If you were a fan of the ‘bounce’ feature in the previous version of Mail, you may be disappointed that it has been removed in Mail Version 5.x

If you want the feature badly enough, you can either

1. Use this add-on for in Lion
Restore Bounce Mail Button To Lion’s Mail


2. Use Mozilla’s instead of Mail, and get the ‘Mail Redirect‘ add on.

  1. Hi, I’ve downloaded the Mail add-on but cannot find the button to drag into my toolbar. Can you help?

  2. Awesome add-on, thank you. I just got a mbp and was totally bummed that “bounce” was not standard in Mountain Lion’s mail application. Been using it because my old college continues to email me even though it’s been 12 years since I graduated and I want nothing to do with their spam but they just can’t seem to get the message so it’s with more than a little enjoyment that I bounce their crap right back to them.
