Notification if Exchange server rejects message

Good day,

I want to let our Exchange server notify us if it bounces a message due to size restrictions.

I have 2 Exchange 2013 servers having both DAG and CAS roles.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Also agree with a transport rule which can forward or CC/BCC you a copy of the message when it bounces back.
