Sendmail has a DoubleBounceAddress setting in the file taht you can
tell sendmail to forward double-bounced messages to. A double-bounced message is
when someone tries to deliver a message to your system and it boucnes back to
them but since their address was fake it bounces to you.

My DoubleBounceAddress setting is an alias which points to " | cat >> /dev/null"
