How to restore the Bounce feature in Mail

Hi, many of you may have noticed that the Bounce feature in Mail is no longer available in Lion.

It was a good thing to have when you had lots of spam in your mail.

Here’s how to restore it using Automator:

1. Open Automator.

2. Create a new service.

3. Configure the service so that it has “no input” in “Mail”

4. Drag “Get Selected Mail Messages” into the workflow

5. Drag “Run Applescript” into the workflow

6. Use the following AppleScript, then save the workflow with a name like “Bounce Message”.

on run {input, parameters}

tell application “Mail”

repeat with eachMessage in input

bounce eachMessage

end repeat

end tell

end run

7. In Mail, select the message you would like to bounce.  Then from the “Mail” menu, choose “Services”, then click on your new service.  The message will bounce.

🙂
