If that is the whole purpose I would suggest you use SEC and just filter
the proper log lines for these NDR's and add the events to the MailWatch
I do a similar thing with RBL events in postfix:
I suppose that if you have the MSGID still available you can add the
details to the outgoing message itself.
Feeding NDR's through MS will just add new lines.
