That's what a reject bounce does in Outlook these days. If you don't like this simply send an email to the sender telling them not to send you a message. Or you can choose to delete all such messages if you don't want them to appear in your account.

The Outlook client being used at my workplace (not sure which version) is receiving the following response:

Your message .... was deleted without being read ...

It's the Outlook client at hand that's doing this, because it's interfering with the read receipt feature (Message read green check | message not read / red x )

Also, vacation responses are being filtered, because when I replace reject with vacation, nothing is received at Outlook at all.

When Fastmail had a bounce button, bounces worked beautifully, regardless of email service.

I wish Fastmail didn't remove the bounce button, because reject is not the same, and in some cases, completely counter-intuitive.

So, evidently, there's no way to do a bounce universally. or to Outlook.

Will Fastmail consider bringing back the bounce button?

NO they wont do that as it got used for the wrong reasons.

I think this should work, it just sends like an auto reply.

if header :contains ["subject","from"] ["your recipient@.com"] {
vacation :days 1 :addresses ["your required address@whoever.com"]
text:
Hello...your message
.
;
}

This is something completely different -- it's an auto reply, and displays my the same address it was sent to in the auto-response.

For the intended purpose here, a bounce, this doesn't accomplish my intended purpose. It says "Auto:", it comes from my email address, I can't put in the text the message wasn't received, that the email address is invalid, etc.
