Re: blocked mail

Yes, that's how Windows Live Mail works: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-security/how-do-i-block-an-email-address-on-my-windows-mail/145c737f-5311-47a4-a055-970ccd4ddadc?auth=1

The sender won't be informed about what WLM does after receiving the mail.
Bounces are generated by the mail server, not by the mail client. So you need to deactivate your mail address at your e-mail provider. Then, alas, you'll receive no mails at all.

I don't know of any mail provider that has the option of bouncing only specified senders. But maybe your mail provider has such. Their customer service can tell you.

okays
then no use in blocking a particular mail id
since almost all of us check our junk folder as nowadays some imp mails do land up in junk
but what mail does the sender receives
does he receive any bounce back mail or not
if not then it simple means that sender knows he has sent the mail and received by the receiver
and the receiver does have the tendency to check what the blocked sender has written
anyways thank a lot
take care

Re: tendency to check what the blocked sender has written

That's doubtful, for 2 reasons:
1. The receiver can just as well have written a rule to delete the mail in stead of moving it to a junk folder.
2. Personally, I usually don't read the mail in my junk folder. If I see the sender and the subject line, I know enough to skip it and later delete it without ever opening it. Do you really want to say that you open and read every mail in your junk folder?
