Webmail filters

Can anyone explain what the webmail filter "Reject with reason" does. Rejected to where? What reason? Is there a list somewhere that explicitly explains any or preferably all of them?

    I am sorry to hear that you are having trouble. That message doesn't ring a bell with me. Would you be able to send a screenshot of what you are seeing? Also, you may want to refer to this link for information on our email settings. .

      No problems, but I should have said - "filter actions" as listed below.

      File into
      Copy into
      Redirect to
      Mark mail as
      Set color flag
      Reject with reason
      Add IMAP keyword
      Remove IMAP keyword

        Thanks for the clarification. "Reject with reason" is an action you can assign to a filter. It lets you generate a "bounce" message to a particular sender that you don't want emails from. You can type a message that you want to appear in the "bounce" message in the empty box or you can leave it blank to send a generic bounce message. Hope this helps.
