Bounce back selective email addresses.

I know nothing of mail management........on the server side. I know little about it on the client side.

I'm running Outlook 2000, at home.  I'm getting a harassing email sequence from an hold nemises. Is there any tool I'm missing or utility I'm unaware of that will allow the email to be "returned" to sender and appear ...........to a novice.......at least as though this (my) email address no longer exists.

My ISP is comcast. Yes I've allready contacted them and asked if they have something that will allow it. "No" is the answer (Yes I know you/I would expect that also, but I'm trying to prevent frivilous reponses here).  

My suspicion is I'm asking for the holy grail regarding defeating spam. in that if one could block or "bounce" back selective emails at the server point, to its originatorr the whole spam issue would have been dealt with long ago.

Again,   I'm looking for a methodology........including buying new software that will/would allow me to specify specific email senders...........NOT WHOLE DOMAINS.........to make it appear that "I" no longer exist.

Yes, I'm familiar with the rules wizard. No, I don't see anything there that addresses this. I only have the default rule wizard installed. Is there an upgrade that would address this? Would I have to upgrade the whole Outlook client?

Please understand, I'm very aware of basic tricks spamers use to disguise their source. I also know that I DON'T know any of the good stuff that I'm sure you do.  My point being, I'm not perporting to try to block spam. I AM.............trying to block specific email addresses from real originating email sources that are NOT trying to disguise themselves.  Like an ex-wife.  Get it?

You can add a rule in outlook that would delete the email , but sending NDR (Non Delivery Report) is on the server side.
