I wouldn't have received the bounces in such cases. The senders of those
messages would have received them, and likely concluded that my email address
no longer worked at all.
I assume that you have the technical abilities to run your own mail
server. So if you think commercial (or free) providers do a lousy job,
why don't you do it yourself?
I currently have an arrangement for delivery of my mail that is
satisfactory to me, if a bit expensive. But it's clear that for the
public Internet in general, spam filtering is still a problem that has a
significant negative effect on reliability of email. I think it's worth
considering whether IETF could improve this situation via some
combination of improved protocol and sound, carefully-reviewed advice
for implementors and/or operators.
