You're bouncing spam?!

The envelope sender addresses are not real. Your bounces are all likely 
to bounce, or go to innocents.

Don't bounce spam. Nobody does that anymore, really. If on the off 
chance that spam is using a real (harvested) email, an unsuspecting user 
gets a bounce for something they didn't send. So, they email their 
support people. Ugh.
