I will not post instructions to throw away non-delivery notices.
I know that people would mis-use this to cover up their mistakes
so that their users don't find out that mail was mis-handled.
If you have a specialized need that never needs to deliver NDRs,
then it is easy enough to edit the Postfix SMTP client source code
and change the SMTP_STATE_DOT reply handler so that it skips the
server reply code test.
