Bounce <-> Bounce <-> Bounce

I've just taken over handling mail for seven existing domains, and
though the volume isn't all that high I wish I didn't have to deal with
bounces from viruses sent to nonexistent users.

I can understand that it is normal and desirable to send a 5.1.1 User
Unknown response to an e-mail sent to a nonexistent user. However, when
that e-mail is identified as spam, bouncing it means that I get a third
message back, which I get to read personally, as a result.

If I could drop inbound spam to invalid users I could cut the load on
the server down, not to mention the load on my time.
