how to bcc/forward a bouncing msg?

Len Conrad

if bounce, then bcc or forward

... so we can analyze the bounces.

bounce_notice_recipient would be perfect, but it only includes the headers, not the DATA.

thanks
Len

There is no mechanism for delivering complete extra copies of bounce
messages. Even the sender will only get headers if the bounce message
would otherwise be over the bounce_size_limit. If you archive (all)
messages before they bounce, THEN you can retrieve for analysis the
ones that are later found to bounce.
