It sounds like you just want an autoresponder, something like procmail
and/or vacation will probably do what you want. You'll still have to
explicitly accept mail for those users and deal with it. Note that this
is *not* "bouncing", that's the last thing you want, as it can easily
cause backscatter. Similarly, you should be very careful with any such
autoresponder that you setup for this.
