I have page on my site which sends out e-mails to all of our clients.
The idea is that if a client’s e-mail bounces, the server catches the
bounce message and flags the client (from the Rails Recipes book).
This works perfectly, except in the event that the destination domain
is my own. Since I’m running my own postfix server on the same box,
instead of accepting the message and then returning an error report,
it immediately throws the following error in my controller:
550 firstname.lastname@example.org: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in
local recipient table
Is this something I can change on my server to allow an actual report
to be emailed back, or do I need to handle this error separately (and
how would I do that?).
