Postfix - Handle Bounced Messages

Posted on 2007-10-21

Last Modified: 2013-11-22

I am running Postfix on a FreeBSD server and the way bounced messages are currently handled is to forward them on to a catch-all email address. This is somewhat inefficient for us-especially considering the number of potential bounced messages. Is there a better way of handling this?

I am thinking it would be ideal if for undeliverable messages, they get logged into a database. Any suggestions are welcome.
