Email Server bouncing problem


Hi,

Our server accepts some kind of emails with formatted data. My script check email and if format wasn't OK reply something like "Bad format...".
Now I have problem, because sometime we can receive email from postmaster@somedomain.com we replying "Bad format..." and postmaster reply "Delivery to the following recipients failed..." and so on...

It's loop. How I can prevent this kind of loops?

I'm using postfix.

Thanks

It sounds like you need to modify your script so that it also tests whether the email has the postmaster address in it.
