moderated Re: #suggestion Let sender or moderator know that a message has been flagged as spam #suggestion


 

Andy,


A 'bounce' message to the sender is not a good idea when spam was detected.  Replying to spam confirms to the sender that you exist and maybe saw their message.

That's true of a reply by the addressee.

But I don't think it is true of either a rejection or a deferred bounce by the receiving service. Confirming that the service exists doesn't tell the spammer anything they didn't already know, by virtue of connecting to deliver the message.
