How do I "block" an e-mail from somebody, and actually bounce it back to them, or at least automatically reply to a specific e-mail address stating that e-mail is not being accepted from that address any longer? Is there an option within Yahoo, or perhaps Outlook/Outlook Express (or Mozilla) that will do this. Is there a program that I could download to do this for me?

There is no way - the protocol doesn't allow for it.
The mail server gets it and has to be processed either by spam filters in the server, or when the email hits your email client.

Try the incredimail email client. It has a bounce feature. You have to enable junk filtering to have this feature enabled. I have tried a lot of email clients and this is my favorite. There is a free and pay version, after using the free version for over a year, I upgraded to the pay version. You can get it here

I've never tried it but there is an app for Qmail (server side) that when an email is received at the server, the mail program sends a msg back to the sender asking for confirmation. Once confirmation is received back from the server (as a response to the email), Qmail will add that sended to an 'ok' list, thus allowing all following email thru from that addr. Emails that don't get confirmed go into a 'deny' folder, not allowing them thru going forward.

ie...Spam senders are porked cuz they usually don't respond to emails and thus get blocked...

the bad part is that legitimate folks will be like WTF...but once you work thru the initial confirmation, it would prolly work great..

again, this is on the server-side, so you would need a mail provider that offers this.

...can't remember the name of the Qmail mod :(
