Offline Messages: Users are not getting a bounce back

I just noticed this today, I guess its never come up. But spark is not receiving a bounce back when a user sends a message to an offline user. Other clients “pidgin” receive the bounce back.

Does/Should spark support bounce back messages from offline users?

I think i have never tested this with Spark (i remember only testing it with Exodus many years ago). As we are storing all offline messages, it never came up. Though, Pidgin is showing Code 503 error, which is not very informative either. Spark is showing that a user is paying attention Probably a reaction to a bounce packet.
