The “Bounce” command is really useful for those times when you’re receiving spam mail that gives you no recourse to opt-out. Usually Ads and announcements have a link to unsubscribe, but if they don’t I usually just “bounce” the mail back to the sender and that usually causes the sender to take me off their mailing list. As of the release of Lion, apple (for some reason) has decided to take that functionality and the associated button away from the Mail app. To be more precise, they’ve removed the icon and the menu option, but the function is still there, buried in the guts of mail. You can get it back by creating the following Automator Service script. Follow the instructions below:
Now assuming you have two email accounts setup in Mail, send a test email from one account to the other. Then in the receiving account check for the new mail, select it, go to the “Mail” menu, under “Services” and select “Bounce Message”. This should bounce your test message back to it’s original sender (your other account) and delete it from your inbox. If you want to get really fancy you can even assign a keyboard shortcut to the “Bounce Message” Service. If for some reason you need to get rid of it, just delete the file under your personal Library directory (in finder hold down option while going to the “Go” menu and select “Library”), under Services folder.
