I was just reading the documentation about it, and found this. However, I fear that this is sort of painting with broad brush strokes. Postfix will reply 550 on any problem even if the final destination server replies with a 4xx. What I really want to do is to make it so that the gateway repeats the error back to the sending server. If the final destination servers says 4xx or 5xx, I need postfix to return the same to the sending server.
