       Mail::Message::Construct::Bounce - bounce a Mail::Message

        $message->bounce(To => 'you')->send;

       Complex functionality on Mail::Message objects is implemented in
       different files which are autoloaded.  This file implements the
       functionality related to bouncing messages off to other destinations.

       Constructing a message


           The program calling this method considers itself as an intermediate
           step in the message delivery process; it therefore leaves a resent
           group of header fields as trace.

           When a message is received, the Mail Transfer Agent (MTA) adds a
           "Received" field to the header.  As OPTIONS, you may specify lines
           which are added to the resent group of that received field.
           "Resent-" is prepended before the field-names automatically, unless
           already present.

           You may also specify an instantiated
           Mail::Message::Head::ResentGroup (RG) object.  See
           Mail::Message::Head::ResentGroup::new() for the available options.
           This is required if you want to add a new resent group: create a
           new "Received" line in the header as well.

           If you are planning to change the body of a bounce message, don't!
           Bounced messages have the same message-id as the original message,
           and therefore should have the same content (message-ids are
           universally unique).  If you still insist, use


            my $bounce = $folder->message(3)->bounce(To => 'you', Bcc => 'everyone');


            my $rg     = Mail::Message::Head::ResentGroup->new(To => 'you',
               Received => 'from ... by ...');

       Error: Method bounce requires To, Cc, or Bcc

           The message bounce() method forwards a received message off to
           someone else without modification; you must specified it's new
           destination.  If you have the urge not to specify any destination,
           you probably are looking for reply(). When you wish to modify the
           content, use forward().
