Create a filter that triggers on his mail
Set as action, Send automatic reply
Use something like this as template:

%From='"Postmaster" <youraddress>'%-
%Subject="Undeliverable mail"%-

This the mailserver for <insert your ISP>, I'm sorry but I couldn't
deliver the message cited below because of no such user. This is a
permanent error

================ Original message ================================

This trick is too simple.
So emailer can recognize it with easy.

Three important moments. Real "Mail delivery failed" message:
1. Doesn't contains Reply-To
2. Contains empty Return-Path
3. Must be sent from service email like this:
 Mail Delivery System <Mailer-Daemon@XXXX.XX>

I don't know how can i emulate such real message using TheBat only...
I know the trick is a tad too simple, but it's the only thing that can be done with TB.

A message without Reply-To is easy, when you don't enter a reply-to address in the account properties, you defaults to no reply-to address, except for when you enter it in the folder properties or via the %ReplyTo macro.

A message without Return-Path can't be done with TB, you can alter it, but otherwise TB will use the from address as Return-Path.

The From address can easily be changed with the %From= macro, but as some ISP's don't react kindly to users using fake addresses, I don't suggest to anybody that he has to use a fake address in e-mail.

Apart from the above, bouncing has little use as spammers generally use fake (or somebody else's) addresses, so bounces don't reach them, nor do they take the trouble to update list of addresses.

My mail server is refusing some addresses for years, but I'm still getting some nitwits trying to send mail to them, even though the mail is refused during the smtp protocol.

Thanks Roelof for all your help, I did what you told me to do and as far as I can see I am getting less and less junk mail. Thanks once again  :)
