Trying to send NDRs to an Exchange 2000 public folder

I'm trying to configure my Exchange 2000 server to deliver NDRs to a public folder, for example:
somecustomer@yahoo.com sends an email to joohn.smith@mydomain.com -- I want a copy of the NDR delivered to the public folder
john.smith@mydomain.com sends an email to somecustomer@yahooo.com -- I want a copy of the NDR delivered to the public folder

I tried to set thepublicfolder@mydomain.com as the address in System Manger > Administrative Groups > First Administrative Group > Servers > MYMAILSERVER > Protocols > SMTP > Default SMTP Virtual Server > Properties menu > Messages tab > Send copy of Non Delivery Report to:.  Then I restarted The Exchange Routing Engine service and SMTP service, per http://support.microsoft.com/kb/294757.  However, now I just get these in the event log:

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      MSExchangeIS Public Store
Event Category:      Transport Delivering
Event ID:      2028
User:            N/A
Computer:      MYMAILSERVER
The delivery of a message sent by public folder THEPUBLICFOLDER5DDDEA074A5A161CB68ECDB23B0D3A0E05D47D has failed.
 To: 'joohn.smith@mydomain.com'

 The non-delivery report has been deleted.

Not going to happen I am afraid.
Public Folders will not accept NDRs. You have to forward the NDRs to a mailbox.
