    "Works Perfectly!"

    October 11, 2013  |   By SashineB

    Version: Restore Bounce Mail Button To Lions Mail 1.0

    Pros

    I am so glad I found this. "Bounce" works as it should, and it was so easy to set up. I added the icon to the Mail toolbar easily, and my tests all "bounced" back as they should. Thanks very much for providing this way of restoring the feature to Mail! It is very helpful for rejecting unwanted mail (not Spam, but annoying emails) and for giving the originator a clue not to bother again. Works perfectly!

    Cons

    None at all.

    Summary

    A very useful tool, and an easy way to implement it.

    This works well with the latest update in Mountain Lion (OS 10.8.5)

    Updated on Oct 24, 2013

    My happiness has been short-lived. This feature worked perfectly on Mountain Lion's latest update. But it does not work at all on the new Mavericks OS. Any chance of a version for Mavericks, please?? Thanks.

    "Stops repeated unwanted emails but add to instructions!"

    July 23, 2013  |   By MChSubs

    Version: Restore Bounce Mail Button To Lions Mail 1.0

    Pros

    Easy to use once it has been set up but...

    Cons

    Add to the instructions that after installing the script in the Library, the user must install the button on the toolbar.
    To do this start Mail,
    go to View > Customise toolbar...
    and drag the button up to the toolbar to install it.

    Once this is done, you can bounce your unwanted emails.

    Summary

    Users who say this is not good software will probably not have realised that they needed to go through the process of installing the button on the toolbar.

    "Shazam!!!!"

    January 18, 2013  |   By QuestOnZ

    Version: Restore Bounce Mail Button To Lions Mail 1.0

    Pros

    Took mere minutes to download, install and bounce. What may be obvious to most, I myself did need to take pause to scratch my head as to why the button did not appear at once in my Mail toolbar. I then realized that I'd have to look for this fun new icon under View, Customize Toolbar and then painstakingly drag it there manually.

    Cons

    None for me. Use is for bullying and harassment email and other more minor irritants rather than massive spam control.

    Summary

    Stefan Everhartz is my hero.

    "Lousy - no instructions"

    October 28, 2012  |   By jimwww

    Version: Restore Bounce Mail Button To Lions Mail 1.0

    Pros

    None that I know of.

    Cons

    There is no 'bounce' added. I cannot find a file added to mailscripts.

    Summary

    I do not know why this is even offered as a solution.

    "Excellent !!! Thank you~!!"

    August 28, 2012  |   By winston2015

    Version: Restore Bounce Mail Button To Lions Mail 1.0

    Pros

    Does just what it claims. Makes a sender think the email address is invalid. Of course it isn't going to work with spambots but that was never it's purpose. It sure as heck does not 'forward it to an innocent bystander'as clueless jimcarr2 claims, it goes back to the sender. If it's so 'useless' what are you doing looking for it and commenting on it. Some people just have too much time on their hands and head up their arse.

    Cons

    None, it does just what it claims. I dont't get people's gripes it's the same function mail.app always had until lion -as far as I know. -I started using OSX with Leopard.

    "Bounce works great!"

    June 8, 2012  |   By Skiierguy1

    Version: Restore Bounce Mail Button To Lions Mail 1.0

    Pros

    Brings back this useful (but sometimes underused) function.

    Cons

    Mac Lion developers dropped the ball when the developed this new OS version. Restore Bounce Mail Button fixes their stupid mistake.

    Summary

    Easy to install, but directions need to be clearer on how to set this up (Go into 'View', then to 'Customize Tool Bar'. Find the blue 'Bounce' icon and simply drag it to and drop it into your toolbar at the top of the Mac Mail app'.)

    "Quickly get rid of annoying emails from "known" sender."

    March 31, 2012  |   By bndekker

    Version: Restore Bounce Mail Button To Lions Mail 1.0

    Pros

    Easy and fast way of getting rid of stupid emails from stupid people.

    Cons

    None, if you use it the right way. NOT FOR SPAM!

    Summary

    Apple should have given people the option of using this. For all those that say it does"t work: it does if you want to "bounce" someone with a valid email address. For all other (frequent) unwanted emails use "rules" in Mail preferences.
