already being inundated with real bounces, as well as angry e-mail and remove requests from the people who don't know better.
