As many people know Gmail does not have the ability to block messages. The best you can do is define a filter to auto-delete those messages. Even so, some users who are getting harassed or spammed by a specific sender would like to have some sort of a block/bounce ability.

While not a true solution, I've prototyped a method to fake blocking a sender and bounce a message back to them. The setup is as follows:

1. Go to Settings->Labs and enable Canned Response.
2. Create a canned response that looks like it could be a bounce message. I used:
Error 0x0E531127 - The referenced message has been rejected by the sender.
<>
The error code is just made up (as is all of it actually).
3. Go to Settings->Filters and create a new filter.
a. Enter the sender's e-mail address in the From field.
b. Next Step
c. Send Canned Response (and pick the one you created)
d. Create filter.

Note, you can NOT auto-delete the message because then it won't send the canned response. What you can do is create a new label (Bounced) and use the options:
Skip the inbox
Mark as Read
Apply the label [Bounced]
To put them all in an easy location to delete later. Being able to check Delete would be nicer, but I couldn't get that to work.

You're done. Now each time you receive a message from that sender it will be blocked (auto-labeled for later deletion) and bounced (with the above message content).

Now it won't fool an expert as they will realize that's not a true message bounce. But for some people where ANY solution would be welcome, the above might do the trick.
