Sending failure messages in separate mailbox

Stephan Seitz-3
Hello!

If a user sends a mail and postfix can’t deliver it (user unknown,
mailbox quota, etc.), this user gets the error message.

Is it possible to configure postfix in such a way, that these error
messages are going to a different mailbox?

Many greetings,

        Stephan

The SMTP standard requires that errors are reported to the MAIL
FROM address (it's not just Postfix, but every other mail server
that plays by the rules). If you prefer to receive errors in a
particular place, configure the sending program accordingly.
