My SMTP Rejects my "Bounced" Emails

Yes, and even in such cases spam detection might block outgoing messages like my provider's does (unless you get it out within the time slot before getting black listed), e.g.. In such cases - if not resorting to a "cloud service" - the next thing to try would be sending a packed version like in a ZIP archive (what my provider recently suggested).

NB: I was forwarding spam for proper investigation ...

I occasionally like to use the Pegasus "bounce" option rather than the more common "forward." I've used this as a means to alert someplace like Amazon.com that someone is sending phishing emails in their name. I've had positive responses by bouncing such messages, for example, to spoof@amazon.com. I like to do it this way so the recipient gets to see the complete header without the complications that adding my header info will add, and, possibly, without deleting anything that might be helpful.

For the past few years, however, my SMTP server refuses those messages, because they sense, correctly, that I'm trying to send a message that's labeled as coming from someone else. They're trying to avoid being a spam forwarder, and I support that.

So, my question is: Is there a way for me to configure the bounce feature to accomplish what I want to do? Or is this a fools errand?

thanks,
