The program "Mailwasher" (http://www.mailwasher.net/)
has an interesting feature that lets you "bounce" email
back to spammers.

The end effect is that, to the spammer, it appears that
your email address is no longer valid. With any luck,
this will cause them to remove you from their mailing
lists.

Would it be possible to make a plugin for Squirrelmail
that creates a button that will bounce spam email back
to its sender?

Thanks!

    Spammers almost always fake their FROM information. Bouncing a mail to a spammer is 99.9999% of the time useless. That said, there is a Bounce plugin for other similar uses.
