I really don't want to see any bounce messages. I simply don't care. Is there any way to stop all bounce messages from arriving on my server?
RFC 2142 (http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2142.txt) describes commonly used (and expected) e-mail addresses. A couple of addresses are expected to be valid on your server, namely postmaster@ and abuse@. Further, mail servers expect to be able to send messages from these commonly defined e-mail addresses to your users. If these e-mail addresses are missing (or blocked) your mail server may be considered to be a spam source and may receive a poor reputation. We do not recommend rejecting e-mail for commonly expected e-mail addresses.
However, you can configure PerfectMail to accept message but not deliver them! PerfectMail can accept e-mail, record it your E-mail Activity and then discard the message. To the sender it looks like the e-mail was sent, but you will not receive the message in your inbox. But, you can still view the e-mail using your E-mail Activity Report.
To add senders to the No Delivery List, log in to the Administrators Web Interface and navigate to "Filters > Sender > No Delivery List tab". You can add complete e-mail addresses here or the "name" portion of the e-mail address, such as "postmaster@".
To stop bounce messages from arriving in your inbox add the following entries to the No Delivery List:
Tags: email, smtp, rfc2142, bounce, dsn, postmaster, discard, filter
