The situation is that we have a number of guests, say 80, sending through a central mail infrastructure out to the web. The way the network is setup the mail server cannot necessarily initiate connections back to each of the senders.
I understand I can disable bounce messages completely by turning disabling the bounce daemon but I'm concerned if I do this I will miss system-problems. What would be good if all bounces went to postmaster and I could look for them there. There is no reason to ever try to contact the senders back.
Any ideas how to achieve this? Googling mentioned NOTIFY=NEVER and some stuff about smtpd_command_filter although what I'm doing feels like it should be simpler than that. I can get the bounce messages to postmaster using notify_classes but I think that relies upon the bounce daemon.
I'm running CentOS 5.5 and postfix 2.3.3-2.1.el5_2
soft_bounce=yes seems to be another way to disable bounces, but this is not exactly what I want
