procmail EX_TEMPFAIL

hi all,

I've been getting a ton of EX_TEMPFAIL deferred mail stuck in my mqueue.
 Looks like it is happening for users that are over disk quota.

Also, it doesn't seem that sendmail is mailing the sender back and
telling them the user is over quota (like it did before mailscanner).
 The message just sits in mqueue (I imagine it keeps retrying the send
for 5 days) and then disappears.

Anyway to fix this?  Thanks.
