Actually, I see bounces from AOL all the time for lots of reasons
ranging from "non-existent user" to "we didn't like a URL in the body
of your message". What they don't bounce is messages they accept and
put in a 'spam' folder.

Which was just submitted as a bug and duplicates your RFE of a couple
of weeks ago at

It doesn't really help to re-submit what is really a feature request as
a bug. It just clutters up the tracker and makes the task of fixing
things seem more daunting than it really is.

If you're just trying to ping us to see if we're paying attention, it
would be much better to add a comment to your original request.
