Default postfix is sending "unknown user" bounces

For some reason, Postfix has started bouncing unknown user mail. How do I stop it doing this?

That's a big help, thanks.

However, the soft_bounce seems to be a bit of a temporary fix.

There is a mention of...

"what if you replaced the bounce transport in master.cf with a pipe transport that happily cats the msg into /dev/null?"

Does that seem like a good idea? If so, can you explain in simple terms how to do it?

Since making the change, I notice that the postfix mailqueue has slowly risen from about 200 to over 2000. Not reached the 4 day timeout yet: maybe it'll level off when that happens.

Can someone please delete the spam reply to my question. I detest spammers.

Oh, and if someone could answer my question, that'd be great!
