How to bounce back a yahoo.co.uk email to the sender

How to bounce back a yahoo.co.uk email to the sender.
I am using free version ofyahoo.

You can click on "spam" and it should block the mails from that address.
The mail won't bounce because that's exactly what you have to avoid when spam mails arrive, but you should end up not receiving any more mails from that address.
The easiest way to bounce back a yahoo.co.uk email to the sender is to click on the Option tab at the top of the page when logged into Yahoo Mail. Click on the Privacy tab on the left hand side of the windows and then select the bullet that states "Block users in the Block list below. I will not be able to send or receive instant messages from users in this list." Then all you have to do is add the individual email addresses that you want to bounce back.

Thanks for the reply but I cannot see the privacy tab ..I am on yahoo.co.uk..
To get to the blocked addresses menu, you click on Options -> Mail Settings -> Blocked Addresses

That however will not generate a bounce message for those mails.  There is no way for you through Yahoo! Mail to tell the server to bounce mails addressed to you from specific addresses.  You can add them to blocked addresses or create a filter that sends them directly to trash or spam -- again not creating a bounce message.

Classifying these mails as spam when they really are not is not the correct action for this.  Even if you did that, they would most likely still show up in your Spam folder and therefore again no bounce will generated.
