    Is there any way to unbounce them so I can receive emails from the again.

    I did try to search but I never have any luck with them. :rolleyes:

    No, just reply back and apologize. Once an email is sent it's too late.

    Bouncing isn't permanent.

    When you bounce a mail it just gets returned to sender. Future mail from the sender is not blocked.

    I'm not exactly sure what you mean...you bounce messages, not senders. Unless you somehow managed to set up a rule to automatically bounce mail from a specific person (which is somewhat complicated to do), you should receive mail from them unless you manually bounce each message.

    Are their messages being diverted to your Junk mailbox? If so, just flag them as "Not Junk" and Mail will quickly learn to not junk messages from them. If the messages truly aren't getting through, I'd say that your ISP possibly flagged their domain as a spam generator. That's not due to you bouncing their messages, and you'd have to petition your ISP to have the sender's address or domain removed from their blacklist.

    Oh Ok

    I bounced one of their messages, and I thought that once you bounce an email address it bounces any later emails.
    Since it appears this is not the case, I wont worry about it.

    Thanks guys

    Aha I wish. I tried using that method for someone to get the message that i didn't want their junk, it didn't work so I had to set up rules.

    Mind you, now that I've had to go looking, I love rules. :D
