I don't have a 5.5 server any more, but I seem to remember that there was a setting for this in the property pages of the Internet Mail Connector.  Can you see something like 'Forward undeliverable mail to:' in there somewhere?  Unless I am imagining it?

Dear howart,
I belive that you are talking about NDR. You have postmaster account setup in exchange 5.5
Check the link below for the help on setting postmaster account (Check the answer for third question)
