    This is not exactly a spam issue, but frustrating just the same.

    I use Thunderbird for my email and am generally well satisfied with it.

    A recent annoyance is the following:

    An email sender who I did not know prior to his correspondence started sending messages of a political nature. I do not mind open and free discussion of this type, but felt obligated to respond to opinions that differed from mine. He soon responded anger-ally and resorted to name calling and blocked all of my further correspondence.

    Ok, that suited me fine, since I was beginning to regard him as a bit of an intolerant fool.

    The problem is, he keeps sending me his messages while my responses to cease and desist are blocked: "Remote SMTP server has rejected address".

    Of course, I put a filter on his address to redirect them to trash, but I also put a Cease and Desist auto response to to his messages which causes "Delivery Notification: Delivery has failed" message coming in to my mailbox as a result of all of his new messages. The jerk continues to keep me on his address list but blocks my responses.:mad:

    I guess the easiest solution is to remove my response message and just let his future messages to go into the trash folder and let that be the end of it.

    Remove the auto-response, send his messages to the trash, and move on. There's nothing you can do to force him to stop sending you e-mail messages. Whatever "Cease and Desist" thing you're sending each other is not legally binding agreement.

    Exactly right! Just needed to describe the hubris of some dudes who believe they have the sole possession of truth and eschew the opinion of others.
    Thanks for listening.
